Imperial Valley Guitar Co. presents our 2018 collection
Many of you have been asking when our new 2018 models would be available. Well, good news! They’re finished up and ready to go out to their new homes. The new pictures are done and they’re up here on the site. We’ve upgraded several features and we’ve also been able to reduce prices a bit. We’re real proud of our new babies and hope you’re going to adopt some of them. AND we have have a whole new line of wood and metal body resonator guitars. We’ve always carried one or two resonators, like the much loved little Parlorators, but we’ve decided to go all in with resonators, because we like ’em, so we’re spinning off the whole deal into a new line we call Royall. Take a look and see what you think.
We actually have 31 new models. We’re kind of way into this resonator thing. We tried to cover every possible permutation (except, no doubt, the exact permutation that you want). The one thing we’re not making is standard single cones, on account of you can buy them easily enough already and we’re not really interested in participating in the inevitable race to the bottom of the price/quality heap. So we’re making parlor resonators with both wood and metal bodies, tricones with both wood and metal bodies, including the wood body with brass top Frankenstein model. We’re making cutaway tricones too, metal only.
We also made some square neck tricones this time because we got quite a few requests for them last year, and…uh…I wanted one myself. And we made some more wood bodied Triolians, because they’re cool that’s why. Triolians have a body somewhere between a parlor and a full size Duolian size.
Oh wait I forgot, we did too make about a dozen full sized Duolian style single cones so we could etch palms trees on them.
