Reminder that we’ll be making a change in The Parlor’s hours as of May 1. We’ll be opening at 11am M-F instead of 10. Still the same wonderful place…just opening an hour later.
Epic Saturday downtown. Among the usual coolness there’s also the Rossini Festival – Knoxville, TN. Stop by and say hi if you’re in the neighborhood – we’ve got some great vinyl to thumb through (there’s bound to be some Rossini in there somewhere…)
Close out deals on selected string sets at the shop. First quality Dunlop and DR’s for acoustic bass, mandolin and banjo. Stop by and check ‘em out.
We’re loving this great little Rex A-style mandolin. From the 1920′s, it features sumptuous straight grain Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, spruce top and a lovely voice. Original tuners with metal plate on the back of the headstock, binding and pickguard are all in great shape. A super choice for old time music and front porch jams. $500
This Antonio Hermosa classical is a great little guitar for beginners, or for anyone looking to add a nylon string sound to their current array. It features a solid cedar top, wooden binding (classy touch), easy action, smooth tuners, and an easy price – $200
Record Store Day. While we’re not a record store per se, we’ve got a particularly fabulous stock of cool selections right now, all just $3 each. It’s a beautiful day. Get on out there and visit your local record store and pick up some vinyl. Be well folks!
Sweet little cylinder back mandolin from the 1920′s. Built by the Vega instrument company in Boston, MA. Spruce top, mahogany back and sides. Beautiful little sunburst finish, star MOP inlay, all hardware appears to be original, binding intact. Produces one of the sweetest, brightest voices in the shop. In great shape. $1000.
Pic of the day: ’83 Fender Jazz Bass. Beautiful condition (near mint), nice sunburst finish, plays great, comes with a hard shell case. $1600. Yum, yum…
If you’re looking for something different to add to your sonic palette, consider this: a beautiful 20′s era Vega Style-F tenor banjo. History, tone, and autographs in abundance. $500 Be well and be kind, good people.
Starting in May we’ll be opening at 11am instead of the current 10am opening time. The new hours of operation will be 11am-8pm M-F, 11am-7pm Sat., and 12-5pm Sun. Thanks a bunch!
