Description

Kim Walker is a heavy hitter we get incredibly excited about around the Dream Guitars shop. Kim is known for his vintage style guitars with an incredible pre war tone. Kim is a living legend in the Lutherie community, his guitars are as close to perfect as any human is likely to get. This 000 is made with premium East Indian Rosewood and one of the finest sets of Sitka Spruce we have encountered to date. We stopped counting grain lines when we were 200 years in and had gone less than 3.5" across the top. The silking in this top is practically luminescent, shimmering uniformly across the board. Every detail on this piece is flawlessly executed and Kim even mixes his own varnish recipe for some of the finest finish you'll ever see on a guitar... ever.

While looks and reputation are important, it's truly the voice of this thing that sets it apart from the rest and just might shatter your preconceptions of what a good guitar is. It has a warmth and brilliance to it that fascinates and draws you into its sound. It is exceptionally rare to find such a balanced tone, one where every string has a full bodied voice. It's a pleasure to listen to, even when plucking a single note and just letting it ring. But when you play the strings together, this Walker sounds heavenly, with a ringing chorus of tone that emanates from the sound hole whenever you strike a chord. This is a guitar from one of the big boys, and it lives up to its reputation.

Kim is a wizard and he put magic into this guitar. Everything about it perfect, from the glow of the finish to that rich tone. This here is why we call the store Dream Guitars.
 
This is one of the best sounding 000 slothead guitars I've played. It plays great and it responds quickly and powerfully. Great guitar.
