The only thing I know about Parker guitars is that they are awful to look at. Maybe you could play with your eyes closed like Johnny Winter!

I have a pm20 pro right here. It's gorgeous and it sounds better than anything I've ever played in 22 years. The new ones have the "non parker" headstock which may cause the foolish to think the look was improved but nothing could be farther from the truth.

Plays like a dream, and the coil tapping actually works properly. They don't sound like "half a humbucker" at all.

I was looking at a left handed version of this guitar on Ebay they seem to be on offer at the moment due to being discontinued I think? they do retail at nearly a $1000 so $450 seems like a bargain, they also have some good reviews. smile.gif

interesting looking guitar.

i dont know anything about that series, my brother has a night fly and say what you want it plays amazing.

lots of these 'new' guitars maybe advertised by saying they've improved this or that but IMO Parker are the only company that have really pushed it forward and it shows, otherwise you might as well play a Fender or a Gibson....

I played it unamplified yesterday and I was surprised at how good it felt. I might just have to pick this bad boy up. Problem is that I need another guitar like I need a hole in my head........ tongue.gif tongue.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

I really is a disease......this guitar thing....... tongue.gif

I think NoSkill might be starting a support group. If he isn't, he should. Ask him privately why this is so smile.gif

Those things are like $2k......... blink.gif WOW!!! I didn't realize they were that spendy......that is the bolt on model too..... huh.gif


I won't be getting one of those anytime soon. UNLESS......NoSkill decides to send me his AxeFx Ultra......then I could take the money I was gonna spend on that and buy a Dragonfly. Ball is in your court now Tom......or the Puck is in your zone as you Canadians might say....... laugh.gif tongue.gif

I've been told a lot of nice comments about this brand lately. I really want to try one of those, but I didn't see one Parker guitar here in Argentina yet
