Thank you. Well I tested Parkers a lot in the setup dept before I got mine and I was always accidentally turning down the master vol when I played, so when I got mine I told them not to drill the master vol hole and I just secured the pot in the electronics cavity.  So the end result, I just have a vol for humbuckers, a tone knob and a vol for piezos...

Wthanks WKC, All I have to do to make it look new again is apply a coat of tung oil, leave it sitting for awhile, then rub the oil out with a cloth.  It then shines with a deep rich glow for months afterword.

Fretboard dots? On a Parker?
Strange. But nice piece of wood.

I know, the dots are not everyone's cup of tea.  I found them to be very helpful when playing modes/scales.  It was very scary to drill the holes in the fretboard not knowing exactly how they would turn out, but I was very pleased with the end result.

Stunning guitar. I love it.

Did you seal the fretboard back up with something ?

Thanks for the assorted compliments on the guitar.
Bill- I used a small bit of black glue to seal around the dots.  The dots are the micro pearl dots from StuMac.

Here is a shot of the back, which was painted black with a cherry metal flake, looks kind of like looking into a galaxy in the night sky :)
