Walker Electric Guitars

JimsonFront

Scott Walker, of Walker Electric Guitars, started out by carving necks for the Santa Cruz Guitar Company. Santa Cruz builds heirloom quality instruments. True artisans.

Scott developed his craft at Santa Cruz and then began his own line of guitars. I have featured the Jimson above, largely because I am thinking more and more about a Telecaster style guitar, although Scott has an incredible selection of instruments here.

The Jimson itself has a body made from resonant Sugar Pine. I love the sound of pine on my Stratocaster. Pine is also a challenging tonewood for a builder. The body of the Jimson looks amazing.

The pickups are wound by hand, the pickguard is Italian celluloid and the neck is maple.
