Carvin Guitars Introduces Zebrawood Fretboards

Zebrawood has a very exotic look with its heavy streaking.

San Diego, CA (August 28, 2014) -- Carvin, the name musicians trust for high quality USA-made guitars, basses, instrument amplifiers, recording equipment, and sound reinforcement products, is excited to announce our newest wood option.

Zebrawood fretboards are now available among the selection of exotic fingerboard options through the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop. Zebrawood has a very unique exotic look with its heavy dark streaking and pattern. Its tonal qualities are similar to Rosewood providing a warm amplified tone for both guitar and bass. The example images also show two more new options now available. All new German-made Jescar EVO gold fretwire and Deep Lava finish are also featured. This wire is a nickel-free copper alloy similar in color to 12k gold, and will not turn brassy or show discoloration. Deep Lava is a special deep staining process that gives a Lava Reddish-Orange finish that really makes the figure of the wood top "pop".
