Custom Koa
« on: October 20, 2005, 02:43:44 PM »
I just took delivery of my signature Parker Fly!!

First off, I would like to thank John Vitale for working so hard to make this a reality! John has been there through every single stage of this development, and without him, this would not have been possible! Johnny, you are the man!!!!!!

I would also like to thank all of the great people who worked on this guitar and rushed and pushed to make this happen as well. Patience DEFINITELY paid off big time.

Several months back, I had posted that I was working with Parker to develop this guitar, but I will give you the specs again:

   Solid Koa Body
   Basswood Neck
   Gold Hardware
   Gold Bridge
   Brand New Open Back Sperzel triple lock tuners
   Custom Seymour Duncan Humbucker (only one pickup)
   Clear coat finish

I wanted an extremely streamlined Parker for stage use....something that would have incredible sustain, lots of tone (thanks to the Koa), and very easy to maintain in the real world (I am SOOOOO glad that Parker has gotten away from ribbon tracing electronics and proprietary circuit boards!!!! Try dealing with that on tour in a hurry, and you quickly realize that this idea forces you to have many MANY backups in case something craps out.....and it always does on tour[;)]).

This guitar will become my main instrument on the upcoming tour, and I will be posting images next week!!!

For everyones personal edification I run my Parkers through the following:

Sennheiser Wireless Unit
ISP Noise Reduction
Too Many effects!!!
ISP Noise Reduction
Randall RM4 Pre Amp System with modded modules
Randall R2/50 Power Amp with NOS Genelec Tubes (WAYYYY TOO MUCH $$$ FOR THESE TUBES, BUT RIDUCULOUSLY KILLER SOUNDING)
Randall 4x12 Cab's (2)
