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.
I am thrilled to announce that the very talented singer-songwriter Connor Garvey is now playing an Urlacher Parlor Guitar. It has been a pleasure getting to know Connor and his music! His resume of musical achievements and awards is impressive, including: 2014 Kerville Folk Festival – New Folk Competition WINNER, and 2014 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival “MOST WANTED” Artist.
