Martin-style Size 1, 12-fret parlor in solid mahogany, 1 3/4” nut, 2 1/4” string spacing, fun growler with classic lines

111118A

I build a handful of guitars each year in the spirit of the old 12-fret parlors. In this case, the Martin Size 1 body mold ensures that form and function are equal partners in this latest new/old parlor offering of an all-solid mahogany body coupled with a 30s era reinforced poplar neck. The tone has a distinct “growl” and the playability goes a long way to help make that happen.

Pre-war Regal 0-size, 12-fret in ladder-braced spruce over birch, 1 13/16” nut, 2 1/4” string spacing, fabulous all-around player

102818A

This Regal dates from the 1930s and was born as a Hawaiian theme guitar. Regals have classic proportions similar to those of the Martin body from this same period. This old gal is a crack free example with great tone and playability. Lots of guitar here for the money.

50s Kay 00-size, 12-fret in fan-braced solid spruce over birch, 1 13/16” nut, generous 2 3/8” string spacing, fine fingerstyle guitar with rich voice

102818B

This Kay dates from the 1950s and was born as a classical guitar with fan bracing. I’ve had great success on converting this model from nylon to steel string, taking advantage of the original/aged spruce top with bracing that favors a floating bridge configuration. You’ll be amazed at how lush the tone sounds.

1950s Harmony 0-size, 12-fret in ladder-braced solid birch, 1 3/4” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, nice melodic sustain

102818C

This guitar was made by Harmony for the Canadian market and sold through Eaton Dept Stores. This particular guitar was once owned by the infamous Rosie Parisien of Winnipeg, CA as etched in the wood on the back. Great piece of history that’s been brought back to life and ready for another 70 years of playing time.

1930s Supertone 0-size, 12-fret in solid, ladder-braced birch, 1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" string spacing, fun guitar with a bluesy vibe

082818C

Starting with the cowboy guitars on the early 1930s, old Supertones offered by Sears & Roebuck are fun little guitars for the modern blues player. They are well built, feel comfortable and sound great. This example retains it original Supertone paper label inside the soundhole. A somewhat chunky neck might discourage the small at hand but otherwise this 80 year old guitar is certainly worth a look for the money.
