What We Think

The sheer complexity, sensitivity, and presence of this Master Italian Spruce/Honduran Rosewood model rival the output of many guitars that are much bigger in size.  As parlors go, this is a big one--the depth and width are a bit closer to the OO range rather than the diminutive parlors of the early 20th century.  James Goodall's more forward-leaning design, however, will absolutely stun any player.  The bass and low mids alone will shock you from the first strum.  That Italian spruce lends both clarity and color to the glassy, singing overtones offered by the ever-lively Honduran back and sides.  A fast satin neck and 25" scale make playing this mini-orchestra as comfortable as it gets.

Manufacturer's Description from Goodall

The Parlor, a small guitar with big sound!
 
In response to our customers' desire for a smaller instrument with the voice of a larger guitar, James Goodall has introduced two new elegant designs which comprise the Parlor series. The reception of the Parlor series at the 1999 Summer Nashville NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) show was phenomenal.
 
Everyone was amazed at the fullness and richness of tone as well as their punchy clarity.
 
Some even thought they were as loud as a Dreadnought bodied guitar.
 
The Parlor series guitar has a shorter 25" scale length. It has a scaled down bridge, peghead and sound hole. It is available in a 12 or 14 fret neck joint with a non slotted peghead or an optional 12 fret neck joint with slotted peghead* and bronze patina Waverly tuners. The 12 fret model has a sweet, round and responsive voice similiar in tone to a classical guitar. The 14 fret model has a little more punch and clarity in the mid range, very similiar to our Grand Concert series instrument. The Parlor series is available with all the same fine options and wood choices as in all Goodall guitars.
