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.
Urlacher Guitars was back in La Conner, WA! Another fabulous weekend of music and friends. Here I am eagerly awaiting Mary Flower to take the stage and work her magic with these two guitars. Mary is a blues and ragtime fingerstyle guitarist and vocalist. You can check out her music here: maryflower.com. These two beauties, a New Guinea Striped Ebony Modern Dreadnought and a Brazilian Rosewood Parlor guitar, are now available for purchase. Please inquire for more information.
