No. 2-010406 - T Type "The Green Dream"
I know where this one is and got to play it again 10 years after I sold it at a gig to a mate of mine. I was blown away at how nice it really is. I remember taking it out the first time to a gig and marvelling at its power and sustain.
This one had a huge steel neck plate which was used because of a mistake in the machining. It was a lucky error as I found the mass of the neck plate gave the guitar an extra dimension in tone and sustain. From there grew the idea of using heavy duty neck plates which I have used on pretty much all bolt on builds since.
Neck: Maple rosewood
Body: Myrtle contoured body
Pickups: Duncan Broadcaster / vintage rhythm
Tuners: Gotoh SD91
Bridge: Gotoh HD
Sold it to Paul at a gig one night. He calls it "The green dream"
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.
