Once upon a time Carvin guitars were very hard to come by outside of the USA, especially down here in Australia. I still remember the first time I saw one in person, and was blown away by the build quality. Then I reviewed a pair of Carvins for my very first assignment for Mixdown magazine back in 2006, when there was briefly an Australian dealer. Then they seemed to disappear from this part of the world. And for many years, visiting Carvin’s website was a frustrating experience for we non-US folk, instead being directed to a clunky ‘Carvin World’ site that didn’t seem to have much on it. Now that’s all changed: as of April 1 (but it’s no April Fool’s joke), Kiesel/Carvin guitars are much more attainable for we international folks.
The complete inventory is now listed on the site, including cool stuff like the Jason Becker and Greg Howe signature models. Just find the items you’re interested in, add them to your cart and get ready to rock (although if you are in China, Japan, Korea or Thailand you should contact their official dealer here.
