It will be impossible to find the carbon fiber shrubbery to complete the project.

Re: Beat up Classic on the Bay

I watched that guitar on Craigslist for a year for only $50 less than that auction price. Ha! Check out his other sale items! All the guitars are on Denver CL. But the Cheeto is a true measure of the seller imho....only $650! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Cheeto-Cheetoh-Shaped-Like-Cthulhu-HP-Lo...

Re: A Tale of Two Archtops: Parker Guitars archtops and Ken Parker archtops

I’ve run into a couple sellers and owners through the years that didn’t know the difference between a Parker archtop and the Ken Parker archtop. Not unlike knowing the difference between a Linda Manzer wedge guitar and one with a Manzer wedge design. If you’ve never seen her Pikasso it’s worth a loo...

Re: Parker Fly DIY Kits

I’ve seen many Chinese Parker’s over the years from kits to complete guitars and not one will ever equal the original (or the Indonesian Parker’s).
So I just waste money on beer and women and am much happier in the long run.... :D

Re: Parker DF Cousins.

Owning a Parker simplifies life since there are few interesting guitars I can afford or would really want. Some of the Boden, Tueffel models etc are exceptions but not enough to spend money on. Guitar center’s wall of guitars is pretty but holds no allure. With a Parker all I need are strings and a ...

As prices go up, I sometimes consider selling the Pro that sits unplayed in its case most of the time....but no, it would be wrong, and only sadness and regret would remain.

Re: Fly Deluxe Scratched

Yes Marvin, thanks for the info.
I did not know Korg ever had any involvement with Parker.

I wonder when (or if) silk screens were used?
I should have forked over the $25 for one set when I had a chance.

Re: Fly Deluxe Scratched

The serial number were INT's (dry transfers) not silk screen during my time at Parker I have always wondered how the serial numbers were done since the font was different. I saw logo silk screens for sale when the final inventory was being sold, I incorrectly mentioned the serial number when I mean...

Re: PM24 Pro

My ‘08 PM20 Pro has a 3x3 headstock and a phenolic neck (composite?) it plays every bit as well as the fly for speed and slinky feel.
It’s the only guitar I ever bought sight unseen from guitar center. A touch over 5.5 lbs, black as night and shiny as a hearse in the sun.

PM24 Pro

Since I haven’t posted here for awhile and I was surfing Reverb and came across this listing, I had to ask...Am I correct in thinking this is a poor mans Mojo? Cool piezo and trem option. Seems like a fair price too. If I didn’t have a Pro already it would be nice addition. https://reverb.com/item/3...

Re: Love this site!

The worst thing about my custom shop DF is I no longer have GAS. I can look at other beautiful guitars and appreciate the looks, but I don't want to buy. Notes I think of guitar centers wall of guitars this way these days....and have for a number of years... Beautiful to look at, nice to hold but w...

Re: 1998 Gold Fly

I like my gold deluxe now even though in the beginning I wasn’t real fond of it.
It was the only Parker I could afford and actually find locally when I bought it.
