Description

While known more so for his classical guitars, Darren Hippner has joyfully created a small batch of Brazilian Rosewood Parlor guitars in true traditional fashion. We purchased a number of these and have just this one left to offer. This handsome guitar is exquisitely crafted from Brazilian Rosewood and Engelmann Spruce. It is X braced and lightly built for a true Parlor sound that is lively and vibrant. This is a big sounding little charmer with rich, complex tone. It's very pleasing to hold and to play. Designed for extra light strings (.011s) or silk & steel it's also extremely easy to play. This is the perfect.... well... parlor guitar for musical enjoyment in your home. Top quality construction and an extremely good value for Brazilian Rosewood.

This is a really traditional Parlor design. I think that Darren's being primarily a classical builder allows him to really make a great Parlor guitar. It is lightly built so the sound explodes out of it and it has a lot of charm. The Brazilian/Engelmann body makes for a warm, rich voice with strong fundamentals and just enough sustain. These Hippner parlors are articulate and clear yet have great punch. We offer these setup with extra lights or silk and steel so you have your choice between very traditional and warm or modern and brilliant. These guitars will capture your heart, they are fun and joyful.
 
There is something special about playing a parlor guitar. It's like going back in time.
