Description

Details

The Gibson Acoustic 2018 Parlor Rosewood Avant Garde Guitar in Antique Natural is treated to the same solid build quality we've come to expect from the team at Gibson Acoustic. However, you will instantly notice that this guitar is much smaller in dimensions compared to a dreadnought model. Don't be fooled though, as this Parlor model is designed to kick out a remarkable energy that is perfect for recording, gigging, busking, anything and everything, anytime, anywhere!

Parlor that packs a punch

The 2018 Parlor Rosewood Avant Garde is diminuitive in size, but is certainly not lacking in tonal power. The body is shaped to the J-165 profile - similar to a scaled-down jumbo - with a lower bout that protrudes further than the upper bout, giving the guitar plenty of depth to generate a stirring delivery. The back and sides are crafted using rosewood, a hardwood that is highly regarded due to its impressive midrange emphasis that is infused with a sublime warmth.

The top is built using a faithful soundboard tonewood, Sitka spruce. Favoured by many luthiers due to its uncanny ability to resonate freely, spruce delivers a confident projection that affords the Parlor a wide dynamic range to play with. The top is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing, allowing to resonate unimpeded whilst preventing buckling or warping over time.

Sturdy neck design

Married to the body via a compound dovetail joint is a solid mahogany neck, which has been shaped to the advanced response profile for a slimmer feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a richlite fingerboard, which is a composite material with impressive resilience to guarantee years of joyful performances. The fingerboard is home to 19 frets that are decorated with mother of pearl dot inlays to guide your way along the neck. Thanks to the cutaway body profile, every fret is within easy reach to maximise playing freedom and comfort.

Gig-ready appointments

The headstock is home to Mini Grover tuners, which uphold tuning integrity with precision. The body is home to the modern belly-down richlite bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimised intonation and sustain. The result is a guitar that performs with consistency every time you pick up and play.

L.R. Baggs Element VTC Pickup System

Equipped with the award-winning L.R. Baggs Element VTC electronics' system, you can take to the stage in effortless style and plug directly into the amp or P.A. of your choosing, safe in the knowledge that the acoustic character of your guitar will be translated transparently.

The pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp are controlled using the soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls. The built-in low frequency crossover prevents any unwanted low-end grunt from over-powering your signal, and allows the natural timbre of the Parlor to sing with the utmost clarity.

The Gibson Acoustic 2018 Parlor Rosewood Avant Garde Guitar in Antique Natural is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case, as well as a Gibson accessory kit. Wherever your music takes you, you can get your guitar there in security and style, and keep it in top condition for years to come.
