Walden Guitar Introduces Its New 800 Series
Walden guitars debuted their new 800 series of acoustic guitars last week at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, Tennessee.
The new 800 Series is designed for the player that favors boutique-style guitars. This new series features all solid-wood construction, South Indian rosewood back and sides, and includes models featuring Engelmann Spruce, Sitka Spruce, or Western Red Cedar tops.
Other features include mahogany necks and solid rosewood fingerboards, 1 11/16-inch nut width, chrome tuners with black buttons, rosewood bridges, scalloped-X bracing, two-way adjustable truss rods, Fossalite nut and saddle, satin nitrocellulose laquer finish, and abalone rosettes
The 800 series also sports Waldenâ€™s dual-rail, glass-fiber reinforced necks (meant to add strength, stability, and harmonic advantages), and B-band T-35 preamps on the cutaway models.
The 800 series offers both Dreadnought and Grand Auditorium body styles to accommodate a variety of playing styles.
â€śWe wanted to give guitarists an instrument that sounds, feels, and looks great, combining boutique features with a price that will be attainable for most players.â€ť says Jonathan Lee, chief designer at Walden Guitars.
The D810 and G830 have a MAP of $599, while the cutaway electric versions, D810CE and G800CE, will MAP at $749.
