Hard Rock Collection's Iconic Axes, Part 1
Carl Perkins’ Micro Frets Spacetone
Maryland-based builder Micro Frets crafted this Spacetone model for rockabilly legend Carl Perkins in the early ’70s. These axes are a bit under the radar with collectors, but they’re extremely well-constructed and fine-sounding instruments. Note the unusual compensated nut and “Calibrato” vibrato. These innovative units were very much ahead of their time.
