The Parlor is the first prototype instrument complete in my shop. The design is inspired by my love for early 20th century parlor guitars and even instruments that go back to 17th century baroque guitars. This instrument was designed for the singer songwriter or the rhythm guitarist that doesn’t venture to far up the fret-board (money is in the first 5 frets right?). The steel reinforced neck is set deep at the 12th fret, this provides a lot of support. A thicker fret board adds to that support.
The example on this page is instrument #1 and features a 25.5″ scale, rolling tune-o-matic bridge, Semore Duncan stacked P-90, a push-pull pot, Gotoh tuners, and strap locks.
This model can be customized with a variety of bridge options, hardware, single or double pickups, 24.75 inch scale length, or additional inlays.
