The Gibson 2019 Parlor Rosewood Avant Garde Electro Acoustic in Rosewood Burst is a fantastic model for gigging performers who want a guitar with a shorter scale and more manageable body shape, but who don't want to compromise on output power or tonal integrity. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to get from A to B in safety and style, and a Gibson accessory kit to keep your guitar in pristine condition.
The 2019 Parlor Rosewood Avant Garde is shaped to Gibson's J-165 body profile, which takes on the shape of a classic Jumbo but with scaled-down dimensions. The result is a comfortable playing feel combined with a generous output that is delivered with gusto. The body back and sides are built using rosewood, a resilient and warm-sounding tonewood that produces a rich and resonant midrange tonal foundation. The top is crafted using Sitka spruce, which is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing to improve resistance to warping whilst allowing the spruce to resonate freely.
The Parlour Rosewood Avant Garde has been treated to a delightful rosewood burst finish, which is protected by a coating of nitrocellulose to improve its ability to age gracefully over time. Multi-ply binding around the top and single-ply binding around the back complements the paintwork beautifully.
Steady neck design
Joined to the body via an elegant compound dovetail neck-to-body joint is a mahogany neck, which extends over a generous 24.75-inch scale length that emphasises a warm response from every note. Shaped to an advanced response profile, the neck sits comfortably in the hand and offers a supportive playing feel. Married to the neck is a tactile richlite fingerboard, which is a composite material that boasts impressive resilience to guarantee flawless performance. The fingerboard is home to 19 frets that are decorated with mother of pearl single parallelogram inlays to guide your way. The cutaway body profile affords ready access to the highest reaches of the neck to give you complete freedom to roam.
The headstock is home to mini Grover Rotomatic tuners, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most demanding of performances. The body is home to a traditional belly-up richlite bridge, which anchors each string to create a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimised intonation and sustain. From the bedroom to the studio to the stage, the 2019 Parlour Rosewood Avant Garde is a hardworking performer that can match your enthusiasm every step of the way.
