Since most of our guitars are custom orders its very seldom that you get the chance to buy an instrument from us without waiting time.
From time to time we make special guitars for shows or we just fool around to develop new ideas.
This is a Parlor Size prototype that we built as part of the shortlist for our new «Surround Sound Parlor» model. We finally chose the «RED» because it visually - and also with the placement of the sound holes - shows even more clearly our philosophy of the surround sound idea. Nevertheless, it has become a fine and great sounding guitar, which we now offer here as an exclusive prototype.
The back, sides and neck are from our 300-year-old Carcavellos mahogany - more information about it under www.theguitarbarrelproject.com - and the top made of ancient, tight grained and very fast responding cedar. The sound is very deep and balanced, but a little brighter than the «RED». Very suitable also for finger picking.
Specs: Top: Cedar
Back, Sides and Neck: Mahogany
Binding and Bridge: Ebony
