Introducing...The Parlor 14"
June 9, 2009
It sometimes seems like not a week goes by when we don't come up with something new. Usually, it's something we've been itching to make for a long time and have finally gotten around to building.
This new is certainly one of those - we've been looking forward to this one for a while! Behold - the Parlor 14"!
This shape completes our full spectrum of sizes, from the 13" Gryphon to the 17" Bass. It's a comfortable delight to hold, with a very intimate feeling and no right-arm discomfort.
The 25" scale and shallower box emphasize the midrange and really let this guitar project - shades of resonator guitars and even Selmer/"Django" sounds are present, along with a very vocal quality. Note separation and articulation are also outstanding, and the whole range of the guitar is very quick, sensitive, and responsive.
With the addition of the 14" shape, we can now fine-tune every aspect of a custom guitar to target an exact sound and response for any musician's needs - from the delicate fingerstylist to the heavy-handed rhythm player, and everyone in-between.
