Your music reflects your attitude and how you live your life. So does
your guitar. Walden is an expression of the choices you make, choices
that matter and make a difference. Playing a Walden says that you
want more than just a great instrument. You also want a guitar that is
built in a responsible and ethical way.
Why choose Walden Guitars? It comes down to the details. How it was
made. Who made it. Where the materials came from. Features and
specifications you don't notice immediately because they are just right.
The way your guitar looks and sounds — how it effortlessly responds to
your touch — like a great guitar should.
Responsibility. We do not outsource our manufacturing and our guitar
shop is the only one in Asia with a certified 100% Pure Chain-of-Custody.
Walden Guitars is committed to developing legal sourcing for all our
materials and supports the management of the world’s forests.
Beauty is in the details you see. High-grade soundboards, Mahogany
necks, and Indian Rosewood bridges and fingerboards guarantee rich,
dynamic sounding guitars that improve the more you play. All bodies
and necks are fully bound and incorporate the understated elegance of
tasteful trim designs.
Walden Guitars is the vision of American Luthier Jonathan Lee who learned his trade while
partnered with Master Luthier Charles Fox. Together they built hundreds of handmade guitars
in their small shop in Sonoma Country, California. Ten years later, Jonathan now leads a group
of skilled builders in the small town of Lilan, Northern China, incorporating the standards
established by generations of guitar makers and the precision of contemporary tools and
technology.
The results: great sounding, high quality, mid-priced instruments you will be proud to call your
own for a lifetime.
Quality is in the details you don't see. Walden Natura and SupraNatura
line guitars are coated with Nitrocellulose lacquer which opens up more
and more as it cures and hardens, allowing your already great sounding
guitar to sound better and better. Madera and Concorda line guitars
feature a Polyester/Polyurethane high gloss finish, offering another
great choice for Walden players. We build with traditional Lutherie
woods and allow them to cure, dry and stabilize before transforming
them into a Walden guitar in a humidity controlled environment. Inside
each steel string instrument we incorporate a scalloped-X sprucebraced soundboard, bolt-on neck, and a 2-way adjustable truss rod.
Fine instruments are a lifetime investment and our guitars will make
this musical journey with you. In the following pages you will discover
the Walden Madera, SupraNatura, Natura, Standard, and Concorda lines
of guitars. We trust these pictures and descriptions will inspire you
to go and play a Walden guitar because the sound of a great guitar is
something that is beyond words. We hope you will allow Walden Guitars
the opportunity to appeal to your heart and touch your soul.

BODY SHAPES
Choosing a Walden guitar begins with the essential step of discovering the best body shape for you. Every guitar has
its own unique voice which is a product of choosing the right body shape, as much as the right wood configuration.
As your musical partner, your guitar must feel good in your hands and rest comfortably in your lap, while providing
all the complexity, volume and nuance you would expect from a world class instrument.

Walden's "O" body OM guitar is
reminiscent of the pre-war guitar for
which it is named. Smaller than our "G"
body shape, the O body is popular among
finger-stylists and female players. A
shallower side depth makes it easier to
play and contributes to its focused voice,
great for a studio "tracking" instrument.

Walden's Grand Auditorium body has a
slightly wider lower bout than our traditional
Dreadnought and a narrower waist and

with ample bass balanced by clear and
brilliant trebles while the rounded contours
are visually pleasing and comfortable in
your arms.
The Stage body shape is
based on the Walden Grand
Auditorium cutaway body
with a reduced side depth
of 3 ½". This creates a thinbody acoustic-electric that
is particularly suited to
live playing. The "S" has a
clear and precise acoustic
voice, even when played
unplugged.

The traditional classical guitar
body originated in the early
1800s. By the 1920s, Spanishbased designs emerged as the
standard for the classical guitar.
The Walden "N" remains true
to its heritage and delivers a
voice that has a mellow, singing
quality with good bass presence.

