Hotrod Type T No. 11-300508
Privately commissioned build
Second of the two built from the same timber stock. Tone is brilliant and clear with a focussed bottom and solid mid punch.
Came home for a spruce up and a replacement pick guard some five years later. Had seen plenty of stage time and looked a little tired, After a setup, cut and polish it looked like new and was ready for the road again.

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.
