The Parlor, a small guitar with big sound!
response to our customers desire for a smaller instrument with the
voice of a larger guitar, James Goodall has introduced two new elegant
designs which comprise the Parlor series. The reception of the Parlor
series at the 1999 Summer Nashville NAMM (National Association of Music
Merchants) show was phenomenal.
Everyone was amazed at the fullness and richness of tone as well as their punchy clarity.
Some even thought they were as loud as a Dreadnought bodied guitar.
Parlor series guitar has a shorter 25" scale length. It has a scaled
down bridge, peghead and sound hole. It is available in a 12 or 14 fret
neck joint with a non slotted peghead or an optional 12 fret neck joint
with slotted peghead* and bronze patina Waverly tuners. The 12 fret
model has a sweet, round and responsive voice similiar in tone to a
classical guitar. The 14 fret model has a little more punch and clarity
in the mid range, very similiar to our Grand Concert series instrument.
The Parlor series is available with all the same fine options and wood
choices as in all Goodall guitars.
*The slotted peghead model has a neck width at the nut of 1 7/8"
(1 13/16" is optional).
