John F. Stratton built stringed instruments in New York from around 1860 to 1914. His “HARP” guitar model is recognized by the ceramic headstock emblem engraved with the harp insignia. This is the earlier parlor guitar that I’ve had in the shop that shows its original X-bracing. The tone is warm and sweet and sure to please the bare-fingerstyle player with a light touch.

051717B

This Regal was made during the Harmony period of production just before retiring the brand for future use. It has classic parlor guitar lines and retains its original burst finish. Punchy and loud with a pick, it can take some digging in and rather likes it that way … thank you very much.

1930s Del Oro 12-fret parlor in X-braced spruce over birch, 1 13/16” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, fingerstyle/blues player

051117B

The Del Oro brand was made by Kay not long after the purchase of Stromberg Voisinet. This guitar was rebuilt from the inside out and finished in a dastardly “Black Bart” lacquer all around. The comfortable parlor size and resonant tone speaks to fingerstyle players who love to cuddle up and write some sad songs

c. 1942 Harmony “Roundup” 000-size 14-fret in X-bracing spruce over birch, 1 3/4” nut, super scarce and sassy vintage guitar

041417A

Harmony started producing the larger body “Roundup” models after 1939. This example has numbers inkstamped to the back that might link it to 1942 although I can’t be 100% certain. The look is classic, the feel is smooth and the tone is sassy and bold. Great example of a pre-war mid-size acoustic.

022017D

This Chicago-built 0-size, 12-fret model is a perennial favorite in my shop. They are well built, rarely mistreated and often fine sounding. This example is no exception showing very little signs of play over the years. Affordable slothead parlor that’s suitable for many playing styles.

50 year old Harmony 00-size 12-fret in solid spruce over solid birch, 1 3/4” nut, 2 1/4” string spacing, quality build/tone that likes the fingerstyle player

101716D

Many of the original Harmony 00-size models were built as classical guitars, but classical guitars can be converted to steel string with great results. This I know. The aged spruce top and 12-fret configuration delivers a sweet sound when played bare fingerstyle and the 60’s folk vibe really shines through. Far out.

1960s Regal 0-size, 12-fret in ladder-braced solid birch, 1 11/16” nut, 2 1/4” string spacing, strummer/flatpicker’s delight

082116B

The last of the Regal factory parlors from Chicago took this shape before collaborating with Harmony and, later, overseas interests. These are solid, work horses that don’t shy away from an aggressive attack. The tone comes out best with a pick, whether strummed or flatpicked, while the compensated bone saddle keeps intonation in check.