The "T" body shape is a ⅞ sized
guitar with a 24.2" scale length.
The short scale contributes to
its easy playability. Similar to
a parlor guitar with a slightly
wider lower bout, the T is braced
appropriately for its shape and
produces surprising volume. It
has a focused voice, making it
particularly pleasing as a sololead instrument.
The magic of great tone is produced by the woods used in building great guitars. Each piece of wood
contributes its own distinctiveness to the voice of your instrument. Proper seasoning is an absolute necessity
when building a world class instrument. We use only quarter sawn, bookmatched woods imported from around
the world. Tonewoods are seasoned and air dried before entering our kilns. Kiln dried woods then undergo our
high-frequency drying process, insuring the woods' stability. Finally, it will equalize in humidity and temperature
control rooms before being transformed into a Walden Guitar.

The Dreadnought body design
dates back to the early 1900s. This
grandfather of modern guitar body
shapes is respectfully represented
by the Walden Dreadnought. It

from this body shape.

genuinely want their child to learn

unique voice, elegant design, and
remarkable tone.
Sitka Spruce
Engelmann Spruce
Western Red Cedar
(Picea sitchensis)
(Picea engelmannii)
(Thuja plicata)
North American solid Sitka Spruce
produces a loud and balanced
voice with a strong fundamental.
Sitka tops are sought after by
players with a strong attack.
North American solid Engelmann
Spruce is a beautiful, rich whitish
soundboard wood. With the volume
and crispness inherent to all spruces,
Engelmann adds its brilliant complex
overtone structure.
The voice of Western Red Cedar
is characterized by dark, rich
and smooth tonality. Solid Cedar
top guitars are favored by
fingerstylists and musicians with a
lighter touch.
Central American Mahogany
African Mahogany
Sapele Mahogany
(Swientenia macrophylla)
(Khaya ivorensis)
(Entandrophragma cylindricum)
One of the most traditional woods
used for acoustic guitar necks,
sides and backs, illegal logging
and unsustainable export levels
are threatening to render big-leaf
mahogany commercially extinct in
the near future.
Also known as Khaya Mahogany, its
interlocking grain contributes to
excellent strength and stability.
African Mahogany is an excellent
choice for neck material.
Sapele Mahogany has bright striped
grain and is clear and responsive.
Both beautiful and brilliant, Sapele
is an excellent tonewood for back
and sides.
Ebony
Indian Rosewood
Katalox
(Diospyros ebenum)
(Dalbergia latifolia)
(Swartzia cubensis)
Ebony is the traditional fingerboard
material found on violins, classical
guitars, and high-end steel string
instrument due to its hardness,
stiffness, and resistance to wear.
Ebony is a very dark wood, often
black, but sometimes dark brown.
One of the world's most prized
guitar woods for back and sides,
Indian Rosewood is visually
gorgeous. Sonically, Indian Rosewood
is complex, warm and deep.
Katalox, sometimes called Mexican
Royal Ebony, is native to Central
America. It compares well to Ebony
and is stronger than Teak or Hard
maple. It is one of the few available
fingerboard woods responsibly
harvested in FSC certified forests.

Grand Auditorium
All Walden 1000-4000 Series guitars feature a modern thin-profile
neck. This is reinforced with two rails of Carbon Graphite, a
feature unique to Walden among comparably priced instruments,
which increases stability and adds harmonic content. Walden
500-700 Series guitars incorporate two rails of “Glass-fiber”
resulting in similar strength, stability and harmonic advantages.

Satin Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
Nitrocellulose lacquer is made from plant fiber. Because it can vibrate along with the
moving soundboard, it has been the finish material of choice among the best luthiers since
the late 1800s. A satin finish allows for the application of a thin coat thereby translating
more energy into tone. A satin finish is also smoother than a glossy finish which can
sometimes feel sticky, allowing the musician to play with greater ease and speed.

