Parlour acoustic guitars date from as far back as the 1800’s and are still popular today having become trendy with blues and folk musicians.
The Vintage V880 Acoustic Parlour combines the sound and style of an original vintage parlour with modern craftsmanship and playability, without the problems that can arise within instruments over 100 years old.
Despite the smaller body dimensions, this vibrant acoustic has size-defying volume with trumpet-like projection and a tonewood combination that delivers exceptional resonance and natural sustain.
For its natural clarity, sparkle and nuance, solid cedar has been specifically chosen for the soundboard, perfect for fingerpicking, intricate chord shapes and solo notes. This clean, rich and well balance tone, is complete with the petite body constructed from high quality mahogany, adding natural warmth to the sonic mix.
An open headstock is in-keeping with tradition where smooth, open-geared, amber button machine heads ensure stable tuning, while a super-smooth Eastern mahogany neck, bound fingerboard and compensated saddle, certify this superb stunning parlour guitar a joy to perform with.
As a small bodied guitar the Vintage V880 Acoustic Parlour, also doubles as the perfect travelling companion, or maybe just sat on the front porch.
With fine touches that include golden herringbone/maple body binding and intricate multi-ply black/white/gold herringbone rosette inlay, the Vintage V880 Acoustic Parlour is indeed striking on the eye.
