This is Walter Trout's custom hand-made Signature Delaney "Austin"
model. It has a swamp ash body in vintage white and topped with clear
gloss nitro-cellulose lacquer using no fillers. We believe that several light
coats of lacquer and no grain fillers allows the wood to breathe and vibrate
and doesn't mask the natural tone of the wood. This also lets you to still
feel the wood grain in the body and allows it to "relic" naturally.
The guitar also has a figured Maple neck with special neck radius specs
that came from Walter's favorite original guitar. It has Dunlop 6100 frets or
as we like to call them "Railroad Ties."
Walter's signature is engraved on the oversized headstock which has
Kluson "Revolution" Series tuners. An ergonomic neck heel is incorporated
for comfort and to easily reach the upper frets.
This guitar has Delaney "Denali" single coil pickups with a master volume,
tone for the neck and middle pickups, and a separate tone for the bridge
pickup as well as a 5-way blade switch. The strings feed through a brass
tone block into a sculpted hardtail bridge.
