Calton Cases of Austin: The Highest Quality Guitar Cases We’ve Ever Seen

For over 40 years, Calton Cases has been making fine instrument cases–but these aren’t like any guitar case you’ll find for $109 at your big-box musical instrument store. Calton makes a fiberglass-shelled, hyper-protective, handmade masterpiece. And they do all this right here in Austin.


There’s no showroom in Austin, cases are sold through a network of authorized dealers. Their approach goes way beyond traditional guitar case design–Calton’s cases offer much thicker padding and super materials and finish than a run-of-the-mill case. Calton’s offers a wide range of customization options. Of course–for a case of this durability and quality, expect to pay between $500 and $1000.

In 2013, Calton’s sold to new owners–and those owners moved their handcrafting/assembly operation here in Austin.
