The Petros Walnut Creek (formerly our Ultra-Light) is a wonderfully light weight guitar with a thunderous sound. It is made from gorgeous curly Claro Walnut with a master grade Redwood top and a Butternut neck. Our arched soundboard, meticulously tuned braces and graduation creates a top that produces full bass fundamentals while simultaneously enabling ringing trebles and lush overtones. This guitar will growl or sing softly. It will give you whatever you ask of it.
The Walnut Creek guitars start at $9800 which includes a sound port, Amboyna Burl purfling and rosette trimmed with “Dragon Skin” DichroLam, all wood binding, Purflex® engraved position markers, ebony finger board and bridge and bone nut and fully compensated saddle. The 18:1 Gotoh tuners have engraved amber or wood buttons for even more weight reduction. Additional customizations shown.
This is one of my absolute favorite wood combinations of all time. Beautiful, renewable, curly Claro Walnut and old growth, naturally fallen Redwood from our own West coast along with Eastern Butternut for a neck makes these instruments the lightest and most resonant guitars on the planet. When I say light, I mean noticeably light! These are a joy to hold and play. —Bruce
