Hi all....I came across this site while trying to find any info on an old guitar of mine. Does anyone in this group have any info or ideas about this one? Ive had it for years and am rthe guilty one for the "makeover"......but it plays and I enjoy it! Thats all that really matters to me. I would like to have some idea of manufacture though!       Thanks for letting me in the group !

As I age, I found that small guitars became more comfortable, especially for fingerpicking... current short scale favorites are a Maingard Mini-Jumbo, Martin 0018, Taylor GC7 and a Taylor GS Mini.

Congrats on the new addition Ron, beautiful little axe!

I think you got a great buy.

I had a Gull parlor.  I thought it had nearly no overtones due to being overbraced.

The bedell has sold spruce on solid same le with nice appointments. Street price is $999 but the stupid price on my is $449. Definitely worth the money. Comes with free gig bag.

The bedell sounds sweet but saturates with hard strumming. I prefer the sound of a spruce top parlor over a cedar top parlor (gull parlor) as cedar parlor has overtones that is not too my taste. The short scale 24.7 gives a tight bass.  Best use is finger picking and comfort strumming.
