Model

Walker Guitar Models are made up of a Style (Style A Special) + Size + Options.

Guitars are priced by Style + Options.

In this way I can offer hundreds of possible Models in a straightforward framework. Options aside, 4 Styles + 6 Sizes starts with 24 possible models. In reality, each of my guitars is a unique instrument.

Though this may seem like “too many choices” using my order guideline sheet makes it pretty straightforward decision making.

Style A Sp

The Style A Special guitars are more ornate with more involved purflings and inlay than those of the Style B guitars.

The “Special” guitars in my naming scheme simply means that these guitars use a wood binding package. The “Deluxe” guitars use an ivoroid binding scheme.

This Style is a great framework to add further options and custom features.
