Here for sale we have a Gibson Parlour Rosewood Modern electro acoustic guitar in Antique Natural finish. Built in 2020 this guitar features a Sitka Spruce top, Rosewood back and sides, a Mahogany neck, a Richlite fingerboard, traditional hand-scalloped'X' bracing, a 24.75" scale length, a 16" fingerboard radius, a 1.73 nut width, 19 standard frets, single mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays, mini Grover Rotomatic machine heads, along with soundhole mounted volume and tone controls.
The Parlour Rosewood Modern plays well, its'Advanced Response' neck profile having an ever so slight'V' feel which allows for ergonomic thumb positioning while still being slightly chunky in the hand. Its gloss finish is quick to navigate and the cutaway gives great access to the upper register and the small body shape feels intimate and easy to hold while sporting a wider lower bout than is usually found on parlour guitars. The Sitka Spruce top gives this guitar great projection and punch while the Rosewood back & sides have a lovely top end for clarity and articulation. The wider than average lower bout really helps this parlour guitar out with sounding larger than it actually is, with an overall tone that is well balanced and focused, certainly an instrument that will record well.

Headstock- The face of the headstock has light markings visible such as near the truss rod cover, these are noticeable on examination of the guitar. The sides and rear are in good condition. The top edge has visible markings from where the lacquer has worn and chips to the rear edge which can be seen a little on the front and rear of the headstock. Neck- The neck is overall in very good condition with any markings from previous playing wear being very difficult to distinguish, the neck offers a smooth playing surface. The binding shows some light wear with a finish chip to the bass side of the second fret and seventh. There are also some light blemishes visible to the treble side. Body- The top of the guitar has some markings which become more visible when scrutinising the guitar in specific lighting. There are markings which can be seen to the sides of the sound hole and light indents visible to the bottom of the guitar to the finish and to the top of the cutaway section. The sides also show light markings most noticeably where the guitar would rest on your knee in playing position.
The rear shows some visible markings/scratches from where the guitar has worn against the previous owner. There are some scuff markings visible and also some light indents visible in places although I would not deem them significant. No or little Indentation - Very Light playing wear. Truss Rod & Bridge- Fully Functional and can be adjusted. Height of the string from the 12th Fret- 3mm bass 2.5mm treble.Please be aware that the action on a guitar may move slightly in transit and this measurement is the current height. The setup is adjustable to preference by the new owner. The saddle height can be lowered should the new owner want a lower action. The current playability is an average I would expect from a new acoustic.
Strings on Guitar- 11 - 52. Electrics are in full working order. The guitar is in very good condition in my opinion in relation to the overall aesthetic, ability to adjust the action condition of the electrics and also the fret condition.The markings visible to the aesthetic I have only been really able to notice under bright white lighting and they seem to become less noticeable depending on the angle of the guitar in the specific lighting conditions. The machine heads show some fading to the gold plating which is not significant. The guitar comes with a Gibson case as you can see in the listing photos and is in very good condition.
