John Walker Acoustic Guitars In Stock


- Guitars from John Walker -
      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.

John Walker Lolo Creek 1 Buy John Walker Lolo Creek 1 2009 John Walker Lolo Creek Guitar 'In Stock'

     Exc.(-) Condition. There are several stray lines of lacquer checking propogating from the bridge on the top. Otherwise, there is some minor player wear, but this guitar is in mostly fine condition.
     Red spruce top with "tobacco" sunburst finish. Beautiful Mahogany back, sides and neck. Top, back, fingerboard, peghead and inside of soundhole are all single-bound with ivoroid. Ebony peghead overlay with JWalker logo inlaid in Abalone. Radiused Ebony fretboard with Abalone "cut-diamond" inlays. Nickel Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons. Ebony bridge, bone "cut-through" saddle and nut.
     These small-bodied guitars are traditionally utilized for finger-picking, and this one does sound exceptional when finger-picked. However, this guitar is not at all constrained acoustically or dynamically to a certain style of playing. This instrument will not be "over-played" with a heavy flatpick attack, and has plenty of volume and power to compete in any jam.
