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 of my items are in stock and ready to ship unless otherwise noted, 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

 You can also hear a lot more of my products in action on my own personal music page WWW.REVERBNATION.COM/CARLJOHNSON

 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 slight delays with the larger, more labor intensive items (Cabinets, Cigar Box Guitars) depending on how many orders have come in recently. As of January 12 2020 I am going to be taking a short break from the cabinet workshop, I will pick up on the cabinet orders again in early May so all cabinet orders placed during that time will be filled in a first come first serve basis when I return. I do my best but the cabinets are very labor intensive. 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 had 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!



    Please if you have ANY problems with the site (cart issues, problems with the shipping calculator, trouble finding exactly which options you want etc) do not hesitate to shoot me an email at carlscustomguitars@gmail.com, I am always available and want to make sure you get exactly what you are looking for...Happy Shopping!!!
