The 90's saw many changes at
Carvin. The X and V guitars and doubleneck guitars would be retired after
their successful run in the 80's. However, many new models would be added
- the Bolt, Holdsworth, TL series, 7-stringers, hollowbodies and
acoustic/electrics. On top of that, Carvin officially launched the Custom
Shop, which allowed customers to create their own guitar from thousands of
combinations of woods, finishes, hardware and electronics.
The marketing would go through a variety of
changes, as well, from landscape-oriented guitar-only catalogs, to the modern,
smaller catalog in use today.
In 1996, Carvin would celebrate it's 50th
Anniversary, and would release an Anniversary model guitar to commemorate the
event. Also in the 90's, Carvin would pack up, and relocate to their
current state-of-the-art facilities in San Diego.
