Collings Parlor 1A Koa & Adirondack Traditional Sunburst



Brand-new Parlor 1A from Collings Guitars of Austin, Texas, featuring a special pint-sized set of Koa back and sides! If Mahogany and Red Spruce is the combination in a Collings flattop (and we think it is), think of this as a Collings parlor on steroids! Almost comically lightweight, the sound of this guitar is wide open with no hint of boxiness whatsoever. It's got woodiness aplenty, with just the right amount of sparkle on the treble strings to keep melodies lingering in the air. There's no finer couch guitar in existence. And as part of the "Traditional" lineup, this and all Parlors are priced with Collings' own handmade vintage style hard case!
