From Preston Thompson --
"Preston Thompson Size 2 Parlor Guitars are based upon a vintage 1892 model owned by Preston. That particular Parlor guitar was built for gut strings, so when the Thompson Size 2 was developed we changed the wood thicknesses and bracing to accommodate steel strings. The Thompson 2-MM with its mahogany back, sides and top is our version of one of the very first production steel string guitars ever made.
The popularity of these “Little Big Guitars” was immediate. They are so fun to play you simply cannot put them down. Their fun factor may only be surpassed by their sweet tone and incredible volume... All of them have been impressive guitars, each with a unique voice suited to a variety of playing styles, from blues and ragtime to folk and finger style."Mahogany Top Mahogany Back and Sides Natural Satin Finish Ebony Fingerboard and Bridge Ebony Backstrip Ebony End Pin Figured Ebony Headstock Overlay Size 2 Scalloped Bracing Pattern - Adirondack,Pre War Style Tortoise Body Binding Black/White Top Purfling White/Black/White Single Ring Rosette Tortoise Tail Wedge Tortoise Heel Cap Slotted Headstock Restoration Relic Brass Bell End Tuning Machines Light Gauge Strings Tortoise Style 2 Pickguard White MOP Side Position Markers Ivoroid Dot Inlays Bone Nut and Saddle 1 3/4" Nut Width 2 5/16" String Spacing 24.9" Scale Length Made in Sisters, Oregon
