Baranik Retreux Parlor "Bee's Knees", Beeswing Figured Bubinga & Italian Spruce - Pre-Owned
This Retreux Parlor, nicknamed the "Bee's Knees", from CA-based luthier Mike Baranik has a surprisingly rich, powerful tone for a guitar this size. Beeswing figured bubinga and Italian spruce are paired together, and the neck joins the body at the 13th fret, giving the player the advantages of the 12-fret design with a little more access up the neck. The condition of this pre-owned parlor is excellent, and it ships in its original hard case.
