David from Adelaide enjoys his Parlour 12. We spent a lot of time deciding on the neck width and string spacing that was right for him. He likes to Carter pick, so the right space between the courses was important.
This is probably the most critical decision when designing a 12 to suit a player’s style and hand size.
He says: “It’s a real pleasure to play this guitar. Michael made it to fit my hands, and it just feels … right. I had a Jumbo 12, which I’ve since sold, and this guitar is as loud, has a better (much better) sound, and it’s a damn sight easier to play. I love it.”
