I have heard about these many times....
can anyone explain what are parlor guitars?
Parlour guitar is a term given to small-bodied steel string guitars in the style of late 19th and early 20th century American instruments. They usually have wide fingerboards, 12 frets to the body and slotted headstocks and tend to be good for fingerpicking rather than strumming...
