Product Description

FREE padded gig bag included!

Today, people call such a guitar, with its small body, a parlor guitar. In the 1840s until well into the 20th Century, they were simply called guitars, as this size was the standard size for the time.

The guitar is a well-made modern guitar, modified to replicate a mid-19th century guitar such as the 1842-43 Martin “Spanish” model. The modifications include reshaping the headstock, replacing the head veneer and fitting with Wittner FineTune™ planetary flamenco (violin type) internally-geared pegs. These pegs look just like the ebony pegs used on many mid-19th Century guitars.

This is one of the types of guitar that would have been common during the American Civil War (early 1860s). It is a favorite of Minstrel Period enthusiasts, especially Civil War re-enactors.

The guitar is strung with John Pearse silk-and-bronze strings. It can be strung with Aquila Nylgut™ strings.
