An original take on the classic T-style guitar. The guitar was hand crafted by Scott Walker in Santa Cruz, CA.
From Walker Guitars
The Jimson is based on an American icon, meant to drop right in your lap or on your shoulder. The Body is resonant Sugar Pine similar to the ones being created back in the day. After years of winding T style pickups, Scott has formulated his own.
The new Jimson model features hand wound pickups by Scott. With lots of research and development focussing on the “T” style pickups, Scott has cracked the code for an exceptionally clear, full and articulate set of pickups. These feature Alnico 3 magnets, 42 Awg wire, and shellac potting to give just the right amount of liveliness. The neck pickup wire is coated with Plain enamel coating to help accentuate the higher frequencies and the bridge with a heavy formvar to add a little compression and tightness to the sounds. The Alnico 3 magnets, being weaker than the Alnico 5, help with sustain and clarity, making a really usable warm but chimy neck position.Featuring a hand engraved neck pickup cover and over 5 varieties of Italian Celluloid Tortoise to select from for the pick guard.
