Custom Classic T Type N0. 1-111005
This is where my guitar building obsession began and this is my first. By the time I was up to finishing it I knew it was not to be the last so I gave it a serial number. It came up very well in the end after an agonisingly steep learning curve which included several paint jobs. :( I discovered that there was a lot more to it than just screwing parts altogether.
It was a truly lovely guitar and I've often regretted selling it. It was sold very soon after I finished it and the cash of course was used to buy tools to build more guitars.

Sold to Nick from Sydney and he says:
Carlton Guitars are top notch...dont bother with the big F.
Nice, light guitar with lotsa tone. This guitar is something else.....I have just played 3 hours non stop. Funny -Roy Buchanan comes rolling out brilliantly (volume swells on control - hard but good), the other never could do it. Yep, the Broadcaster pups have it hands down.
Carlton custom built instruments are made to exacting standards using top quality air dried tone-woods and the finest quality, industry standard hardware available. They are built by my hands from start to finish specifically for you. I I won't compromise quality for price. I am dedicated to creating fine tone unlike the multinational guitar factories that are dedicated to making money.
