I bought this guitar a few years ago. It’s a Seagull Grand parlor guitar. Back in the 19th Century guitars were quite different animals than they are today. First of all they were all strung with gut string which was brittle, but there was not as much tension on the neck and body. Spanish style guitars had slightly larger bodies than the common household guitar that was commonly known as a parlor guitar. No one has parlors in their home any longer. A parlor is what we call a living room or family room. Before TV and radio, folks would gather in the parlor for conversation and entertainment or just to read a book.
