Wm. B. Tilton

This Bay State model is named after an early pioneer in the development and sale of parlour type guitars, William Tilton. Parlour guitars were extremely popular at the close of the 19th century and Bay State was the leader in producing these types of instruments. Although this modern instrument is small and extremely comfortable to play its' sound is much more "in the present" and it can hold its' own playing alongside any type of guitar that is sold today. For another example of this model go here. For the Kiley Evans Signature 13 fret Tilton look here. BRAND NEW....For the late 1700's look, go here for the Tilton Renaissance!
