    Kinnaird Parlour - Engelmann & English Brown Oak

    Out of stock


    My second oak parlour from Steve and this beauty is just as spectacular as the last.

    It has fantastic balance and projection with great warmth, depth and clarity. My mother used to say 'great things come in small packages' this certainly applies here. It has as much volume as a much bigger guitar and is a comfortable to play as you could possibly wish for.

  2. Brentrup Parlour Adirondack/Oak acoustic guitar - sold

    Brentrup Parlour Adirondack/Oak acoustic guitar - sold

    Out of stock
    I've been hassling Hans to send me a guitar for a few years now. It was well worth the wait. Punchy little parlour is a tired old phrase but it certainly applies here, fantastic volume (OK not as much a s dread) separation and projection with a deep and characterful tone, oak and Adirondack is clearly a winning combination. And what a beauty, I love the look of the oak and Hans' Larson style rosette and purfling. A perfect blues guitar with plenty headroom and sustain for digging in.

    There's a ding on the back of the headstock (see photo) £250 has been knocked off because of this.

    Washburn Parlour 1904 (used)

    Out of stock
    1904 Washburn parlour in excellent condition. Adirondack/Brazilian rosewood, wooden coffin style case.

    The depth and richness of tone of this little beauty is truly remarkable! It's a little clichéd to say how parlour guitars sound like bigger guitars but if you doubt it, come and try this stunner. It has a quality of tone that only a hundred and ten years of Adirondack and Brazilian can produce.

    I have no expertise in this area but will do my best to answer any questions. As far as I can tell it is all original except for the bridge pins.

    Very lightly used with two small dings on the top, too light to photograph and some varnish wear.

    This really is the bee's knees. Its the fifth Parlour Retreaux I've had from Mike. The figured Bubinga is the most spectacular I've seen. The tone is very warm with fantastic depth.

  5. Peggy White Reesling Parlour - Italian Spruce & Flamed Maple

    Peggy White Reesling Parlour - Italian Spruce & Flamed Maple

    Out of stock
    There has been a lot of discussion on the Acoustic Guitar Forum recently about the tonal properties of maple. Having been a believer for a long time that in the hands of a skilled luthier it makes a fantastic tonewood for the back and sides of guitars (as well as mandolins) I am delighted to see the consensus heading my way.

    This gorgeous Reesling parlour guitar from Peggy proves my point. It has fantastic clarity and balance with a lovely deep and resonant tone. The bass notes are full and well defined, the mids warm and complex and the trebles bright, warm and clear.

    Wow! Rich, full deep and warm with volume, definition and projection. I have never before heard such solid, clear and well defined trebles on a guitar of this size. If you are looking for a small guitar that does everything a bigger one will do look no further.

    It takes a great teacher (Linda Manzer) and a great student to achieve this level of perfection.

    Batson Parlour - Sitka & Quilted Sapele - Cutaway & Arm Bevel (used)

    Out of stock
    Another guitar in my ‘small, very easy to play with a big sound’ project. It has a fourteen inch lower bout, short (24.9”) scale, armrest, 12 frets to the body and a cutaway. It just couldn’t be easier to play and the sound is classic Batson. Big and warm but with clarity and balance.. To use one of my favourite clichés a quart in a pint pot.

    Ken made the back and sides of this beauty form an old oak dresser from the 1940s. I've been wanting to get an oak guitar since I heard that Hans Brentrup was working with it and getting great results.

    Sold to Dave Pegg of Fairport Convention.

    1918 F4 that's seen some action. It structurally sound all round, with original tuners with the fantastic Handel buttons, original tailpiece and cover, later adjustable bridge and a modern shaped hardshell case.

    I love its well worn look and it sounds terrific, its warm and full with plenty of volume. A great price for a wonderful piece of history that has many a year of entertainment in it yet for players and audiences.

