The new Rancher Penguin Parlor’s all feature a laminated maple body with a solid spruce wood top, providing a rich acoustic sound with the laminate helping to reduce feedback when plugged in.

Each guitar has a mahogany neck with 12-inch radius laurel wood fretboards, 20 vintage-style frets and pearloid ‘Neo-Classic’ thumbnail inlays. All models come with Gretsch style gold hardware, pickguard and binding, and a laurel wood bridge.

A Fishman Presys III pickup and preamp system is appointed with a built-in tuner and equalisation, allowing players to easily dial in a range of different tones to suit any situation.

As visually beautiful as it is sonically, the new range Rancher Penguin Parlor is perfect for those who want to add some style to their setup on stage or in the studio.

The new collection of guitars are available for purchase and will retail for AU$1,299.00.
