    This has been a long time coming but I'm so excited to finally say I now own another one of my dream guitars, and it's everything I'd hoped it would be and then some, I haven't been able to put it down since I got it. This is in so many ways, a truly amazing instrument and I couldn't be any happier with it. Cell phone pics will have to do for the moment unfortunately:

    very cool, congrats!

    what pickups are those? I don't think I've seen a double-screw pickup set from Duncan before.

    I'm actually not sure, I think they're a custom set made specifically for the Parkers, but I can't say for certain. I'm not normally a Seymour Duncan guy at all and had planned before I even got the guitar to replace them, but I actually really like them and might end up keeping them if Lundgren isn't able to build me the set I inquired about for it.

    Wonderful guitar in all specs. Color wise is far out there! Congrats!

    Always wondered how do those pickups get regulated since they're tab/ears absent...

    ^^ the outer screws pass through the pickup and into the body (IIRC)

    The spec sheet lists it as "tangerine", but it's so responsive to lighting, sometimes it's hard to tell. What I do know is that it's beautiful and it needs to be on more Parker builds.

    You mean the outer pole screws? Doesn't that defeat their original purpose?

    Normally, these are not guitars that I am familiar with nor do I look twice at but this one, is really nice! That colour is beautiful! Looks like a lot of neat features on it.

    Well done and congrats!

    Looks amazing! I remember seeing a photo of Misha's one and the 7th string was too thick to fit through the bridge. Also what phone do you have? I wish I could take photos even half that good.

    +1 to that. Kustom Candy Tangerine has always been my favorite Parker color. After I sold my '08 tangerine Mojo Fly, I couldn't pass up replacing it with a '97 Deluxe in the same color.

    For the love of the tangerine gods, OP, put a demo of that thing on YouTube, and let us know how you feel about the Graphtech saddles and Acoustiphonic preamp sounds.

    Sweet! also, by any chance at all, that rg looks eerily similar to one Ben Eller has. Was it bought from/inspired by his?
