Hi all

Well, the parlour has just arrived and I'm so happy  :D  :D  

Rosewood b/s, spruce top, all very nice.  Quite a lot more bass than the Mahogany b/s I played in London, which is a good thing, although those Elixir's are gonna have to go!  

Ebony bridge pins to come, and then I'll post some pix.

I just added Rosewood bridge pins to my Rosewood parlour. I thought it appropriate. No plastic. Sound difference? Don't care, don't think it matters on this guitar. But the look!

Welcome to the club!

2LF -- I just got my LV-03 yesterday -- I share your joy! Feels good, huh? What beautiful guitars these are, and they sound so good and play like buttah! Enjoy! And I hope you have a little better success with posting pix than I did.

Mmmmm, well, my parlour and I had a lovely evening getting to know each other... and I have to say I'm impressed.  What a big sound!  It won't become my main guitar, but it's absolutely perfect for a little guitar to pick up and play.

OK, so I have to get different bridge pins (already ordered!) and those Nanowebs are going to be changed - suggestions?  I was thinking of trying some DR Rare's - the guitar needs a bit more top end and a little more sparkle, so I think the DR's may suit quite well.  The action's a bit higher than I like, but that's easily sorted further down the line - I may try what lots of you seem to recommend and put a set of mediums on, so I'm gonna leave the action alone until I'm settled on a type and gauge of strings.

The only thing is that this guitar is too nice!!! - I got it so it could be a "house guitar", living out on its stand and getting played all the time, by anyone who wanted, and getting put in the car and taken out and about.  But it's so sweet and lovely that I want to cosset it and keep it in its case (does this mean I need to buy another guitar now?  B) )

So, thanks for the lovely welcome to the family.  Watch this space for progress reports...

Congrats 2left - I've had a rosewood parlour for a couple of months now, & I can tell you that if you like the sound now, you'll like it even more in days to come; mine has  a bone saddle (essential IMO) & Newtone strings, & is becoming a ferocious-sounding wee beast, how they do the quality at these prices I can't figure - enjoy..

Don't expect too much high end sparkle from a parlor. There are songs that I just can't play on the parlor because they really require that lovely ringing tone you get only from a larger body and a longer scale.
