Description

We are lucky to have another amazing guitar to adorn our walls today: a 2007 0000 from Walter Lipton himself! This is the sort of guitar which just begs to be played. First, you are drawn to the gorgeous and interesting Herringbone trim across the European Spruce top and the rosette in alternating bands of black, green, red, and white, Then, when you turn the guitar around, you'll want to be careful not to let your jaw drop all the way to instrument when you see just how perfectly straight-grained the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides are. Really, take a ruler to those lines; the ruler will look out of square. Add to that a pyramid-style bridge and MOP snowflakes inlaid across the Ebony fretboard, and you've got a stunning example of master craftsmanship in your hands. Now: it's the tone where this guitar really gets to shine. The setup is glossy smooth and perfect for a wide range of applications, but Traditional or Blues arrangements with a thumbpick sound, in particular, reverent. The large body offers powerful projection and sustain, and if you let the harmonics ring in the upper register, you'll find some sweet overtones that hang in the air for days. When the Brazilian Rosewood and the European Spruce are voiced this well, the guitar exhibits a strong and complex tonality--and Lipton has certainly achieved just that. This is the sort of guitar which plays through you, rather than away from you.

Walter has a great sense of tone and an eye for beautiful, sharp, vintage aesthetics. This guitar showcases both magnificiently. I found it difficult to pull myself away from this one; it's perfect for my kind of old school Blues.
 
I'm very impressed with this guitar and would love to play more of his guitars in the future. It has a good solid sound and lots of headroom.
