Del Oro Parlor Guitar C. 1930’s
In a long forgotten time…
All the hope and glory envisioned by America is summed up in the motif’s screenprinted on this guitar. The art deco imaginings of sky scrapers and jack bauds suggest better times ahead.
Beautiful solid birch construction with maple fretboard. New fretboard, refret, bridgeplate and soundboard rebracing and reinforcement. She’s recieved the whole 9 yards.

American Hawaiian Vintage Parlor Guitar
This little baby was so beautiful when we got her that the idea of “modding” her from a pin bridge to a string through body was not going to fly. So we did only what was needed; Neck reset, refret, replace broken bracings etc. Check out that decal, check out that label, would you do to a beautiful vintage parlor guitar than that?
And she sounds amazing! History history history! It’s all here for very little
$1295 inc Case

This little girl is a cannon!!!!!..it’s LOUD! And woody and everything besides, the perfect thing to out do those pesky banjo players. As you can see, she still has her original case and the original scratch plate albeit slightly shrunk. We are presently making a replica to compliment the overall vibe.
