Description

Don Musser makes small guitars writ large: this Parlour rings out from wall to wall. Gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, bound in Flamed Koa, with Colorado Engelmann Spruce on top—and of course these woods are top notch, considering Don’s reputation in the tonewood world. In fact, this is a set of Braz from his pre-Cites “Stash Grade” stacks which was imported into the states in 1948. The Engelmann Spruce Don selected and processed himself, to boot.
The trebles have a lot of pop, and they pair up sweetly with the warm and present mids. The bass register comes in from the bottom to round it out. The setup is slinky and smooth, and with a 25.5 inch scale length it handles drop tunings easily.

Don told me that Neil Young has one of these Parlour guitars. I can see why. Extremely fun to play, easy to hold. As a songwriter I would love one of these hanging right next to my writing desk. But more than a tool, this one is inspiring.
