Excellent, only a few faint marks on top. Steven recently went over the guitar and replaced the fingerboard and dialed in the setup; plays like new!

Description

We relish classicals that capture our attention from the first pluck, and this 2003 Concert Classical from Steven Walter did just that. Clarity, energy, and responsiveness characterize this beautiful example of Steven’s work, here in Madagascar Rosewood and European Spruce. The elevated fingerboard in the style of Thomas Humphrey’s Millenium Classical helps upper fret access, and adds to the sheer resonance and projection of the Euro Spruce top. A single side dot at the seventh fret is a modern concession that we find incredibly helpful. The neck has a decently full D shape that’s easy on the hands, and playability is superb. Hauser-style Rodgers tuners are a wonder to look at, and even more so to tune, and the entire guitar is French Polished for maximum resonance.
This is a cherished Walter Classical that’s been taken care of over the past 15 years, and it’s definitely more than ready to keep at it!

We know Steven Walter well here at the shop, as he used to come visit quite a bit when he lived nearby. This guitar is a great example of his work, inspired by the Humphrey Millennium model with a raised fingerboard to preload the top tension and fire out the notes across the room. Powerful, beautiful, complete.
