Description

These days, parlor guitars are starting to experience the same degree of popularity they enjoyed in their heyday during the early 1900s, thanks to advancements in modern amplification technology and a folk and traditional music revival. Naturally, builders are also expanding their lineups to include smaller-bodied guitars for their rich tonality and comfortable playability. The Santa Cruz Guitar Company has been making parlor-size guitars for some time now, and this 2010 Style 1 Custom is an excellent example of their work. Featuring a seductively figured Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and Italian Spruce top, sparkling Abalone flowerpot inlay and MOP snowflakes, and Brazilian Rosewood bindings, you'd be hard-pressed to find another parlor in this price range that looks (and sounds) so beautiful. All that Brazilian lends this guitar a rich and dynamic range, and when paired with the Italian Spruce's drive, creates a voice with big-bodied sustain. Santa Cruz has given this Style 1 a soft-V neck for vintage appeal and easy fretting, and the 12-fret design makes the strings expressive but not overly tight. Whether it's for American Traditional fingerpicking or Open D Blues, this Style 1 is a powerful instrument that's hard to put down.

Now that's what I call figured Brazilian! With a great voice to boot. I think I can speak for everyone in the shop when I say this guitar is what a parlor is all about: warmth, range, and comfort.
 
I love little guitars like this and this one is beautifully done. It brings to mind the old style 1 Martins that were originally designed for women. This would be a great guitar to travel with or play while sitting back on a comfortable couch. The tone is nice and balanced.
