"Parlour" guitar

Scale 630mm,
12 frets to the body

  • Closely based on Martin 1/18 produced from 1896 to 1926

  • Probably originally intended to be strung with gut strings, but nowadays we use light phosphor bronze sets

  • Due to the low tension, no truss rod is installed.

  • This small bodied instrument is ideal for solo work including blues and ragtime.
