We have a guitar in our showroom that we affectionately refer to as the OAT or, very occasionally, the OATY and we often get asked why.

The guitar is question is a Catherwood parlour guitar which, much to our astonishment, we’ve had in the showroom for a little while now. The reason for it’s name is that it is made from Celtic sacred woods – the oak, ash, and thorn – with a yew finger board (hence the occasional OATY).

It is an amazing sounding instrument which packs a punch belying it’s petite size. You can check out more details on it here or simply book an appointment to try it out for yourself.
