About Us Carlton Oakes is a solo guitarist who started making quality instruments for himself. His criteria are to make the best instrument possible with the materials available. His classical and flamenco guitars use elements of the Spanish makers developing the best sound qualities to his ear. Each instrument is unique and has a personality of its own. Carlton’s “Mikazuki” acoustic electric steel string guitar gives the player easier access to the higher playing positions. The absence of the traditional sound hole allows the top to vibrate without the sound hole reinforcements. Sound ports are at the side of the lower bout and in the open circle. When choosing a guitar, the instrumentalist must not use the technical habits formed playing their current instrument, but explore what the new instrument’s capabilities are. If the player can do this, then they can make a better decision choosing the right instrument for them.
