The Thirty Six – BP

Style: L | Series: Black Pearl, Slope Shoulder

Also referred to as the Parlor guitar (depending on where you are in the world), this design is among the smallest of acoustic guitar body shapes. 1936 was a great year for the Parlor design and our ‘Thirty Six’ takes inspiration from those very guitars right at the time they became a pivotal part of American Folk and Blues music.

Carefully selected Baked Sitka Spruce is used for the top. Combined with their hand-scalloped bracing, it delivers a tight, bouncy tone that’s perfect for folky fingerpicking and blues-style flatpicking alike.
