Preowned, 2012

This stunning 2012 Walter Becker Model is as clean as they come with barely any signs of wear. Once again Roger creates a superlative electric guitar, which in this case, is tuned into Steely Dan's Walter Becker's discriminating sensibilities. The playability is second to none (of course!... what else would you expect from Sadowsky?) and the sounds are extremely versatile.

"Sadowskys play and sound great, stay in tune, and are very versatile" - Walter Becker

"Becker’s main guitar is his signature Walter Becker model Sadowsky. It features custom Lollar P-90 pickups, spalted maple top and swamp ash body. In the neck/middle and middle/bridge settings, the pickups are wired for hum cancelling output. The tiny three-way switch controls a special preamp that offers separate buffer and gain boosts. The third knob has a push/pull feature that activates the neck/bridge combination with the 5-way switch in either the neck or bridge positions." - Premier Guitar

CRAIG'S POV

Here is another awesome guitar from the always impeccable and skillful Roger Sadowsky. This stunning 2012 Walter Becker Model is as clean as they come with barely any signs of wear. Once again Roger creates a superlative electric guitar, which in this case, is tuned into Steely Dan's Walter Becker's discriminating sensibilities. The playability is second to none (of course!... what else would you expect from Sadowsky?) and the sounds are extremely versatile. Jazz, rock and blues tones bloom effortlessly; nothing seems to be out of its reach. It's really a perfect studio guitar and after playing it a while I can see why Walter chose what he chose in creating this model.

The fretwork is precise and true. The Brazilian fingerboard provides that warm organic feel up and down the neck. And at 6.5 lbs it's a joy to pickup and play. So if you are looking for a beautiful guitar that straddles the strat world and beyond and is creatively crafted with great skill and attention to detail, this Becker should be on your short list.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT SADOWSKY GUITARS
Mention the name Roger Sadowsky to your average guitar player, and you'll likely elicit a "Roger Who?" But that name is spoken in almost reverent tones amongst working musicians. Sadowsky has built this reputation by giving the modern guitarist and bassist what he needs--a no-nonsense, versatile, and reliable electric guitar that performs great and sounds better. Of course, these are claims made by every guitar company in existence; but Sadowsky Guitars is one of the very few companies that can actually back it up. Sadowsky Guitars is based in Long Island City, in Queens New York where founder Roger Sadowsky built the business from the ground up in 1979, after 7 years of guitar luthier training. Today, the Sadowsky company has around 10 employees and caters to guitarists such as; Walter Becker, Jim Hall, Chuck Loeb, Russell Malone, Jimmy Bruno, and Lee Ritenour.
