Kyle's Walnut Wonder

Kyle has been watching my career as a guitar builder since I started, and he loved the idea of owning something built with a family history. His time finally came, and he knew exactly what wood he wanted his gem to be built from.  His family is from Missouri, and his dad happened to have tons of board feet of walnut that was cut from his grandfather's property about 30 years ago.  Since walnut is such a heavy wood, we knew we'd have to implement some weight reduction by chambering the body extensively.  Kyle and I worked together to come up with a build list, and after several long months, his Walnut Wonder was born.

Here are the specs:

  • 25.5" scale
  • Chambered black walnut body with F hole
  • Hand-made maple binding
  • Hand-carved maple/walnut neck with pao ferro fretboard
  • Bigsby B50
  • Hand-wound Firebird style pickups
  • Custom pickup surrounds
  • Gotoh tuners
  • Bone nut
  • Fretboard inlay and markers fashioned from antique piano keys
  • TOM style bridge
  • CTS pots
  • Switchcraft switch and jack
  • Tinted shellac and lacquer finish
