Got a couple PM's and Emails re questions on The RS 4 fits a Calton Case. Thus a picture being worth a thousand words thought I would share the particulars. Likely questions coming from the vantage point ( I'm guessing) of will the RS Electric fit into a Calton Case made specifically for a Gibson Les Paul.

Will Let you be the judge cop

The CALTON CASES as many are familiar are second to none and handmade custom for a specific guitar. Jim at Calton is most helpful should you have any questions on their cases also quite a mandolin player. And for you Lefties makes Left Hand Cases - I know of no one else who does this.

Anyway friends no affiliation to Calton thought I would just share my experiences with these cases with you.

Larrivee is the Blue Case

Gibson is the Red Case

Cases are exactly the same on outside, it's the inside that is customized

Very cool - and very nice cases.

As to lefty cases, I think you're "right". The only other lefty case I've ever seen is one that I had made for me by Coffin Cases some years ago. I asked them if they would make me a lefty case, and they did. I don't know if they've ever made another one; I don't think I've ever seen one offered anywhere.

I think I want one of those cases just for ME. They look so snugly and comfortable. Funny, tho'. The case for an RS2 would cost more than I paid for the guitar.  blush

The topic of Calton Cases came up on another thread thus thought I would re-share this one by a slight bump for those who may have missed it
