We're thrilled to now be carrying Norman Guitars, a manufacturer we've had on our list for some time now. Normans are built in Quebec, Canada, and are some of the most affordable North American guitars currently available, with great sound and style to boot. This lovely little B18 Parlor has the look and feel of a mid-century parlor guitar, with a small upper bout, short scale length, and a 12-fret neck, but the construction and playability are geared towards the modern player. A picturesque cherry burst finish on the solid Sitka spruce top adds some classic aesthetics to this old-school guitar, and the back and sides are built from layered Canadian wild cherry, giving the guitar both a great look as well as improving its durability. Best of all, the Norman B18 includes a Q-Discrete active pickup system with onboard volume and tone knobs, allowing you to take the guitar out to play live sets and open mics. Included in the price is a Denver Folklore Center gig bag manufactured by Henry Heller.
