The Redwood AP-20S Parlour Acoustic Guitar gives players a comfortable, smaller-bodied guitar that’s perfect for smaller or young guitarists, fingerpickers and blues players. Despite its size the guitar projects well and has a lovely warm tone thanks to solid cedar top and unique walnut back & sides. The Redwood AP-20S Parlour Guitars smaller body shape will be of great appeal to younger players and those who find larger guitars cumbersome. Classically known for being used by blues and folk musicians it is also the perfect shape for fingerpicking guitarists. It would also make an excellent second guitar for anyone who wants something to travel with that sits nicely between travel and concert guitar sizes, with the projection of a larger instrument.
Generally used on classical guitars, and more expensive guitars, the solid cedar top on the Redwood AP-20S Parlour Guitar gives the smaller-sized guitar a level of projection that you wouldn’t expect. This also lends itself well to the guitars parlour shape, as it doesn’t require a hard touch to give you a lot of volume. This wood produces a warm tone, similar to a classical guitar.
Tonally the walnut back & sides are the perfect accompaniment to the solid cedar top. The walnut not only pushes the warm sound of the Redwood AP-20S Parlour Acoustic Guitar but also adds plenty of bass to the mix. As walnut is not widely used it also gives the guitar a unique marble appearance that’s really striking.

- Great Guitar for the Cash!
- Great guitar at any price
Firstly the build quality - Looking around this guitar it is clean and tidy an all places. There are no sharp edges on any of the frets and no fret buzzes anywhere on the neck.
Playability - It's really easy - nice action - nice string spacing - good as a finger picker or strummer. Have to say, I just enjoy playing it - and that is always the main thing for me.
Sound - This does not sound like a Gibson Hummingbird or Martin Dreadnought. But neither does the parlour sized Martin. It sounds like a good parlour. The string volume is pretty consistent and the tone is sweet. It gets a bit boxy when you dig in with a plectrum, but then again so does every other small bodied guitar I have ever played. It certainly is a pleasant guitar to play and to listen to. I am considering getting a decent electro system put into it, I like it so much and using it to replace my Farida Dreadnought that I use at the moment. I am a fairly small person (same height as Tom Cruise without the good looks and money,) so the smaller body is much better for me. If you want a guitar and don't have a lot of money to spend, I would have a look at these redwoods, I think you might be pleasantly surprised.
