parlour guitar


the parlour guitar emerged in the US in the 19th century and got it’s name because it was played at home – in the parlour.¬†I designed and build my own version, but the characteristics are typical: clear balanced sound, quick response and comfortable to play due to it’s small size.



Here are some sound samples of ¬†several of my parlour guitars, to give you an idea of the versatility of this ‘small-bodied’ guitar:
