Hi Corey,

I've gotten a couple questions about the parlor guitar you use on Catfish Blues.   Can you tell us a little bit about it?

1. Who made it?

2. Is it a slightly shorter scale?

3. What woods are used ... it is a beautiful guitar.

Any other details would be appreciated too.  Thanks!

Mike it is made by Bob Gernandt in Bryson City, NC.  Here is the link:


I really dig the guitar.  He doesn't produce a lot of instruments, as he is more interested in quality instead of quantity.  I first met Bob at Merlefest in 2010 and was hooked as soon as I played the guitar.   Check out his website and tell him that I sent you.

Hi Corey, I would like to know what kind of pickup is installed on your Parlor. I heard the sound on Youtube at JSFM 2015.
