Why You Need a Parlor (Take 2!)

Parlor guitars seem to be having a moment!

We had lots of fun making our "Why You Need a..." video series earlier this year, where we rounded up our favorite examples of various designs, and listed off the talking points you might need to justify your Guitar Acquistion Syndrome. Since then, it's been interesting to hear the feedback and to see which ones resonate with the most players. The versatile OM leads the pack, while the small yet mighty parlor beat out both the dreadnought and 00 for second place.

In the last few weeks in particular, we've noticed the Parlor vid getting a spike in views and comments. Seems we have our friends at Anderton's to thank for that! Their "Parlour Acoustic Guitar Shootout" video bumped ours and other videos like it up into viewers' suggest videos. While we focus on the boutique builds, Anderton's did a fab job of highlighting parlors in the £500-£800 range, or under $1500. Don't miss it!
