Stunning New Scott Walker Guitars Arrive

It’s so easy to under-appreciate the painstaking number of hours that go into hand-building a guitar and, while every luthier has their own way of approaching the build process, a handbuilt instrument is something that certainly cannot be rushed. We certainly wouldn’t have it any other way, but it does mean that patience sometimes needs to be in abundance while waiting for them to arrive.

We’ve just receive three freshly-finished guitars from Scott Walker out in Santa Cruz, California. We’ve been representing Scott for a number of years now and his guitars always exceed our expectations.

We first spec’d this Phantom model back in 2015 after selling our first Phantom, and it has been worth the wait! It features Scott Walker’s incredible Fathom finish.

This striking model features a lightweight Honduran Mahogany body with a Flamed Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard. Equipped with a pair of Lollar single-coil Jazzmaster-style pickups, this guitar has a fantastically versatile character, lending itself well to metal and rock through to jazz.

  • Medium Jumbo Frets
  • 25" Scale, 22 fret
  • Tone Pros Bridge
  • Custom 'Walker' tailpiece
  • Light weight Honduran Mahogany body

Also just arrived are two of Scott's Electro models, one in High Gloss Black and the other in Candy Apple Red. This familiar looking design features an Alder body with a Hard Rock Maple neck and Ebony fretboard. It has three Lipstick pickups with some interesting features in the controls.

Instead of a master volume and a master tone control, there are two volume controls. One controls the level of the neck and bridge pickups, while the other is dedicated to the level of the middle pickup, meaning you have exceptional control over all three pickups. There is even a push/pull on the first volume control, which activates a buffer.
