Yes I agree. I asked about it in another section. I am seriously think of having one made myself. I would buy the Nitefly neck which I think is a little better for an acoustic as it is slightly thicker front to back and slight narrower. Kiso Klein make acoustics with bolt on necks. I would go for a bolt on neck acoustic if it was a Parker neck.[:)]

Emerald Guitars uses Parker fingerboards on their guitars, and the guitars are made of carbon.  So, it is somewhat related to Parker...but not reallly.  8^)

i have heard many mixed reviews of the emerald guitars.  i don't know if a parker acoustic would be totally made of carbon.  i was imagining something with a wood top and neck for sure.  no idea what the market would be for a parker acoustic though.  parker electrics sell like hot cakes around here, but i've seen rainsong acoustics, aluminum martins, and even ovations sit on shelves for years.  i, myself, am not a fan of the rainsongs or the ovations, and i think the martins are outrageously high priced for the level of workmanship and materials...but that's just me.

as for a parker acoustic, i would definately have to try it out before i'd tell you if i wanted one.  but i would definately try one out! [;)]

Well composite material seems to come to mind oftem times when the name Parker is heard. I'm not sure if a true Parker would be an all composite material guitar like a rainsong or an emerald, because the current Parker Fly is a guitar made of wood reinforced by the composite material. I would expect something similar for an acoustic.
