Collings Parlor Deluxe Adirondack Maple Traditional NAMM 2018

Sold

Description

There's now a "Deluxe" appointment level in the new Collings Parlor guitar series. And this instrument, made to showcase the stylish new trim package for NAMM 2018, has been further customized with flamed maple back & sides (not a standard option for a Parlor). All Parlors are built with Collings' "Traditional" voicing and thin nitrocellulose finish, ensuring maximum depth of tone and responsiveness. And to play this guitar, you'd never think "Maple" upon first strum. Its sound is big and fat, and it feels only slightly heavier than your average potato chip. Single notes are focused, round and clear all the way up the neck, and using it to accompany a vocal yields delightful results as well. As part of the "Traditional" lineup, this and all Parlors are priced with Collings' own handmade vintage style hard case.
