Using Martin's method of size classification, Vintage's 14-inch-wide V1800N is strictly speaking a 00, as opposed to a true parlour. But the guitar's slender, svelte spruce/rosewood lines have more in common with the latter, especially given the inclusion of a 12-fret slot-head neck.
It's warm voice is probably helped by the rosewood back and sides. While this tonal character may be something of a disadvantage for earthy blues workouts, it's a distinct asset if you're looking for sonic versatility from a small-bodied instrument.
The V1800N goes beyond the often one-dimensional limitations of many a parlour guitar, and has the ability to compete in folk-size realms.
