I love small bodied guitars, and this offering from Gibson is terrific. If I didn’t already own a maple CJ-165, I’d hoard this one for myself.

Gibson sez: “The Parlor Rosewood Avant Garde is an innovative, next evolution of what a small-body cutaway instrument should sound like. Never before has a slim, small-body, with a cutaway offered such a giant sound, excellent playability, and distinctive styling all in one package. World class acoustic tone suitable for home, studio, live stage, or high-level professional performance.”

Equipped with an LR Baggs Element VTC pickup, Grover mini tuners, and a 24.75 short scale.

Condition: New; Top: Sitka; Back and sides: Rosewood; Neck: Mahogany, Richlite fretboard; Nut: 1.725; Scale: 24.75; Binding: Ivoroid; Purfling: w/b/w; Rosette: abalone
