Collings Deluxe Parlor 2HA 41-Style Traditional
The Parlor body size hearkens back to the late 19th century, a time when the guitar size was selected for one's level of ability and the venue in which it would be played. Historically speaking, during the late 1800's C.F. Martin featured parlor models ranging in sizes from 5 (the smallest) to 1 (the largest). Collings Master Luther, Bruce Van Wart, introduced their Parlor, which in dimensions most resembles a Size 2.
This custom Collings 2H Parlor is absolutely stunning, featuring their hand-painted 2-Style Sunburst top and 41-Style appointments. Virtually one year in production, Master Grade Adirondack Red Spruce and Madagascar tone woods place this Parlor in a sublime class all its own.
Custom "41" Abalone top purfling with matching rosette inlays bring a level of detail and intricacy to this exceptionally unique guitar. Optional Abalone Torch peghead inlay and 45-Style fingerboard inlays compliment the design, celebrating an era of handcrafted inlay work.
Fully-bound in old-school grained ivoroid celluloid, the Madagascar Rosewood back and sides perfectly compliment the Adirondack top for a very pleasing, woody and natural sound with ample clarity and note separation. This amazing guitar projects extremely well and looks great doing it!
