San Diego, CA (July 19, 2006)–Carvin plans to mark its 60th anniversary with a huge celebration scheduled for Saturday, August 12 at corporate headquarters in San Diego. The all-day event will feature factory tours, a look at vintage Carvin gear, special performances by Carvin endorsers Bunny Brunel, Tony Macalpine, Craig Chaquico, and others, along with meet-and-greet signings by Carvin endorsers Allan Holdsworth and Steve Vai, in addition to the performing artists.
Carvin corporate management will also be on site and available, including company founder, Lowell Kiesel. Open to the public and scheduled to run from 10 a.m. through 6 p.m. that day, attendees will be able to get a first-hand look at Carvin’s manufacturing facilities. Watching a guitar being built or observing the precision with which a CNC router works its magic is, simply put, amazing.
Equally impressive is the company’s vintage guitars and amplifiers collection, which will be on display in a special museum tent. Here, attendees can get a first-hand look at products from a bygone era and witness the progression that has resulted in the company’s product arsenal of today.
Carson Kiesel, president of Carvin Corporation, commented on the company’s upcoming birthday, “As a family-run business, reaching the 60-year mark is a very special occasion for us, and we’re all very excited about sharing this day with the many musicians who, over the years, have contributed to our company’s success. I look forward to meeting many of our valued customers and hearing some inspiring musical performances.”
The address for Carvin’s anniversary celebration is 12340 World Trade Drive in San Diego.
