THE HARDEST WORKING CASE IN SHOWBIZ
Premium Protection Since 1969
As Led Zeppelin was dropping its debut album, when the Beatles were still top of the charts, the very year of Woodstock’s epic concert, Calton Cases began.

I didn’t really appreciate how tough these cases are, until I shipped a guitar in a lesser case and it ended up getting damaged. With Calton, it’s […]

“Very cool videos of the building process. Calton cases are without a doubt the best fitting, finest quality anywhere. Here are a couple photos of the CC Blue archtop in its new custom Catlon case. Perfect fit, and beautiful matching color. Thanks again, Tad Brown”
