The Lolo Creek model is reminiscent of guitars from the 1930’s and early 1940’s.
It is a shallow bodied guitar with a big sound.
John Walker is one of the finest luthiers in USA who builds all his guitars completely by hand in his small workshop in Montana. Having gained decades of experience working for Gibson USA and retiring as their exclusive luthier, it is no wonder that John is able to create such professional guitars of exquisite detail.
This guitar is made with 12 frets to the body and a slightly wider string spacing to allow the blues player and or finger picker to really get to work creating wonderful music.
