Another legend in the show room! We've got a 2003 SJ from Kim Walker in the shop in practically mint condition. Kim Walker's status as a master among masters is universally known and celebrated, and when this beauty was pulled out of the case, we felt like celebrating, ourselves. This guitar belonged to Jerre Haskew, the former president of Guild Guitars who hired Kim Walker to save the company and pave the way for his own work. The cut of this Brazilian Rosewood is absorbing, with dark chocolatey notes and arrow-straight grain patterns. This, combined with a warm Adirondack Spruce top and Walker's SJ curves, gives the player a sensation of royalty: the voice is big and brash, and the guitar can handle any style of music with ease. Talk about headroom--this guitar fills the church to the rafters with an energetic and articulate voice! This guitar is a cold drink on a hot day to flatpickers, or a shot of good whiskey for a blues fingerstylist with its vigor and snap. Seriously, folks, just one look at the woods here, and you'll be hooked. Once you play it, we offer complimentary tissues, should you feel a tear streaking down your cheek. This Walker is a furnace of powerful tones, and it won't be here long; get a piece of this fire before we pass the torch!

2003 Walker Guitars SJ -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"I know both Kim and Jerre, and can attest to the greatness of each. If it weren't for Jerre in the first place, who knows what would have happened to Guild? And of course I love Kim's work--his name is synonymous with perfection. This SJ is one of those guitars that makes other guitars look like toys in comparison." - Paul Heumiller

"The classic vintage Gibson vibe in a high end, luthier-built guitar by one the most respected builders out there. Very collectible, indeed." - Al Petteway
