Charlton 

"Charlton" parlour size guitar. 
 
I was always being asked to build a small parlour guitar and, after finding some nice sets of spruce which were too small for classical guitars, decided the time had come and the "Charlton" was born. 
 
The Charlton is a 12 fret to the body parlour-size guitar with an X braced top and a slotted headstock. The guitar is designed for use with light gauge strings and is optimised for fingerstyle playing, although it is used by musicians for all playing styles. This instrument is particularly suited to small rooms and also is a wonderful guitar for recording, having exactly the right balance between bass and treble. 
 
I have also designed a version of this guitar with a lattice bracing specifically optimised for nylon strings, the Prestbury parlour guitar (see below).
