CM Guitars combines Charl Malherbe's passion for vintage instruments with innovative design and well balanced modern styles.

Handcrafted in Johannesburg, South Africa, each CM guitar is carefully constructed, from choice selected timbers and the finest hardware and pickups available. Meticulously built, from cutting and shaping, to meet Charl's exacting standards of fit and finish – nothing is overlooked and no detail is too small. Each instrument features exceptional fret work with highly polished frets and smooth and rounded fret ends combined with a rounded fret board edge for that comfortable played in feel from new.

There are currently two unique models available:

  • Lola, a single cutaway design with a solid body or semi hollow body and a set neck.
  • Nina, a double cutaway designed as a semi hollow body instrument with a set neck.

Both are proudly designed by CM Guitars that are available to order. Both models, allow you to customise your instrument from a choice of timber, hardware, pickups as well as a variety of important, smaller personal details.

These are the first steps toward your dream instrument, a CM Guitar.
