  • PJD’s flagship instrument, the Carey Elite, is constructed by hand using the highest quality components and tone woods. The body is chambered and lightweight and the contoured heel block allows for ease access to the upper fret. The solid figured quilted or flame Maple tops deliver tones equal to their aesthetics. The hand-carved Maple neck delivers the feel of a heavily played-in vintage instrument and a scale length that pays homage to tradition. The Carey Elite’s premium features are driven by the legendary Bareknuckle Humbucker Old Guard or True Grit pickups, to create one of the most extraordinary guitars on the market today.
