    My first Parker arrived at the shop and it's beautiful so I'd like to share it with you guys. Enjoy :metal:

    Oh my god Nick... I've really been considering Berklee as a potential college lately, if I get in you're going to have to promise me one thing. Make sure I don't spend my entire college fund on gear...

    My reaction exactly upon popping open the case for the first time. Truly stunning.

    Haha, I'll do my best ;)

    Yeah they're really perfect guitars. They have almost every cool feature imaginable. Ken Parker was a genius and these reflect it in every way. I used to own two of these several years ago and they were amazing. They definitely are better looking in person and have a special feel to them.

    However they of course are expensive and the shapes not for everyone. And yes, I know they don't make a 7 :(

    :agreed:

    Cool. Yeah it's the finish usually only found on the Adrian Belew $9500 model. Looks really cool. In some lighting it almost looks molten, like lava is about to come out of it. Sort of ruby-ish at times.

    I just love the curves on those Parker bodies. Such flowing lines. And this tangerine colour looks nice on them too.

    Most likely costs an arm and a leg...

    ...but worth every penny I'm sure.

    You and JJ are welcome anytime bro. I'm sure I'll have some Parkers in stock. This is just the first of 6 pieces I ordered.

    Haha yeah. The Parker actually comes with this device that you can attach to the headstock so that it will hang properly on hangers, I just liked the horizontal look anyways for this photo shoot :)