“Pre-war” Scalloped-X Soundboard Design
Walden steel-string guitars incorporate the “Pre-War” scalloped spruce X bracing on their
soundboards based on the great guitars of the pre-World War II era. The scalloped-X brace
and scalloped tone bars provide instruments with good clarity and openness of voice, while
also stabilizing the soundboard against the pull of the strings.
Two-way Adjustable Truss Rod
All Walden guitars incorporate a 2-way adjustable truss rod that allows for
the precise adjustment of the guitar's setup in response to seasonal changes.
Furthermore, a player can increase or decrease fingerboard relief to exactly suit his
or her personal playing style.

SERIES HIGHLIGHTS
Bolt-on Neck Joint
The bolt-on neck joint design has no unintended internal stress, resulting in increased
stability, more resonance, and easier repair. The Walden neck joint is a tried-and-true
method that involves joining a guitar neck and body using threaded-inserts in the heel
and KD bolts through the neck-block.

saddles produced by Graph Tech, makers of the precision materials
Tusq and Nubone. This synthetic material is used on Walden 300
through 700 series instruments. Approximating the tonality of vintage
bone, Fossalite increases the warmth and depth of the instrument’s
harmonics and tone as well as contributing pristine highs and mids.

Madera
Forest friendly
You’re Part of the Solution
Ecologically friendly, responsible
acoustic guitars made of woods
from well managed forests are
rare. Certified “responsible”
instruments made by ethically run
Mainland China factories are even
rarer. With Walden’s Madera Line,
guitarists can make purchasing
decisions that both serve your
musical aspirations and take part
in reducing the over consumption
of world resources.
The all-solid wood Madera line
is built with certified FSC-100%
traditional guitar tonewoods
such as certified FSC-100% solid
Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis), certified FSC-100% solid Western Red
cedar (Thuja plicata), and certified FSC-100% solid Central American
“genuine” mahogany (Swientenia Macrophylla). With an FSC Chain-ofCustody (COC) certification, all woods on the Madera are tracked from
forest to finished instrument thereby guaranteeing its responsible
origins. These woods are stiff and sawn perfectly on-quarter,
maximizing tonality, voice and stability. We permit visual character
inherent to wood such as mild bear claw and winter growth lines.
Built at the Walden Guitars
factory, Versen Musical
Instrument Co., LTD,
FSC-COC certifiction
# SGSHK-COC-006824
Obtaining products from organizations with COC certification
and building with FSC-100% materials is the only way you can
trust that the instrument is genuinely constructed of woods from
responsible sources. FSC, the Forest Stewardship Council, is the
leading independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization
established to promote the responsible management of the world’s
forests.
Walden chose the name Madera for its association with the Spanish
word for “wood.” Guitars in this line can be easily recognized by a
distinctive pearl headstock embellishment shaped like the Chinese
character “ 木 ” for wood.

Madera 4000
The Walden Madera line is built with
traditional guitar tonewoods. The
difference is that these tonewoods are
certified FSC-100%, meaning they all
originate from well managed forests.
Certified North American Sitka spruce
or Western Red cedar soundboards with
Central American Mahogany back, sides,
and necks result in instruments with
the voice you expect, without the guilt
of clear-cutting rainforests. FSC-100%
certified South American Katalox is also
known as Mexican Ebony and is used
for the fingerboard, bridge and headplate. All Madera steel-string instruments
are recognizable by the tasteful “wood
character” pearl embellishment below the
pearl Walden headstock logo, an abalone
two-ring rosette, and faux-tortoise shell
binding. The all-solid Grand Auditorium
CG4070E-CERT, with a wider 1¾” wide
bone nut and a deep, rich voice, it is
the fingerstylist’s choice. The all-solid
Dreadnought CD4040E-CERT is a “classic”
with its loud volume and great response.
Both are available with Walden’s Tobacco
Burst finish. The all solid Mahogany G &
D 4041E-CERT models have a clarity that
make them especially popular for blues
pickers.

