With a Polar Vortex rolling across us here in the USA and a post Football season lull settling in what better time to scratch that G.A.S. (Gear Acquistion Syndrome) itch and save a full 10% off your entire order here on the site. Simply enter coupon code "Freeze" in the coupon code box at checkout (without the quotes) and save some big $$$, that's right, all products in all catergories, time to score yourself some sweet handmade gear and support a true "small business" in the process, we are all in this together hehe!

 

Here I am giving a demo of my  Deluxe Model Cigar Box Guitar with a little help from my Speaker Soak Attenuator & one of my Dovetailed Pine Blues Jr Replacement Cabs

 Please note: It's been a very busy season here, please be aware that I do make each and every one of my items by hand, one at a time, and as a result sometimes there can be some delays with the larger items, more labor intensive items (Cabinets, Cigar Box Guitars...) depending on how many orders have come in recently. Currently we are a little backlogged on cabinet orders, there can be a few week turnaround time depending on which one you are interested in/purchasing. Feel free to shoot me an email about availability before placing an order if there is a huge time issue. I do my very best to stay ahead and keep up with the orders, and have NEVER has a customer not receive their merchandise, but I am just one person and there's only so many hours in each day. My quality standards are very high and I will not send something out with my name on it that is not finished and up to them. Please be patient and be assured that the handcrafted goodness heading your way will be something you treasure for a lifetime and be VERY much worth any short wait. I email all of the shipping/tracking info when each order goes out so until that hits your inbox just know I am hard at work making things happen for you, thank you!

Just a friendly reminder from a hard-working guitar guy: Carl's Custom is a ONE man operation, not only do I make everything I sell by hand but I also handle the processing, packaging, shipping, maintain the site(s), answer all questions/emails, sweep the floors, make the coffee, clean the bathroom etc etc, all my items are in stock and ready to ship unless otherwise noted, I have been selling a LOT of custom cabinets lately so please allow about a week or so on those purchases, they may get out to you faster but depending on how many orders I get on a given day I  just want to play it safe and let you know that I am working my tail off to get those cabs to you as quick as I possibly can, each one is a custom handmade cabinet and I am the ONLY one here making everything, I do my very best to keep caught up and to get your orders out to you as fast as I possibly can while still adhering to my high quality standards, thank you all so much again for your support, I love having the opportunity to do what I do here!!!   -Carl
