By Play Guitar!
(Fall 2004) Play Guitar! and Walden Guitars have teamed up to give you the opportunity to win either the SupraNatura 3000 or the Natura 500.
Prize: Supra Natura 3000
The definition of understated elegance
The exacting lutherie standards of world-class handmade guitars were applied to create the all-solid-wood, flame maple-bound, SupraNatura 3000. Its graphite-reinforced thin neck and "prewar" scalloped, X-braced body are lacquered before being joined by a bolt-on neck joint. Constructed of our highest quality tonewoods, the solid-Sitka soundboard G3000 features thoughtful touches like an unmarked ebony fingerboard, Walden-facetted ebony bridge, and tapered headstock. Appointments like the wood and abalone rosette, wood binding and purfling, ebony bridge, and end pins with abalone dots are pleasing without being ostentatious. For more on the G3000, click here.
Second Prize: Natura
500 Six-string simplicity
The essence of what a great guitar should be, the 500 series guitar is the most affordable entry into the Natura line. Bookmatched, quartersawn soundboards from the Pacific Northwest provide the richness and tone found only in a solid top. The Natura 500 is tastefully detailed with black binding, an inlaid two-ring rosette, a pearl Walden Logo, and chrome die-cast tuners. For more information on this G570 model, click here.
Entries are due by May 31, 2005 and can be found in the Fall 2004 issue of Play Guitar!
