We didn't have a separate forum for Parlor guitars until this morning (April 10, 2015). But we've been answering question offline that we didn't have a good place to upload. Plus our sister site, RiverboatMusic.com just published a Parlor Guitar Buyer's guide that tells the history of the things.http://riverboatmusic.com/guitar/parlor ... guitar.htm
A far as I can tell, "parlor guitar" was a name given to the "full-sized" guitars once the Jumbo and Dreadnought came out. Readers get confused when people tell them that these relatively-dinky looking instruments are "full-sized." Yet, among certain pop and acoustic-oriented stars, the parlor guitar is making a comeback.
If you are a parlor guitar fan, have questions, or have photos or stories you'd like to share, please join up and contribute.
