First two parlor guitars strung up & ready to play!

The first two parlor (AKA single-oh) guitars are strung up & ready to play! The Sitka spruce/Honduras mahogany one has a warm, round sound with a huge amount of presence for a small-bodied instrument. The Anderson Valley (California) redwood/Honduras rosewood one has big bass, punchy treble, and a massive voice. These beauties haven’t been strung up for long and already are developing complex, mature voices.

The spruce/mahogany guitar is for sale! $3,500 – includes case but not CA sales tax or shipping. Drop by the shop/showroom to try these beauties out, or contact David.
