WA-40 Slideshow

Solid walnut has an amazing midrange sound with outstanding clear highs and a woody low end
that emerges with more warmth and depth as the guitar is played over time. Very little overtone
response, walnut offers tone similar to mahogany, with remarkable balance across the frequency
spectrum. The low-end is not as low as Mahogany which makes it great for singing with.  
To give a little more low-end presence we couple the WA-40 with Adirondack Spruce which enhances
it’s low-end response.  Using our X-bracing shifted for our auditorium size guitars in Walnut
are something special. WA-40 was the start of the Auditorium Revolution at Gruene.  

Available with Engelman Spruce top.  
The normal in stock tops are Sitka. Please check with us first because there may just be a Engelmann
spruce top in stock.  Gloss is the standard build, however Matte finish is a option. Multiple Options
are available for WA-40.
