Parlor Guitar To Showcase At SBAIC

  • April 5, 2017
Currently on the workbench is a Brazilian Rosewood parlor guitar with elegant Black & White Striped Ebony accents. As much as I enjoy working with a client to design their dream guitar, it is also incredibly satisfying to rummage through the wood stash to select woods with a specific aesthetic vision and tone quality in mind. I can't wait to string up this guitar!

Gorgeous Old Redwood Top Paired With Curly KOA

Gorgeous Old Redwood Top Paired With Curly KOA

  • January 10, 2016
With a desire to experience building with various top materials, it was an easy choice to select this very old Redwood top for my latest build. This wood is lighter in weight than Sitka but still maintains incredible stiffness and has a musical tap tone. I wasn't sure if I would love the atheistic look of a Redwood top guitar, but paired with this stunning reddish-golden set of Hawaiian Curly Koa, I was pleasantly surprised with the end result! As for the tonal character, this parlor guitar displays a slightly dark tone with a crisp, bold response. Redwood/Koa is a winning combination that I will continue to use for Urlacher Guitars! See and hear Don Latarski playing redwood/koa parlor guitar.
