P-40 | Master Series handmade parlor guitar
handmade parlor guitar, solid spruce & mahogany, glossy finish
Richwood Master Series handmade guitar P-40 parlor model, solid spruce top & mahogany sides and back, this results in a light, yet warm and lively tone.
The parlor model is modelled after the famous model from the turn of the century, yet fits perfectly in modern music. The very focussed tone and direct response are coupled with the very comfortable body size. The shorter scale length of 628 mm and the 12th fret neck/body joint make this P-40 extremely comfortable to play. The small body size and the somewhat wider nut of 46mm classify this as a perfect fingerstyle guitar. The low frequencies sound compressed, the mids are very present and the high frequencies are compressed as well, as a well-played instrument from the 1930’s would. The result is a guitar that will keep you inspired for years to come.
As all Richwood Master Series, this model displays an excellent playability with a very comfortable neck profile.
Parlor guitars fit perfectly in cases or gigbags for classical guitars.
