So often overlooked in favor of its louder and larger descendants, the parlor guitar is coming back, no doubt in part due to Collings' exquisite recreations of this late 19th century design. With a long body and a short scale, it's slinky and easy-playing. While it may never compete with the dreadnought in terms of volume, its sweet clarity and richness of tone make it a deeply satisfying guitar for intimate jams and solo playing at home. Sitka spruce gives this model a warm balance across the registers, while Collings' Traditional build techniques and voicing ensure a dose of that coveted pre-war sound.
