    The Loar LO-16 "Small Body OO"

    Alvarez Masterworks MP70

    Larrivee P-01 Parlor

    In order of desirability:

    Larrivee P-01 Parlor

    The Loar LO-16 "Small Body OO"

    Alvarez Masterworks MP70

    Tanglewood TW73

    Seagull Coastline Parlor

    Recording King Parlor Guitar Deep Body RNJ-16FE3

    Simon & Patrick Woodland Pro Parlor

    BLUERIDGE BR-341

    Fender CP-100 Parlor

     

    If the Larrivee P-01 Parlor is an option, I'd grab that...they're excellent. The others, other than the Fender, are nice enough, but the Larrivee is prime..

    I can't say I've played all of those, but I have played the Seagull and the Tanglewood. Both are very nice.

      I've played none of them so I can't be any help, however I remember reading a review of the Blueridge in AG mag and they cautioned that it has a pretty narrow fretboard and string spacing at the saddle - said it was fairly difficult to play finger style on.   The compound radius on the Larry would bother me however some people seem to really like it.  I'll also say that in my opinion a double ought is not a true parlor - some would argue that a single ought/Concert is as big as you can be and call it a parlor.

      Here is my daugters single ought (24.5 scale) with an OM and a 000 - it is based on the 0-45 that Joan Baez played
