Kent "Carlos" Everett has been building guitars since 1977 and is mainly self-taught. During the 1980's, Everett worked for and later owned the Atlanta Guitar Works - the premier repair shop in the area. While repairing guitars during the week Kent was also making guitars in the evenings and weekends. He was making a variety of archtop, semi-hollow, solid-body electrics, acoustics, Dobros & mandolins at the time and even patented an electric guitar design. In 1990 Everett was able to close the Guitar Works and began building full time - opening Everett Guitars a one man workshop focused on handmade high-end acoustic guitars. By the mid 1990's Everett Guitars was making over 50 guitars a year with a network of dealers across the USA and Europe. Everett launched the Laurel Series in 2000 - these guitars (128 in total) were made in collaboration with Terada in Japan. In 2003 Kent decided to reduce his workload and now makes 20 high end guitars each year.
