What We Think

Borderline magical stuff going on here, folks!  The words "Bourgeois" and "Brazilian" used in the same sentence always indicate a source of utter enchantment but this instrument is truly something special.  I don't know the last time I played a guitar this small and I certainly can't recall an instrument -of any size- with a tone as dark, thick, and complex as this phenomenal Piccolo Parlor's.  We've--and I mean both electric and acoustic players alike!--decided we like it tuned a whole step down to both accentuate the rich, nuanced tone and to make playability that much more comfortable on an already effortless instrument.  Every note sounds multi-dimensional and complete unto itself.  The small (smallest, really!) bodystyle focuses and concentrates the highly expressive tonal qualities of the Brazilian and aged Adirondack into a powerful but incomparably balanced voice.  A rare bird if there ever was one--call us up and get its glorious song all to yourself before it flies out the door!

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

Our smallest body style, the Piccolo Parlor is not a travel guitar and not a toy. Advancements in acoustic theory and construction technique provide a unique opportunity to take a fresh look at the possibilities inherent in a baby parlor guitar with steel strings. Ours has a full harmonic and dynamic voice in standard tuning, suitable for solo or ensemble work or vocal accompaniment. Serious players have used the Piccolo Parlor to showcase a wide variety of playing styles but have only begun to scratch the surface of its possibilities.