    £4,350.00
     
    In stock
    Weber's Yellowstone in Adirondack/red spruce and beautiful flamed maple with an oval soundhole. Great looks - the honey and tortoise is one of my all time favourites - and oh that sound.

    Many oval hole mandolins (particularly flat - tops) lack definition and clarity and have hard wishy-washy bass, this beauty has fantastic balance with sweet and well defined bass notes, complex and warm mids and wonderful clear and characterful trebles.

    It comes with Weber's superb hardshell case.

    Weber Fern A5 - A Style - F Hole (used)

    In excellent condition, was £3795.

    This is Weber's top of the line A mandolin. Its a stunner and features a hand graduated and tuned solid Red Spruce/Adirondack top, hand scalloped spruce tone bars, flamed maple back and sides, "The Weber" script in MOP and Fern inlay in Abalone, cast Weber gold tailpiece, gold Grover tuners, Traditional Brekke Bridge and comes in a deluxe rectangular case.

    Its a Fern F5 without the strap hanger and around three grand less but has 'the sound', its punchy with enough chop to lay low a few ban*os, with a sweet and sublime power. A gentler approach yields a very sweet, rich and warm sound with great separation and balance. This is a truly outstanding all-rounder.

    Whether hunting ban*oes or serenading, this beauty will be a faithful and willing accomplice.

When I got the opportunity to buy it I snapped it up but unfortunately it's the victim of my latest thinning of the herd.. just too many at home..

    Believed to be one of only three made with this headstock design... I know I am going to regret this....

    Legendary Luthiers Five: Jeff Traugott 15 October 2016

    This was another huge success. Many thanks to Jeff for a fantastic day and a very interesting talk.

    This will be the fifth legendary Luthiers event. Previous events with Ervin Somogyi, Linda Manzer, Ray Kraut and Grit Laskin were a great success.

    Jeff will be bringing the next TAMCO guitar, specs still to be decided, let me know if you have any ideas. He is keen to discuss your requirements and take orders.

    It will follow the usual pattern, open house in my shop on the Saturday until six, talk at six, ticket holders only, then food at Bom Bane's at around eight. There are only twenty tickets available.

    This will be the fourth legendary Luthiers event. Previous events with Ervin Somogyi, Linda Manzer and Grit Laskin were a great success.

    The idea started out as a meet for owners of Ervin Somogyi and his apprentices guitars. Then I remembered that I was due a guitar from Ray Kraut soon. So Ray will be bringing a guitar and giving a talk.

    I am hoping many of you with guitars by Ervin and his apprentices will come along with your guitars and compare and contrast! I am planning to video the event and will continue with the owners meet in my house on the Sunday of there is enough interest. Non owners welcome too!

    I should have Somogyi apprentices guitars in stock from Ray, Leo Buendia, Hiroshi Ogino and Michi Matsuda.

    It will follow the usual pattern, open house in my shop on the Saturday until six, talk at six, ticket holders only, then food at Bom Bane's at around eight. There are only twenty tickest available.

    This was a fantastic success, enjoyed by all. Many thanks to Ray

    Following the great success of Ervin Somogyi's visit I decided to offer a Legendary Luthiers series of visits to TAMCO. Legends in contemporary guitar luthiery don't get any bigger than Linda Manzer.

    The visit was a great success. It was an honour to have Linda and Peggy White here. After a few hours chatting in the shop we all went over to Bom Bane's Café where Linda gave a wonderful slide show and Jane (Bom Bane) provided a fantastic spread of delicious food. It really was a privilege to hear Linda tell her story I'm I am over the moon to have one of her guitars in stock.

    I'm hoping to have Linda's close friend Grit Laskin and Jeff Traugott over in 2015.

    Lynn makes very few of his A-1 model to a basic spec, no variations. I originally bought it from Lynn, he told me that he enjoys making these once in a while because he doesn’t have to work to other people’s requirements. It still has the 'Dude' sound, they don't come any better, volume and subtlety, richness and clarity, projection and intimacy, its has it all. And I think it looks amazing.
