Collings Parlor 2H Traditional (T-Series) 12-Fret

The long and narrow body shape of the new Collings Parlor is inspired by some of the earliest steel string guitar designs that form the roots of the modern acoustic guitar family tree. First popularized in the late 19th century, this diminutive guitar has often been overlooked in favor of its larger and louder descendants, but the parlor body style is once again finding its way into the hands of players who appreciate its exceptional tonal balance and responsiveness, as well as its portability and comfortable feel. Named for what we now call the "living room", this guitar comes from an era when friends would gather at home to make music before an evening's entertainment could be readily broadcast, televised or streamed. While it may at first glance seem to be a relic of the past, today with music often being recorded in the living rooms of home studios, streamed from house concerts, and broadcast from Tiny Desks, perhaps this charismatic and beautiful sounding little guitar has once again found its moment to shine. Crafted with our Traditional series appointments, features, and voicing techniques, the Collings Parlor has a full bodied voice and projection that belies its small size.


EXPLORE THE NEW T-SERIES
Our Traditional Series or "T-Series” guitars represent an exciting vintage-inspired tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. In developing the Traditional series, great care was taken to maintain the power, balance, and clarity that makes the Collings voice unique while adjusting aspects of the design that contribute to the warm, rounded highs, present low midrange, and open feel showcased throughout the T-Series lineup.
