It's still chilly here in the Northeast and sitting by the fire and playing guitar is still the thing to do. The perfect instrument to cozy up with in such a situation would be this gorgeous little 0-SP parlor guitar by Huss & Dalton. The 0-SP is a short scale, 12-fret, parlor-sized instrument. Play this guitar for just a few minutes and you won't want to give it up.

The specs for this instrument include: a body that is 13-1/2" wide, 18-7/8" long and 4-1/8deep; an Engleman Spruce top with light Adirondack Spruce bracing; back and sides made from lovely, straight-grained Indian Rosewood; a 12-fret Mahogany neck with H&D's Low Profile shape; a 24.9" string scale; an Ebony fretboard with a 1.75" bone nut; an Ebony pyramid-style bridge with a bone saddle and 2-5/16" string spacing; a slotted headstock with Rosewood overlay; and side-mounted Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons.

The 0-SP's small body, light weight (3.2 lbs.) and short string scale make for a guitar that is extremely comfortable to play. The slightly elongated body shape and 12-fret geometry also give this guitar more power and responsiveness than you would expect from such a diminutive instrument. The soft V-shaped low profile neck is a joy for smaller hands and measures .82" deep at the first fret. It is impeccably setup for ease of play with with 12th fret string heights of 5.5/64" on the low E side and 4/64" on the high E side.

This is an exceptionally intimate instrument to play and it willingly responds with a voice that is often characterized as well balanced, sweet and warm, but it also offers more headroom than such a small instrument should possess. Listen to the brief sound sample I have provided and I think you will concur.

While built in 2012, this guitar appears to have been completed only recently. I cannot find any flaws of any significance and the frets remain spotless. It comes in it's similarly mint Huss & Dalton/TKL case.

A new example of this guitar runs for $4,400 but this near new 2012 example can be had for quite a bit less. Make this guitar yours and she will quickly become your favorite couch body. A fabulous little parlor guitar indeed!
