Reviews of the best beginner acoustic guitars
“The dreadnaught is king” they say. “The smaller guitar is for kids” I’ve been told. Apparently they – whoever “they” are – haven’t been keeping up with modern guitar trends…particularly parlor guitars.
Smaller-sized guitars are coming back into style and the guitar manufacturers are responding with a impressive additions to their lines that includes a number of travel and parlor guitars.
But what is a parlor guitar and how is it different than a travel guitar? Let’s take a moment to answer a few of these questions and then look at the newest and best parlor guitars being sold in stores right now.
Some history on the company before I begin my KLOS Review: Back in May of 2015 brothers Ian & Adam Klosowiak launched their first kickstarter for the carbon fiber guitar that they designed and built themselves. Fast Forward to February 2017 and they are launching their newest version of KLOS Guitars! The idea for the carbon fiber travel guitar came shortly after Alan left his dorm window open when he went away on break. While he was gone the cold dry air did what it tends to do to wooden guitars and cracked it from the bridge all the way to the end of the soundboard. They wanted to make a guitar that could handle all elements as well as the dangers of traveling with a guitar. Thanks to Ian’s mechanical background and his knowledge of guitars the first KLOS carbon fiber travel guitar became a reality.
If you want an amazing guitar with the latest technology you have to check out the 2016 Yamaha . Yamaha has really raised the bar for acoustic guitars with their new model, the LL TA. This guitar allows you to add reverb as well as chorus to the natural sound of an acoustic guitar without ever even plugging it in.
