2017 Collings Parlor 1 Traditional Acoustic Guitar Used
The Collings Parlor model was inspired by the guitars from the 1890s but unlike those venerable instruments, it’s been braced to take steel strings rather than gut strings. It is barely 12 inches wide across the lower bout and the scale length is a comfy 24 7/16 inches. This may be a tiny guitar by modern standards, but it produces more sound than you might expect from such a diminutive package. They are excellent fingerpicking guitars, they record very well and they are comfortable to play. This particular example has a Sitka spruce top and Honduran mahogany back and sides, a combination that produces a clear, well-balanced tone. It’s in excellent structural and cosmetic condition. Include its original Collings-built hardshell case.
