The CS624, CS424, and CS342 offer 24-fret single-cuts at different price and feature levels.

San Diego, CA (December 18, 2011) -- Thanks to customer requests and the popularity of their 24-fret California Carved Top guitars, Carvin is pleased to offer their California Single guitars in new 24-fret versions. Like the 22-fret CS6, CS4, and CS3, these new models are handcrafted at Carvin's San Diego Custom Shop from the finest materials, including premium mahogany for the body and set neck, fast-playing ebony fingerboards, and genuine abalone dot inlays.


The new CS624 features a standard 4A flamed maple top and matching headstock, which can be finished in any of Carvin's deep triple step finishes. Optional top woods, including 4A quilted maple, flamed Hawaiian koa, flamed spalted maple and burled maple are available with natural binding. The standard ebony fingerboard sports medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets, and many other fret choices in nickel and stainless steel are available, as are other fingerboard woods such as rosewood, birdseye maple and flamed maple.

The CS424 has the same features as the CS624, with a plain maple carved top, which can be finished in any of Carvin's standard solid, optional metallic, or optional translucent finishes. The CS324 has no top wood, just a beautifully sculpted mahogany body, which can also be finished in Carvin's translucent or solid finishes. Medium-jumbo frets, Sperzel locking tuners and a 24K gold headstock logo complete the package, and Carvin's hundreds of Custom Shop options are available for custom-tailoring the guitars.

All three models are equipped with Classic Series C22 pickups, a master volume control, master tone control that doubles as a push/pull coil splitter, and a 3-way pickup selector.

Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.
