Columbia 1930's Parlor (blues) guitar in Seattle WA area for $195

I apologize to Joe, the seller of this item, for posting his phone number without his permission - it has now been deleted. Please do not call him if you got the number from earlier. - Jim C


This looks like a nice 1930's parlor guitar for fingerstyle or Blues playing. The seller, Joe, told me it is still available so you might want to check it out. Looks like the major issues have been already repaired and it should be a good player.

The thing to look for on these old parlor acoustics is solid woods like Mahogany, Spruce, Koa, Rosewood (Birch is okay too tho not as desireable) and glued on peg bridges (vs. seperate bridge and metal tailpiece). When you find one with those elements for a good price in decent condition and with playable action you've got a winner.

Columbia parlor guitar built in the mid 1930's. It's in nice condition and plays very well. All solid birch top, back, and sides. Ebony bridge with bone saddle and nut. New frets. There are a few age cracks on the top which have been professionally repaired. The cracks are barely noticeable. There are two small cracks on the back which are also well repaired. The original case is included. This guitar has great tone. If your looking for a good old blues guitar this is it.

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