“Green Guitarist’s Dream”
“With its FSC 100% certified tonewoods, the CD4040-CERT is perfect for the thoughtfully green guitarist. It’s
also a bargain as an all-solid-wood guitar with good looks and a robust sound, suitable for a variety of styles.
And with its versatile voice, the CD4040E-CERT would also make a great go-to acoustic for any recording buff.”
Acoustic Guitar magazine, USA
September 2010
“Brown Sugar”
“The Madera experience is enhanced by its intonation and setup, which offered marginal relief in the neck with
bluegrass-appropriate string height. Walden is justifiably proud of its environmental dedication in the Madera Line.”

As a professional guitarist of 33 years

— the definition of "understated elegance." Whether you choose a
G3000 or the G3030CE/CEQ you will be rewarded by the depth and
balance of a handmade instrument. The G3030CE features Fishman

"I love my Walden 3030CEQ! Played side by side against the high dollar guitars, the Walden delivers excellent bass, great mids
and a warm crystalline high end that is every bit the sonic equivalent of the expensive guitars. The playability exceeds that of the
more expensive models! I haven’t been able to put this thing down and it has really inspired me to spend more time playing again."
Chris Hinson
SupraNatura G3030CEQ Owner
SupraNatura 1000
Full harmonic content and complexity originates from building an instrument of all solid
tonewoods. These Mahogany back and side guitars feature the distinction of Rosewood
binding, all-wood trim, and a 2-ring rosette comprised of inlaid strips of Mahogany and
Maple. Bridge and endpins are solid rosewood. Nut and saddle are bone. The simple
elegance of these designs compliments the rich complexity of the guitar's voice.
These solid top, solid back guitars are the entry to the SupraNatura line. The
complex voice originates from a "pre-war" scalloped-X braced soundboard, bone
nut and saddle, and graphite reinforced neck. With features usually found on
much higher priced instruments such as all-wood trim and rosette and a lacquer
finish, SupraNaturas are an exceptional value.

"I have played fingerstyle guitar for 25 to 30 years. I recently bought a G2070 and feel blessed. It is difficult for me to imagine that any
other guitar at any price could be significantly better in aesthetics, playability, or sound. It’s like a handmade custom instrument. This
thing is as clear as a bell, and set up perfectly. Thanks a million for making these guitars available at such a great price."
Wayne Walden

"This is a top shelf guitar in so many respects, and its available to folks in a way most guitars of this caliber

It's 9 a.m. at the biggest pub in Estonia, in the biggest summer resort in the country, it's raining, the room is filled with harmonicas
and lederhosen, we've been driving since 6 o'clock and the coffee machine is broken.
Our harmonica festival shows aren't scheduled to start before the evening but our harpist has insisted on entering the competition;
Indrek's jittery and I'm sleepy, he walks away with Silver. A fellow musician points to my T550 and goes: "The bass lines were prerecorded, right?" "Nah, just me and my Walden... "
Dennis, the American whom we're to back that evening, is still recovering from a late night, so we're off for pancakes in the rain.
Ten hours later Dennis and I are on the concert hall stage with my partner Martin, winging it in front of TV cameras and trying to
look as worried as the black-tie audience. "I learned a new song tonight," Dennis brags backstage. "We learned two," I shoot back.
"Well, I'll have two more for you tomorrow," he grins. A grey-haired gentleman in an impeccably white suit walks up: "Thank you
very much! My wife insisted that I tell you: your playing on that slow blues was so beautiful, it brought tears to our eyes."
It's Friday night and there're five more shows to do with Indrek and Dennis. On Sunday Steve's flying in from London and we hit the
road.
As long as they fix that coffee machine...

