Overview

Longtime T.S.O.L. guitarist Ron Emory has infused some truly distinctive Fender acoustic guitars with his years of SoCal-punk cred and expertise. Among the latest and greatest is the new Ron Emory "Loyalty" Parlor model, in which he has combined his favorite features from several guitars in his large collection to create a small-bodied and eminently affordable model.

The Ron Emory "Loyalty" Parlor guitar features the classic parlor body shape and is available in two versions-one with a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck and a vintage-style sunburst finish reminiscent of the 1930s; the other with an all-ash body, maple neck and butterscotch-stain finish resembling his '52 Telecaster. Both versions feature quartersawn scalloped "X" bracing, elegant herringbone body binding and rosette, soft "V" neck profile and aged neck binding, rosewood fingerboard with diamond inlays and 12th-fret "Loyalty" logo, 19 large vintage-style frets, 1970s-style Fender headstock, three-ply pickguard, vintage-style rosewood "Viking" bridge with Graphtech Nubone compensated saddle, and open-gear tuners.

Comments about Fender Ron Emory Loyalty Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

I received the Loyalty Parlor guitar as a Christmas gift. I had been in the market for a small bodied acoustic for a while before finding this guitar on the Fender website. I looked low and high for reviews of this guitar, and the ones that I found stated that it was a well-built guitar for a great price. That was enough for me. Oh, and the amazing blonde finish was a major factor in my decision as well. I was never able to see this guitar in person prior to ordering it from Guitar Center. I have to say that the gamble paid off! It is a great sounding guitar. The tone and playability are fantastic. Every note rings and chords sound amazing. It doesn't matter if you are finger picking or using a pick, the guitar sounds great. The guitar sounded pretty good right out of the box, but it really opened up after a little strumming. It has only gotten better in the week since I first played it. I have trouble putting it down. It is pretty loud for a small guitar, which is a major bonus. It arrived in great shape with only a few tiny imperfections, but nothing at all to worry about. I am completely happy with this guitar. I had originally planned for it to be a traveling guitar or an nice alternative to my other acoustic ( Martin 000-X1), but I must admit that this little stunner is my new primary instrument. An all around great guitar. I highly recommend it.

Comments about Fender Ron Emory Loyalty Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

I received the Loyalty Parlor guitar as a Christmas present. I had been in the marked for a small bodied acoustic for a while, but it wasn't until I stumbled onto this guitar on the Fender website. I looked low and high for reviews, and the ones that I found stated that it was a well-built guitar for a reasonable price. I was intrigued. Of course, the blond finish played a major factor in my decision. I was not able to get my hands on one of these guitars before I decided to order one from Guitar Center. I must say that the gamble completely paid off! It is a great guitar. It is even more stunning in person. The photos do not do it justice. The playability and tone of this guitar are amazing. Every note rings and every chord sounds amazing. Whether you are finger picking or using a pick, the guitar sounds fantastic. The guitar sounded great right out of the box, but the guitar really opened up after a little bit of strumming. It is pretty loud for such a small instrument, which is a major bonus. I had originally planned on using this guitar as a traveling guitar or a nice alternative to my other acoustic (Martin 000-x1), but I must admit that this blonde beauty is now my primary acoustic. I highly recommend this guitar.

Great guitar

Comments about Fender Ron Emory Loyalty Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased this guitar two months ago after six years without a guitar.Parlors are a very inviting guitars for playing around the house,at the cabin or in small venues.The quality is excellent exceeding the guitars price finish is perfect and the styling and attention to detail is downright sexy.Import fenders are great quality at a great price. I and my family are enjoying the time spent with it and with a new baby on the way in March we are looking forward to many years of enjoyment with it. The staff at guitar center were great with special ordering it for me and it arrived in less than the time predicted they were even cool with me returning the special order case when I found a decent used one locally.It would be great to see this guitar on display at the store>I originally found it at a small local shop and stopped in to guitar center to compare prices.
