Red Carlton Cases Archtop model. The best cases (in our opinion) money can buy….
This product is currently on hold.
An absolute must for anyone taking their pride and joy out on the road is a high quality hard shell case, such as this awesome Calton Electric Guitar Case. This particular one is fitted for the Archtop or Acoustic shape. It provides incredible support (great for those fragile Gibson headstocks…) and the fibreglass construction makes for an incredibly sturdy solution for the working musician.
If you do not fancy our just about MINT condition example you could always buy a new one from Carlton in Austin TX which would set you back $1,215 plus shipping and import taxes making an approximate total of £1,200 with a 4-6 week waiting time before shipping…
