The Benavides Parlour 'Vintage Series' Acoustic Guitar is a finely crafted instrument designed with the discerning musician in mind. Made with high-quality materials, this guitar combines traditional construction methods with modern features to deliver an exceptional playing experience.

The heart of this guitar lies in its top-quality construction. The guitar is made with a hot hide glue & dovetail construction technique, a traditional method that offers superior tonal quality and a long-lasting build. The top of the guitar and the braces are made from Adirondack spruce, a highly prized tonewood known for its clear, loud sound and excellent sustain. David meticulously tap tests the bracing on his tops as he shaves them down.

The back and sides of the guitar are crafted from Pau Ferro, a dense, resonant wood that imparts a warm, rich tone. Pau Ferro is also used for the headstock and the bound fretboard, further enhancing the instrument's harmonic richness. The neck is made from Sapele (African Mahogany), a sustainable alternative to Mahogany known for its excellent stability and resonance.

The guitar's hardware is equally impressive. The bridge is made from Indian Rosewood, a dense, hard wood that provides excellent sound transfer. The non-slotted Ebony pins, unbleached bone nut and saddle, and the Golden Age 3-on-a-plate brass open gear tuners all contribute to the instrument's tuning stability and playability.

Aesthetically, the guitar features a Black Acacia binding and a Red Tortoise/purfling combo rosette, adding a touch of elegance to the instrument. The black/white/black violin purflings, Red tortoise pick guard, and gold letter logo add to the vintage appeal of this guitar. The guitar is finished in a thin Nitrocellulose gloss, which not only adds a beautiful shine but also allows the wood to resonate freely for a better tone.

This particular model also comes with a custom made Calton case, providing top-notch protection for your instrument when you're on the go or simply storing it at home.

The Benavides Parlour 'Vintage Series' Acoustic Guitar is not just an instrument; it's a testament to quality craftsmanship and a passion for music. Whether you're a touring musician or a hobbyist looking for a premium couch/travel guitar, this instrument is a fantastic choice.
