CALTON custom fitted fiberglass instrument cases are rugged, well balanced and attractive hard shelled cases with interiors tailored to each instrument. Each half of every case is hand moulded in a single piece, using pigmented resin, with no seams to separate and colour that is integral to the fibreglass. All hardware is high quality plated steel, attached to the case with steel rivets and reinforcing plates. Careful attention is paid to the placement of the leather handle in order to provide the optimum in comfort and balance.
A PVC strip completely edges both top and bottom halves of the case. This strong, flexible strip, combined with the natural water repellent qualities of fibreglass, provides an almost perfect seal against the elements. Case interiors are hand crafted from high quality foam padding, using up to 15 measurements and a template of the instrument. All interior surfaces are finished in crushed velour, and the pickbox is topped with a large foam pad that cushions the neck. The neck is further protected with a padded guide that restricts side-to-side movement.
No wonder Calton Cases was named Players' Choice Award-winner in 1998 and Players' Choice Gold Award-winner in 2000, 2002 and 2004 by Acoustic Guitar magazine.
