Carvin Announces CT7 & CT74 California Carved Top Guitars Seven-string versions of the popular CT6

United States
San Diego, CA -- Carvin, the name musicians everywhere trust for high quality guitars, basses, instrument amplifiers, recording equipment, and sound reinforcement products, is excited to introduce the latest addition to our lineup of Custom Shop California Carved Top guitars, the CT7 and CT74 seven string models. While similar to Carvin’s popular CT6 and CT4 counterparts, the CT7 and CT74 have been designed specifically with the tonal and sonic characteristics of a seven string instrument in mind. The body is made from hand-selected alder, which adds brightness in the lower registers of the instrument, and a set-in Eastern hardrock maple neck further accentuates the tone. The CT7 features a standard 4A flamed maple top with natural body binding and a matching headstock; other exotic top woods are available, including 4A quilted maple, flamed spalted maple, flamed koa and burled maple. The CT74 has a plain maple top, and can be finished in an assortment of standard solid colors, as well as optional solid metallic colors and translucent stains.

Electronics on both models consist of two Carvin premium A70 active humbuckers along with a single volume, single tone and 3-way pickup selector. For players who prefer the simplicity of a passive pickup system, Carvin’s new optional D26 passive humbuckers can be ordered. Other features, including an ebony fingerboard with abalone dot inlays, medium-jumbo frets and Sperzel locking tuners compliment the CT7 and CT74. Carvin’s “M” Bridge, with tune-o-matic bridge and strings fed through the body, is standard; a Floyd Rose tremolo is also offered. Dozens of Custom Shop options, including body and neck woods, finishes, fingerboards, fretwire, inlays and more allow customers to create a unique instrument suited to their playing style and personal tastes.
