Take It From The Top

This beautiful Collings Parlor offers players and collectors dreamy Madagascar rosewood back and sides, emboldened with an Adirondack spruce top. The guitar has a full-bodied voice, remarkable tone and a unique construction that demonstrates master craftsmanship.

 

Collings’s Take

The Parlor Deluxe is outfitted with custom made wood purflings and rosette and traditional appointments, upgraded with Madagascar rosewood back and sides and Adirondack spruce top. With a look as multifaceted as its tone, the uncommon sound of this small instrument has a nuance, warmth and focus that stays in your ear long after the music stops.

The Collings traditional package is made up of premium, time tested features. Animal Protein (AP) glue construction, built like the old guitars were, no tongue brace, traditional pre-war scalloped X bracing, extra thin full gloss nitrocellulose finish, a short 24 7/16″ scale length and 1 3/4″ nut width.

 

Special Features

The long and narrow body shape of the Collings Parlor Deluxe is inspired by some of the earliest steel string guitar designs that form the roots of the modern acoustic guitar family tree. First popularized in the late 19th century the parlor body style is once again finding its way into the hands of players who appreciate its exceptional tonal balance and responsiveness, as well as its portability and comfortable feel.

Named for what we now call the “living room”, this guitar comes from an era when friends would gather at home to make music before an evening’s entertainment could be readily broadcast, televised or streamed. While it may at first glance seem to be a relic of the past, today with music often being recorded in the living rooms of home studios, streamed from house concerts, and broadcast from Tiny Desks, perhaps this charismatic and beautiful sounding little guitar has once again found its moment to shine.
