Our Mantra

Continuous improvement is our objective, customer satisfaction our goal, and to build a fine quality instrument that you love to play, our target.

The Product

Currently we are hand building fine flat top acoustic guitars. I have developed a couple of models that span a wide array of player's preferences. The links on the far left side of the page will take you to the details/specifications for each guitar model as well as detailed photos.

Model Names

The guitar models are named after rivers and creeks that I have either fished, swam in or visited over the years. Check out details on the actual waterways under "Miscellany", subtitle "Rivers/Creeks".

The Label

The oval label located inside of my guitars is a picture painted by my grandfather, Stanley H. Walker. He was a pastel artist and this particular picture is named "Natures Wonderland", painted by him in the 1920's. Hope you enjoy it!.


We are located in beautiful western Montana, approximately eight (8) miles south of Alberton. We have some photos of the shop located within the Shop Tour page of our website.


We are a two person, one dog operation here at John Walker Guitars.

Deb supports John through the business side of the operation, whether it is ordering material or assuring your needs and requirements are resolved in a timely manner. River, the shop dog assists in the greeting of visitors.
