This Size-1 Parlor guitar.....SOLD.

A newly-built Size-1 Parlor guitar, with flame White Oak back & sides, a Ponderosa Pine top, a laminated Pine neck, a Padauk fretboard & bridge.
This guitar was built with a small person in view, a small hand & arm length. A short scale of 24" and a 1-5/8" nut width makes a very comfortable playing guitar for the afore-mentioned person.
Not diminutive is the guitar's volume & tone! Because of the lower string tension of the 24" scale, all the woods have been thinned appropriately, and the lively-ness of the body is greatly enhanced, as is its lightness. It rings at the lightest touch.
If this guitar seems to be made for you, please contact me for details.

The Blowing Wheat drednaught

$3450. w/ case.

Built, ready to ship.

Honestly, this guitar is a force of nature, Spruce & Mahogany, Ebony & Bone are working together for a great sound!

The volume & tone is powerful, and it will grow to be something special, perfect for Bluegrass flat-picking.

Straight-grain Honduras Mahogany back, sides & neck, Adirondack (Red) Spruce top, Ebony fretboard & bridge, Rosewood binding and trim. French-polish shellac finish.

All-hot-hide-glue construction, pre-war style scalloped bracing, "Blowing Wheat" pearl fret markers on a solid-black Ebony board, 1-3/4" at the nut, string spacing 2-5/16". The neck is a very comfortable V-shape, straight & strong with a adjustable truss rod. Bone nut & saddle, unslotted Ebony pins, pre-war style Waverly nickel "oval button" tuners.
