Caton, Kevin
When I was 17-years-old, my grandfather gave me my first guitar. It was a 1965 Gibson ES-330TD. I immediately started to clean it up. I polished the pickup covers and tuning keys, cleaned the fingerboard and made the body shine. Even though I played the guitar every day, I found that I was more fascinated by how it worked and how it was built. Since that first guitar, I haven't looked back. My passion for building continues to expand; my understanding is constantly broadening, and my curiosity only grows stronger. Every piece on every Caton Guitar is handcrafted by me. Nothing is CNC'd. I personally bend the sides, design and install the rosette, make the linings, binding and purfling. Absolutely everything is made by me.
