Guitar design and manufacturing begins in Fall of 1998. Initially we built handmade guitars and also imported guitars and parts for assembly and final setup in the USA.

Carlson Musical Instruments Wholesale, LLC. officially founded in Jan. 2001.

Carlson Musical Instruments makes their international debute by exhibiting at Winter NAMM booth hall E #1140 at Anaheim Convention Center January of 2004.

Carlson Musical Instruments restructures manufacturing and begins 100% in house production at the Clackamas, Oregon facility. New models are introduced after the purchase of CNC Machinery in 2008.  ALL Guitars are built in our 2 locations in the Portland Oregon region, production line models are built in our Clackamas facility, and custom shop models are built by hand in our original location. CNC machines offer better consistency and accuracy in carving guitar neck and bodies while finish work is performed by hand, making each guitar beautiful, unique, and consistent.  New models become available January 2008. Carlson Guitars move to a larger facility with 50% more square footage Aug. of 2008. Carlson Guitars custom shop is moved to our larger Clackamas facility, all production is now done in Clackamas, Oregon USA. New showroom is opened April 2010, dealers, distributors and musicians are welcome to come visit us.
