Peavey introduces the Composer Parlor Acoustic guitar
So the old stuff is getting used again… oh yeah I think that is what people call vintage these days. Do you remember the Parlor guitars? Those guitars used around 1895 until the 1950s? Yeah, those smaller-bodied guitars used by many blues and folk guitarists… now you know what I am talking about! Well, you know the brand Peavey right? They have introduced a really cool new series for their catalogue, the Composer Parlor Acoustic guitars – not the most aesthetically looking guitars for some, but who cares about the look if the sound is alright?
If you are a blues or folk guy or gal you will love these guitars unless you have a Gibson Gretsch or Stella parlor from 1920s in pristine condition.
Peavey designed and made the Composer Parlor series “for guitarists who want the tone and craftsmanship of a full-sized guitar with the comfort and playability of a Parlor guitar.”
The Peavey Composer is designed to a 24 ¾” parlor scale with amenities that guitarists of all stripes will appreciate. With a spruce laminate top and offset sound hole, the Composer produces a surprising amount of volume for its size, as well as clear, full-bodied acoustic tone and the natural playing comfort of a satin finish. A wide body cutaway scoop to the fifteenth fret provides access to the upper registers of the instrument.
