Favilla Parlour Guitar 1940’sFavilla
Here's a vintage Favilla acoustic parlor guitar from the 1940's. This little WWII era sweetie sure is one ultra vibey, mojo-laden tone monster. When you think of a bad ass blues machine, this should be the image that comes to your mind. It has that bone dry resonance and warm, smokey voice that only comes from decades of relentless playing. This baby has seen some action in the trenches and it shows! There are plenty of small dings, chips, impressions, scratches, etc. There are also several repaired cracks and the bridge appears to be a replacement. The neck is a medium, soft "V" profile. The back, neck, sides and top all appear to be mahogany. They really built these things right back in the old days. The celluloid tortoise shell guard is the coolest thing ever and just adds to the skanky, bar fly appearance. This little sweetie is a tone machine and is ready for another couple of decades of faithful service. Oh, and 2 lb. 6 oz. for those that are keeping score.
