RedLine Acoustics Advanced Parlor Guitar #041

This is one of our most recently built Advanced Parlor Guitars. It is indeed a unique instrument, with its Carpathian Spruce Top, Bastogne Back and sides, firestripe pickguard, and unique binding scheme and rosette. The mother of pearl slotted squares also set-off the rosewood fretboard nicely.

I don't know a lot about Bastogne, but I am told it is a relative to the Walnut family. We have built a couple of instruments with it, and it turns out to be an excellent tone wood. This guitar has plenty of power, yet it has a very sweet and articulate tone to it, if that makes any sense. This particular set of Bastogne is stunning to look at too. It has sort of a "cross-grain" to it, along with the light/dark grain color, that is a trademark of most things made of this wood.

I have a feeling that whoever ends up with this guitar will be very glad that they did. It sounds great, plays great, and is a great guitar! A top quality Guardian hard shell case is included with this guitar.
