Few guitars are truly crafted in this era of mass production and CNC-programming, but Goodall stands as one of those scarce, shining beacons of carefully composed hand-construction. The Fret House is honored to have nurtured a relationship with the good folks at Goodall for upwards of 25 years, and we're just as delighted to have in our inventory one of their fine Rosewood Parlors. Configured with the tried-and-true combination of (AAA Adirondack) spruce and (East Indian) rosewood, the Rosewood Parlor may be conventional in tonewood disposition, but as a result of Goodall's signature top thickness graduation and Parlor X-Bracing, this little fella has anything but a diminished or typical tonality. Well-suited for finger-style, the Rosewood Parlor boasts a simultaneously harmonically dynamic yet contained timbre, with a tonal spectrum ranging from a wholesome and growl-like low-end, to shimmeringly brilliant and bright, but by no means not overly so. A true diamond in the rough, the Goodall Rosewood Parlor is for those players than are truly looking for (and can handle) a guitar playing experience.