"I've owned other guitars in the past and tried many guitars before making my most recent purchase and have
to say that I'm really impressed by the playability, sound and value of your guitars. Thanks for making such a

Natura 500
The graceful execution of the Natura 600 series guitars compliments a
willingness to perform. High-grade scalloped-X braced solid top guitars are
fully bound in white from head-to-toe and adorned with a 2-ring inlaid abalone
rosette and gold tuning machines. Laminated side and back material incorporate
a center of genuine Mahogany, ensuring tonal exellence.The rich combination of
Western Cedar and Rosewood or the punch of Sitka Spruce joined with Rosewood
are available in our G and D Body. With any of these guitars we guarantee you an
enchanting voice awaits.
Distilled to 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. 500 series guitars
are tastefully detailed with black binding, an inlaid 2-ring rosette, a pearl Walden logo, and
chrome die-cast tuners. Choose the Spruce/Mahogany 550 for brightness and punch and the
Cedar/Mahogany 570 offers depth and richness.

"What a beautiful guitar! The tone and action are perfect for me. It's even caused me to venture out of the

"The O550 has an 'air' or 'lightness' to the tone and that quick response off the soundboard that
I've personally come to really like about Waldens. It has a OM type sound which is comparable
to the OM style guitars that are in the $1400-2000 price range."
Michael Mucklow, Walden Artist
O550 Owner
I just bought a G570, and I’m astounded by the amount of quality and tone packed into such an
inexpensive package. I’ve owned a LOT of nice guitars over 25 years, some as much as 5 times
the price of the G570, and this one can hold its own against any of them. Thanks Walden!

The world is a blank canvas.
Life is a painting.
I don't want a pencil to rehearse.
I don't want an apron to wear.
I want a Star Shaped Stencil and
a palette of the craziest colours
you can find :)

The CG3030CETB-PRO is much like
the SupraNatura G3030CEQ in that
it is a solid cedar soundboard,
solid rosewood back and side
instrument with a bolt-on,
graphite reinforced neck, figured
maple trim and abalone rosette.
This Concorda line instrument
is a gloss finish guitar and is
built with LR Baggs Stage Pro
Anthem electronics with Tru•Mic
technology and tuner in a side
mounted system with a Baggs

Concorda 600
Handmade, all solid Concorda 2000 guitars are close relatives to
their SupraNatura cousins, sharing a handmade bone nut-saddle,
rosewood binding and wood trim, a graphite reinforced neck and the
SupraNatura narrow neck shape. A gloss finish and maple-mahogany
rosette are refinements that complete the alluring Concorda 2000.
The CD2040 mates a Sitka top with mahogany and a standard 1¹¹⁄16
"nut to produce a voice and playability in line with its "workhorse"
lineage. Wide 1¾" neck G and O bodies serve finger-stylists, each
incorporating solid Indian rosewood sides contributing to the breadth
and resonance characteristic of this wood. On the CG2000CEQ, Prefix
Pro electronics made by Fishman ensure the guitar sounds as great
on stage as it does unamplified.
Gloss 600 series Concorda guitars feature higher quality woods and
upgraded detailing such as white binding and a 2-ring inlaid maplemahogany rosette with oil-sealed gold tuning machines. Hand selected
Western Red Cedar or Sitka Spruce soundboards are braced with highgrade scalloped-X spruce to ensure a complex, resonant voice.

“SIMPLICITY, SIMPLICITY, SIMPLICITY!”
“The much feted character exhibited by those earlier instruments springs fully to life with the CG2000CEQ;
it is a guitar that can confidently play whichever role you assign it, and all with a voice that you just want to
keep hearing.”
Australian Guitar magazine
Xmas 2009 / Summer 2010
“The Mahogany neck profile is just fantastic – a shallow C cross section. It is slim enough to be well seated in your hand
for delicate playing and yet substantial enough to give a great pivot for vibrato.”
Acoustic Magazine, UK
December 2009
Concorda 500 begins this solid top line with distinguishing
elements such as its inlaid maple-mahogany rosette, a high
gloss finish, and micro-dot finger board position markers. A
tapered headstock with pearl Walden logo and chrome oil-sealed
tuning machines complete this most affordable of Concorda line
instruments. With Dreadnought, Orchestra, Grand Auditorium and
cutaway-electric models available you are sure to find a Concorda
500 to suit your musical style.

