Tonk Bros introduces acoustic bass and new finish for its Parlour guitar

All Tonk Bros guitars are finished by hand and distressed using tried and tested staining and sanding techniques.

Tonk Bros (originally known as Nineboys) has unveiled a new short-scale acoustic bass (pictured), as well as a new finish for its entirely UK-made Parlour guitar.

The acoustic bass will be available in Tonk Bros’ established Trashed Black Finish, while the Parlour range benefits from the addition of the Trashed Burst finish.

The guitars continue to be made from Furniture Grade Birch Ply to give the distinctive Early Parlour Blues sound. The Birch Ply is PEFC and as such a more sustainable option.

Tonk Bros’ Parlour guitar is inspired by the pre-war guitars built by factories in the USA for some of the country's poorer guitarists. In many cases these instruments were badly finished to reduce costs, including brush marks in the finish, and typically used Birch to reduce costs. These original instruments are now highly sought after.

The short-scale 24 3/4" acoustic bass is fitted with quality open-gear machine heads and passive under-saddle pickup. All the body and neck components are specially machined using the latest CNC technology in the UK.

All Tonk Bros guitars are finished by hand and distressed using tried and tested staining and sanding techniques, so every guitar is unique to its owner.

There will also be a price increase for all of Tonk Bros’ instruments. Retail will increase from £399 to £499 as of 1st March, and trade prices will increase from £210 to £250 as of 1st April 2017.

Tonk Bros is on the lookout for retailers. If you’re interested in stocking its guitars, contact Mark Ellis on 07493 233339.
