Hardware machined in House – Dream to Reality Part 2

scottBlog & News%s Comments

 Things here at the shop have taken a major evolution this last year, and I’d like to explain a little about the new hardware.

Over the years, building custom unique guitars has unveiled many different opportunities and creative challenges. This year the focus has been hardware. Making it in house has been challenging but I couldn’t be happier with the way things have turned out. Countless hours have been spent making prototypes and designs, getting things just right.  Id like to list the features of each piece here as a reference for people interested my guitars.

Options are polished Aluminum (6061) or polished Brass (360). These are lightly sealed to slow down oxidation, and allow a natural patina to burnish in.

At this time these pieces will only be available on Scott Walker Guitars.  Models include The Special, The Santa Cruz and The Attrezzo.
