PJD Carey Elite in Cherry Burst - Handmade in the UK

The stunning PJD Carey Elite is the flagship model from this 2010-established Yorkshire guitar builder. Beautifully hand-built, the Carey Elite features a chambered, bound swamp ash body, here paired with a flamed maple top. In a neat touch, the body cavity covers are constructed form the same wood as the body top, in the same finish.

The neck on the Carey Elite is constructed from quartersawn roasted maple, with a custom neck profile based on a standard "C" shape. Combining the purification benefits of roasted maple, with the superior strength of the quarter sawn cut, this neck is highly stable with outstanding resonance transfer. It is topped with an Indian Rosewood fretboard with compound 10”-12” radius, allowing seamless chorded playing at the nut, as well as intuitive string bends further up the neck. The heal block is contoured for comfort.

In terms of pickups, this particular PJD Carey Elite has been fitted with two Bareknuckle Old Guard Humbuckers. Appropriately for a UK-hand-built guitar, these pickups are hand-wound in the South West of England. They feature Alnico II magnets and respond well to a variety of styles, from classic blues to alternative tones. With a focus on an open, dynamic tonal output, these refined pickups suit the character of the Carey Elite perfectly.

A 42mm bone nut, Gotoh Hardtail bridge and Gotoh Vintage-Style tuners complete the package, ensuring the hardware quality meets the standard of the guitar itself. The Carey Elite is supplied with in a PJD-branded Hiscox hard case and comes with a PJD certificate of authenticity.
