Many of you regulars are familiar with John Walker from his past history of fine guitar building. John was a "Master Luthier" alongside Ren Ferguson at Gibson, Montana for several years, directly hand-building some of the greatest guitars Gibson ever produced. Several of the most dramatic "one of a kind" Gibson show-piece guitars that are immortalized in the "Gibson Fabulous Flattops" book, were built by John Walker. Later, John spent some years as Steven Anderson's "right-hand man", building Archtops and Mandolins. Now he has announced a line of his own guitars - several "refined" traditional designs, as well as some new designs.
As time goes by we will show more and more of these great guitars. Remember... this is a "one-man" shop, and production is very limited, so don't hesitate too long to get one.
If you are a careful "thinker", and I know all of you browsing our website are, you'll see right away that these prices are a bit lower than they need to be... as a way to reward the early buyers.
