Larrivee Parlour guitar

For when you are travelling light...

Posted in Acoustic Guitars

James (my eldest son) borrowed this when serving in Afghanistan with 45 Commando Royal Marines... Great, if not difficult memories but I have now managed to recover it from his sticky hands. I travel with it all the time as it can be checked as hand luggage.

The fingerboard on this instrument is refreshingly wide and for such a small guitar it has a big sound! It is 3/4 size and consequently a doddle to play and great to travel with.

Recently, when recording my latest album 'The Knife', I restrung it using Nashville Tuning for the song 'Dreamer'. Unusually, I replaced all the strings with their octave counterparts which gives the track some jangly top end to compliment the dark valve Wurlitzer piano.

Fitted with a LR Baggs Element undersaddle pickup by the amazing Stuart Palmer of Doncaster and strung now with D'Addario EJ16: 0.012 - 0.52.
