This new-condition, never played, John Walker Petty Creek Custom has excellent appointments. Highest grade Mahogany neck with a vintage U profile. Ebony peghead veneer shows pearl logo JWalker at top with wooden truss rod cover lower, near nut. The nut is unbleached bone and is perfectly made and polished. Gabon Ebony fingerboard has medium dot inlays and ivoroid side dot position markers. Fingerboard is bound with Ebony binding. Beautiful tight grain Adirondack Red Spruce top with a mid-30’s style sunburst finish. Top and back bound with single grained Ivoroid. Fire stripe pickguard. Soundhole rosette is ivoroid-tortoise-ivoroid. Gabon Ebony bridge with unbleached bone intonated saddle. Ebony bridge pins and endpin. Metal strap button installed in proper position on side of neck heel. Back and sides are wonderful quarter-sawn Honduran Rosewood. We could go on and on about this Rosewood. It’s very beautiful and strongly reminds you of Brazilian Rosewood in the look and tone. Tuners are Nickel Waverly with grained Ivoroid buttons.

As we mentioned, this is an unplayed guitar and frets show no sign of use. Currently if ordered today, this guitar would cost more and requiring probably 14-15 months waiting time to be built. We bring it to you in amazing condition, ready to play today.

Comes with original hard case.
