    Here's mine. I got it about a month ago. Still a little gluey smelling, but it's dissipating.

    Nice. I'm a Gibson fan and I love the Gibson branding on that Calton.

    Lovely!! I even spy some Mapes strings! I'm a fan of them. I tried them and they were lasting forever, so I put on some GHS and the difference is noticeable. I miss them.

    I am a fan of the Mapes strings. I like their Dobro strings too. I had Black Diamonds on when these pictures were taken, but honestly, I prefer the Mapes.

    Below is a guitar case Keith made in Aldershot, England in the 1980s. It was custom fitted for a Grand Auditorium style guitar I built which was 16 1/2" wide on the lower bout - so this may have been his biggest case at the time. No badge, just a foil sticker in the badge recess. This is a fiberglass case from a time when your acoustic might be sharing the van with an 8 x 10" cabinet, it's not light.

    Key takeaway being how well-conceived and enduring his earliest design has proved to be. Just tweaks ever since.

    They were quite popular at the time with UK folk players, especially those with roadies to carry them. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the tweaks is lighter weight - the graphics have certainly come on a bit

    That’s new compared to mine! Same size/shape. Mine’s the same shade of blue but with scratches and a burgundy velvet interior. Keith built it for me in 1976 in the days before he introduced the badge recess.

    The late great Derek Brimstone turned up with a yellow one and refused to give me Keith’s address until I promised to get one in a diffrent colour!

    I love your case...i guess it's a gen 1! You have a great history with CC, thanks for the post!
