Tanglewood Discovery Series Parlour Electro-Acoustic Guitar in Open Pore Satin Natural 

Tanglewood recognise that to introduce people to music an instrument must have a high standard of build quality, good playability, attractive cosmetics, and as many features as possible to encourage and reward aspiring musicians. 

Using this design brief, Tanglewood luthiers created the Discovery Exotic series, a whole range of genuine musical instruments that feature 4 band EQ systems with stage backlighting, delicate 2mm fingerboard dots, black soft touch machine head buttons, and understated sound hole rosettes. All these features are aimed at bringing the specification of a much more expensive instrument into the entry-level market. 

The DBT PE HR has a Parlor size body which is amongst the smallest acoustic guitar you can buy – not counting the travel guitars – and are typically favoured by players of more low-key, less brash musical styles like folk and indie.

The guitar’s ‘shoulders’ – where the body meets the neck joint – will usually be slightly more sloped than you’d see in a classic dreadnought acoustic, while the base of the body will also be narrower than larger sized guitars. The guitar’s neck typically joins the body around the 12th fret. All of which makes for a more comfortable and less physically intrusive playing experience. Another obvious benefit of this is the portability of parlor guitars. Their relatively smaller form factor means they lend themselves well to being slung in a case and carted off to gigs with less hassle than, for example, a jumbo-sized acoustic.

The small body size does not mean a compromise in sound as the long soundboard produces a big bass and bright highs. If you’re after a more compact guitar, this could be just the ticket.
