Welcome

Welcome to VintageParlorGuitars.Com. I specialize in the repair, restoration and sale of early to mid-century parlor and small bodied 12-fret acoustic guitars. I focus on durability, playability and intonation as my restoration mantra. Well seasoned woods and a good setup takes care of the sound. You're not likely to buy a museum piece from me but I can guarantee it's ready for the 21st century player in every way.

I price my guitars for the working man and always have a good selection of instruments set up for both right and left-handed players. Check out my current inventory for parlor, 12-fret and other acoustics and check back from time to time as things are constantly changing.

Large selection, high quality

I always have a good selection of vintage parlor and 12-fret acoustic flat tops on hand. You can expect to find a guitar here that’s all tight and right, seams and joints secure, intonation set properly and set up ready for play. I'm a fingerstyle player myself so most guitars are set up for that style in advance. Any adjustments are made before delivery. I work hard to find a good fit for you and offer an honest return policy.

If there’s something specific you’re looking for and you don’t see it here, let me know. Or look through our archive to guide me to something you like. If you do see something interesting in the current inventory, act sooner than later as things move awful fast around here.

Let me know how else I can help you and remember,
it’s all about the music.
