Well, I went looking for an auditorium-bodied guitar and after trying everything at Guitar Center, I came home with this...

This was the best sounding guitar in the place with this body style. I tried Martin, Tak, Yamaha, and nothing compared to the Parkwood PW320-M.

This guitar has a solid sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, solid mahogany neck, Grover tuners. The action is superb and the intonation is spot on... nice axe. I have been looking for a long time to add the perfect auditorium-body to my collection.

Tonight, I am a happy player.:drool:

But... it's so... BIG! :p Never heard of Parkwood before, but that's a good reason why you should always try things out in person if possible. You never know what might surprise you. Nice looking guitar.

Parkwood is a California-based operation that is manufacturing guitars in China. They are high-quality guitars made with top-shelf materials and the setups are done in the USA. I have never played a bad one. I have been aware of them for a few years and this is the first one added to my collection. After two days, I do believe it has already become my favorite guitar. It is the tone of it more than anything. What a sweet sound.

Hey guys,

It is in real life, I feel like the pictures on-line really don't do it justice! It really is a sleek and sexy guitar, kinda reminds me of a stealth bomber good.

Very nice.

Yes, and it sounds great. I will be recording some over the summer (album) and this guitar will be used heavily in the project... along with my Martin dreadnaughts.

Very nice. There's nothing like the feeling of discovering The One.

I posted some videos on YouTube to compare the Parkwood PW320M and Martin DX1 guitar since they are in the same price-range. Six videos, three songs, recorded on the "FLIP" camcorder and the Zoom Q3 video recorder with "studio quality sound" (according to Zoom's product website).

what a beautiful instrument it is! Huge though... I doubt my tiny hands would even be able to shape a chord properly.

I really love this guitar. It just sounds better all the time.
