Description

Attention, Parlor guitar enthusiasts! We have an exciting new offering fresh off the boat from Scotland. Well, it landed in 2007, but the Kelday 000 sings like a spring chicken. William Kelday is an excellent luthier based in Fintry near Campsie Glen, Scotland, and has been churning out fine guitars since 1986. Our Kelday 000 features European Spruce to create a warm tonal palette, and Indian Rosewood back and sides for a punchy voice with lots of projection. Further, Kelday has installed doubled walls on this 000, which help isolate the back and top (enabling them to vibrate more freely) and enhances projection. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have pretty Mahogany bindings and an Abalone rosette to look at. This is a great example of what a Parlor guitar should sound like: punchy, crisp, sweet. It excels in open tunings (especially Open G), where the tone fills out and has a dynamic body with lots of separation. This guitar comes with the original Calton Flight Case.

You know, the thing about Parlors is they're so cheerful. This Kelday 000 is so exciting and responsive, I almost didn't want to tune it to DADFAD. Turns out: this Parlor also sounds incredibly mournful in D minor, with a fat, juicy low-mid range. I love the setup; great for Fingerstylists.
 
A really nicely balanced instrument that responds well to fingerstyle playing but should be great for flatpicking as well.
