Collings Parlor 2H T Traditional Series 12-fret Acoustic Guitar

 

Inspired by some of the earliest steel-string guitar designs, the diminutive Parlor Series provides exceptional balance and responsiveness. The Parlour 2H T featuers a select sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, hot hide glue construction and Collings' Traditional series finish - extra thin Nitrocellulose finish, allowing the natural qualities of the wood to shine.

About the Collings Parlor:

The long and narrow body shape of the new Collings Parlor is inspired by some of the earliest steel string guitar designs that form the roots of the modern acoustic guitar family tree. First popularized in the late 19th century, this diminutive guitar has often been overlooked in favor of its larger and louder descendants, but the parlor body style is once again finding its way into the hands of players who appreciate its exceptional tonal balance and responsiveness, as well as its portability and comfortable feel. Named for what we now call the "living room", this guitar comes from an era when friends would gather at home to make music before an evening's entertainment could be readily broadcast, televised or streamed. While it may at first glance seem to be a relic of the past, today with music often being recorded in the living rooms of home studios, streamed from house concerts, and broadcast from Tiny Desks, perhaps this charismatic and beautiful sounding little guitar has once again found its moment to shine. Crafted with our Traditional series appointments, features, and voicing techniques, the Collings Parlor has a full bodied voice and projection that belies its small size. Each Collings Parlor guitar includes a handmade case designed and built in the Collings shop.
