With bevelled front and back edges
How many Pink Ivory Guitars have you seen lately? This is the rarest of all tone-woods. The curl or heavy quilting in this Pink Ivory is mesmerizing! And simply unobtainable. The top is Carpathian spruce. The binding and top & back bevels are Macassar Ebony. Macassary Ebony also serves as the soundhole binding and headstock faceplate. The slotted headstock has a Mother-of-Pearl logo, as well as Waverly tuning machines with Ebony buttons. The rosette is of abalone and Macassar Ebony. The neck is Maple. The signature Maingard Heel Cap is dyed Sycamore and Macassar Ebony. This guitar also has “red all around”, a delicate purfling line that accents the top, back, sides, headstock and fretboard. The fretboard and bridge are Ebony. The bridge pins are Ebony with pink(genuine Coral) dots.

Reviews of Parlour Guitar
“Every Pink Ivory guitar we’ve ever sold had a rare and special voice. There is a sweetness inherent to this tonewood that is all it’s one. I love the touches on this guitar as well, Marc Maingard’s custom Wave rosette and Seagull inlay nod to it’s birthplace of Cape Town, South Africa.” – Paul Heumiller
“This is a perfect fingerstyle guitar. I love the 12 fret neck and the Pink Ivory sounds amazing.” – Al Petteway
