New (Demo). No signs of any careless handling or player wear on the instrument. This guitar has two very polite lines of finish checking that are difficult to spot.
Extremely highly figured Maple back and sides. Mahogany neck. High grade Englemann Spruce top. Beautiful blonde finish. Multiple ivoroid binding around top and back edge, with black line showing on top, back and sides. Headstock and fingerboard are bound with ivoroid. Ebony fingerboard, peghead overlay and bridge. Abalone JWalker logo inlaid in headstock. Abalone cut diamond inlays in fingerboard. Unbleached bone nut. Fossile ivory
"thru-saddle". Boxwood bridge pins and endpin. Complex "zipper" wooden marquetry back strip in center of back. Gold Waverly pre-war style open-back tuners. 1 3/4" width at nut. 2 5/16" pin spacing at bridge.
This is a uniquely designed parlor guitar. 9 1/2" width at upper bout, 13 1/2" width at lower bout. 3 3/4" depth at upper bout, 4 3/4" at lower bout. Typical of guitars hand made by John Walker, it has a very nice 'pop' at the attack of each note and great balance.
This guitar would cost six or eight hundred dollars more if John Walker hadn't deemed it to be sold at a discount because he took it to shows for product display. It would be an excellent choice for anyone who loves beautiful looking guitars that also sound beautiful.