“A Rockin’ Stage Hog!”
“This one’s a winner! Put away your vintage axes! There are more important things on stage than nostalgia. Whoever
carries the attractive Walden CS550CE on stage will be rewarded with a rich sound with lots of harmonics, and also
enjoy the important subtleties for gentle playing. The great Fishman preamp balances any unamplified weaknesses and
really makes this acoustic guitar a real “stage hog.”

STANDARD
Walden's Standard line of gloss finished guitars is the realization of our goal to build
acoustic guitars with exceptional tonewoods, construction quality and features
at prices previously unavailable. The Standard focuses on providing a solid value
without compromise to the musician. Mahogany, known for its stability, is used on all
guitar necks. Beautiful solid Rosewood fingerboards and distinctive Walden Rosewood
bridges grace every Standard guitar. A 2-ring rosette is inlaid into every fully-bound
Standard body.
Standard 351

“I was impressed with my Walden D351! I purchased it because I'm learning to play Blues and wanted a 'voice'
different from my other acoustics. I am also very pleased with the workmanship, attention to detail, and the 'Bluesy
voice'. Unbelievable! If this is the overall quality present at the lower-end of the Walden model/price spectrum, the
high-end models must be outstanding.”

"I traded in another guitar for a brand new D350CEB for my 12 year old son. This guitar, even for being on the entry
level of Walden, is fantastic! He loves it. Hell, I love it! It's very comfortable and easy to play and sounds great....not to
mention it's great looking black gloss finish. Keep up the good work! It amazes me that with this quality and price point
that Waldens aren't more common."

“I play a Walden SupraNatura N2030. It’s just brilliant and so easy to play due to its low string action.
Barré cords can be done without difficulty which is often a decisive factor for beginners, so I can really
recommend purchasing a Walden guitar. Additionally, its value for money is incredible.”

Natura
Like aging a fine wine, the more
you play a Natura, the better it
will sound. Only solid spruce and
cedar soundboards are used on a
Natura guitar because the tone
of a solid top improves as the the
natural wood fibers resonate and
respond to your musical style.
The clarity, brightness and complex harmonic structure of the 700 series classical guitar originates from a solid
wood soundboard paired with a solid wood back. The solid Western Red Cedar soundboard/solid Rosewood back
model produces warmth and breath, whereas the solid Sitka Spruce/solid Mahogany back model is crisp and
bright. Natural aging lacquer ensures that the tone continues to blossom as the solid woods open up. Tasteful
ornamentations like an inlaid wood rosette and mitred trim complete these excellent solid wood classical guitars.

Natura N500
Solid Spruce tonewood is a prized classical guitar soundboard. When mated with Indian Rosewood back and
sides, the resulting N660 rewards the player with beautiful rich tone and a brilliant harmonic overtone structure.
Naturally aging satin lacquer and a Hauser-inspired fan bracing design add richness and depth to the voice of the
N660. In tune with standards set for the traditional classical guitar, the N660 features tasteful ornamentation such
as an inlaid wood rosette, mitred back and side purfling and a rosewood scarfed head-joint veneer.
When you are ready to play a solid top classical guitar, you should start with a Walden Natura 500 series
guitar. Choose a solid Spruce or Western Red Cedar soundboard and you are sure to discover a pleasing voice
for your musical journey. Finished with naturally aging nitrocellulose lacquer, you can expect your great
sounding classical guitar to get better the more and more you play. The 500 series comes bound in black, with a
rosewood bridge, fingerboard and headplate.

"As an employee of Walden’s German distributor, many guitars by several brands go through my hands every day. The great
Walden guitars made it easy to decide to buy a N550CE. I'm from Peru. It is wonderful to play either Peruvian music, Criollo
or even Afro-Peruvian music with my Walden. Now I live in Germany, and whenever I'm playing a jam session with my
Walden and my Peruvian compatriots, we live again in a piece of South America.”
