It seems to be every guitar maker’s goal to build a small-bodied instrument that has the fullness and presence of its louder brethren. To that end, there are plenty of great parlor guitars out there, and while many are punchy and loud, they typically lack body and depth. In crafting their parlor guitar, James and Luke Goodall made it a little bigger overall, really putting it somewhere between a 0 and 00. The increase in size pays dividends in sound, while still being pleasantly comfortable and travel-ready.

This 12-fret parlor combines a master-grade Adirondack spruce top with a special and uncommon tonewood: cherry! We would describe it as being akin to a warmer maple, with strong, articulate fundamentals and medium sustain. Balanced across the registers, it has a stronger bass than you might expect. The satin finish mahogany neck blends in seamlessly with the cherry body, and with the slight V profile and 25", it is an effortless joy to play.
