Re: Springs, shmings

Great job @billy! I bet finishes like that would have been popular choices back when Parker was still alive.

Re: “What’s this worth?” thread

Reading about the ridiculous prices that seem to be normal on Reverb, I am beginning to wonder if I should list my custom Parker for USD 15k (or 17.5k with backup spring included). :lol: I just failed to sell a pristine condition Two Notes Torpedo Studio for EUR 500 via an Austrian portal. Reverb li...

Re: Parker Fly hardtail bridge

@Marko Ursin's work looks like the closest thing to a Fly I've seen since official production stopped.
Utterly impressive! :shock:

Re: Parker DF845 Custom, Project Name "Toxic", Serial Number "NX-01", 2011

I don't expect anything to go wrong and I take good care of my gear in general, but I'm also aware that stuff can go wrong. A Parker definitely isn't a guitar you can take to any old shop when in need of repair. It's my only electric guitar and shipping it around the world and back for weeks or even...

Re: Parker DF845 Custom, Project Name "Toxic", Serial Number "NX-01", 2011

My preferences haven't changed at all. Linear frequency response, definition, punch, and sustain with unique design and light weight (if possible). Ideally from a company that is constantly experimenting and innovating. Not exactly a long list of candidates. The Music Man Majesty is an option, espec...

Re: Parker DF845 Custom, Project Name "Toxic", Serial Number "NX-01", 2011

As much as I love this guitar I can't escape the facts. The brand is gone and so is any chance of future variants or a backup of equal capability and quality. And while it is still in pristine condition any potential repairs down the line are inevitably prone to be both unpredictably time consuming ...

Re: Merry Christmas 2021

Well... I have no camera that deserves the word, no suitable background or greenscreen, no lighting equipment, plus an ugly mug anyway. :lol: So I thought I'll make a simple animation. Still took half a day from idea to completion since I only do video work maybe once or twice a year. Why do nice id...

Merry Christmas 2021

It's not Parker related. It doesn't even have a guitar in it. But I'll post it anyway. :D

Best wishes for a relaxing holiday and a very happy new year! :!:



(It does have a Ukulele solo though.)

Re: Parker DF845 Custom, Project Name "Toxic", Serial Number "NX-01", 2011

Hey billy ! I had forgotten that you visited the factory during this build. I'm sure it being a highlight wasn't much of an effort with a flashy color like that. I remember carrying it across half a large music store for giving an amp a test drive and it left no head unturned. I don't know whether t...

Parker DF845 Custom, Project Name "Toxic", Serial Number "NX-01", 2011

In 2008 I bought my first Parker and joined the official forum. I enjoyed posts about different colors, models, and variants a lot. Discussing the details of rare custom builds was even more fun. Topics documenting the creation of a custom build were definitely the highlights though as they invited ...

I've been missing the Parker community ever since the official forum disappeared overnight. So it's about time I start interacting with what's left of it! :D I'm happy to report I am still alive and so is my Custom DF845. https://dreamshade.net/foren/flyclone/halloween2021a.png (Photo taken at a lit...
