The very first "real" guitar I owned was a parlor guitar. My mom bought it at Sears and it came with a cheap nylon gig bag, pitch pipe, 2 sets of strings, and a Mel Bay book. I played that for a while til my dad got me my first electric guitar when I was 15. I still have the electric guitar but I don't recall what happened to the parlor guitar. I'd like to get another one to noodle around with.
