Just in on consignment from a regular customer and boutique custom guitar aficionado. This instrument is stunning in every way! If you have an eye for detail you will certainly appreciate the construction details and cosmetic nuances of this boutique electric guitar. Like all our used / vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get. Cosmetically this instrument is immaculate- Unless you are looking at it under a microscope, I think you will be hard pressed to find any significant evidence of use. It appears to have been lovingly cared for an appreciated. No serious dings, dents wear, repairs, issues whatsoever. It’s as clean as any guitar with factory original distressed / aged hardware can be.
This description is from Scott Walker’s website- To the best of my knowledge it should be accurate to this guitar, but as I did not order it new that is just my assumption. 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 focusing 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 for a very usable, warm but chime-y neck position. Featuring a hand engraved neck pickup cover and Italian Celluloid Tortoise pickguard.
