I was so impressed with the first of these that I purchased for our inventory, that I invested in another. Offered here is a Scott Walker "Special" built in 2009

After years of playing and working on guitars, including several years working for Richard Hoover at Santa Cruz Guitars, Scott Walker opened his own California shop in 2005.  He specializes in very unique electrics of his own design. His guitars feature hand-carved design elements and high-end electronics. He builds just 35 or so guitars a year and there is currently a 3+ year waiting list for his instruments.  

The Scott Walker Special is a 22 fret instrument with a 24-3/4" string scale.  This example has a semi-hollow Mahogany body, a Lacewood top and a Mahogany neck.  It is finished in walnut lacquer and has a total weight of just 6 pounds, 10 ounces.  The neck is a 60's oval C with depth measurements of .85" at the first fret and .91" at the twelfth.  It has an Asian Ebony fretboard with a 12" radius, medium jumbo fret wire and a 1-11/16" bone nut. The neck feels like it came off a Gibson SG, in fact, the whole guitar has a bit of an SG feel to it, with the body size, depth and neck shape.  The electronics include two Lollar Marvel 90 pickups along with a master volume control, master tone control and a three-way toggle. The Marvel 90's are a humbucker-sized single coil that like a P90, sound sweet at lower volumes and get nice and fat sounding when driven. To this Scott added an on-board effects loop (OBEL) with it's own toggle and input jack so you can link the guitar's pickups directly to your pedal board, pre-volume. It also has a a built-in active pre-amp (mid-boost) with an on-off toggle and a separate level control.  With this circuit, you have a variable mid boost at your fingertips whenever you want it.

The resulting instrument is amazing.  It is light, balanced and a joy to play.  The tones you can get out of the guitar are amazing, with or without using the onboard effects. I've included a clean sound sample of this guitar, but it only begins to demonstrate the tones you can get out of this guitar. 

Built in 2009, this marvelous instrument remains in near mint condition with no flaws of any significance and the frets show no observable wear. It comes in its original Cedar Creek case, also in great condition.

You can commission one of these today from Scott at a cost of $10,750 and a wait of over three years according to his web site.  Instead, get this near mint 2009 guitar for less than half that amount and you can have it today. If you like guitars that are unique, incredibly well built and incredibly capable, then perhaps this Scott Walker Special is for you.  Click 'Buy Now' and make it yours. You will be blown away!
