A Caseadillo case cover, of course!

Not sure I could handle this! Like a left-handed can opener, I would have a hard time dealing with a left-handed guitar case.

Had an artist friend come up with a proper design for this rare guitar.
That looks so good!

I bought the Calton case cover too. You get two straps (one with case and one with cover) which can then be used to carry the case in a backpack style.

Obviously an individual can do what they want but I find the idea of protecting the case kinda funny. That's what these are for, taking the bumps and bruises instead of the tolex cases or the guitar itself.

If you use the search function, Dale, a forum member with user handle, maplebaby, had a long thread where he posted many photos of his Caltonís. Other Calton owners posted as well. There were some beauties in that thread as I remember. Worth checking out.
Best,
Jayne

That looks great, Dale. I was just remembering a previous thread from a while back - pre-pandemic, for sure, where you shared gorgeous pics of your Caltonís.
Best,
Jayne

I never thought I could actually get excited about a guitar case.....but you just proved me wrong.

I guess the only issue is that this may be the 2023 version of the 1970's Martin "steal me" cases. It would tempt me, and I'm an honest person!

Oh man! I absolutely love the two different colors used for the top and bottom of the case. Making it red, white, and blue (interior) is even more awesome.

The bumper stickers are also a really nice touch.

Green one on the bottom is a very early Calgary Calton case that has seen plenty of miles.

Blue one on top is a new Canadian MainStage case, that looks and feels nearly identical, but is one pound lighter than the Calton.
