Default Anyone play a Rainsong Parlour Guitar?

I am considering buying a Parlour-sized guitar. I have been looking at Larrivees, because it appears that they are a decent value, but I found this Rainsong Parlour at Elderly. Unfortunately, it has laminate back/sides. Has anyone played one?

Not played a rainsong but I did play a lav and to tell the trouth I did`nt like it. Tanglewood is not a name of High end reputaition but there parlour is half the lav price and to my ears much better, if the neck had been wider at the nut it would be with me now.
Give it a go it may act as a good referance piont if nothing els.
there are two 1 solid body 1 lam back and sides.

Thanks for the tip. Tanglewood looks like a new company.

I had a Rainsong Parlor briefly. It was fine, but I wasn't at all impressed with the feel of it. The string spacing was tight and the sound wasn't anything special. Still, if you needed the more or less indestructible features, it was fine. It's quite a bit bigger than a Larrivee parlor.

I'm guessing that there are at least 100 people on this forum that own Larivee Parlor guitars. These are truly amazing. I LOVE my 'hog/spruce parlor. Although, they were a better buy before Larrivee upgraded them.

Default Aria AP Deluxe

The Aria AP deluxe parlour guitar has had some pretty good reviews in comparison to other entry level parlour guitars - Solid topped Tanglewood acoustic guitars that I have played have all sounded great too although I haven't played a parlour sized guitar by Tanglewood
