Here is a lovely Boucher HG54 M Heritage Goose Parlor 12 Fret Guitar, built with a Torrefied Adirondack Spruce top and Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.

Once a dominant guitar design, the Parlor style guitar’s popularity faded along with the banjo and the introduction of Jumbo or Dreadnought body sizes in the early 1930’s. Parlor guitars tend not to be particularly loud, but do offer even, rich tone. As more players become interested in solo finger styles, the Parlor design is becoming more attractive again and builders are offering high-quality takes, such as the Boucher HG54 M.

The Boucher HG54 M is based on a standard Parlor body, roughly equivalent to Martin’s ‘Single O’. The top is Torrefied Adirondack Red Spruce, with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back. The body blocks and slotted-peghead, 12-fret neck are South American Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. Herringbone purfling sets off the top, and an Abalone ring surrounds the soundhole. The stock tuners are by Gotoh.

This is a very nice guitar to play. The small body size and slightly short scale length of the Boucher HG54 M, one quarter inch shorter than a Gibson, make it very comfortable to sit in a chair and play, without bumping into too many things. The tone is rich and well balanced. Small body guitars can have a somewhat ‘boxy’ tone, but that’s not the case here. The action is very comfortable right out of the box.

The original Boucher branded hard shell case is included.

More From The Builder On The Boucher HG54 M Heritage Goose Parlor Style 12 fret:

“Our HG-54 is crafted for the best tonal results. It will deliver mids and bass depth while finger picking even using a capo at the 7th fret. Evenness and richness of sound will surprise the most accomplished players.

The ability of the Boucher HG54 M to adjust to your musical style will elevate your playing to the point of your finding it difficult to put it down. Many fingerstyle players have told us that they feel immediately became better musicians as soon as they played our Heritage Goose. This gives us at Boucher Guitars a great sense of pride to help you accomplish your full musical potential and to boost your creativity.

The Heritage Goose HG-54 is built using torrefied Adirondack spruce personally selected by Robin Boucher for both the bracing and the soundboard.
Its incomparable playability and versatility will make it the ideal guitar to satisfy your most ambitious aspirations.

The HG-54 is the perfect guitar for your Fingerstyle projects!”
