The Farida SM-58 parlour guitar is a stunning acoustic model which comes from Farida’s Soundboard series. With a compact body frame, it’s instantly comfortable to play for all types of guitarists and offers that well-rounded, bright acoustic tone we know and love in a parlour guitar.
It may have a smaller body, but the SM-58 has plenty of volume, making it ideal for playing either at home or in a recording studio. It also means that younger players can take advantage of its size as it is designed to feel adequate for players of all sizes. Another advantage of having a parlour acoustic is that it is easy to travel with.
Exotic, sturdy tonewoods are employed in the construction of the SM-58, beginning with the solid cedar body top that is then accompanied by solid A-grade pau ferro in the back and sides. This is not just visually appealing, but it also contributes to the guitar’s overall sound output, giving it that ability to powerfully project its sound. By having pau ferro in the back and sides it produces sparkling highs to deep lows, so every sound on the spectrum is well-translated.
The neck is made from mahogany and is joined by a dark, ebony fingerboard which complements the sunburst finish of the guitar body. Ebony is a very hard wood, but feels great beneath your fingertips while you play.
Additional appointments of the Farida SM-58 include the vintage gold 3 in-line machine head tuners emerging from its headstock as well as the incredibly robust rosewood bridge fitted to the lower end of the body to boost intonation and sustain.
Various materials are used in the body binding and soundhole rosette to add a beautifully embellished finishing touch to the guitar. We have included a guitar case to help protect the SM-58 for years to come.
