This is going to be the ultimate 7 string. Could it be a no mud future for the Parker 7?

I'll take mine with Dimarzios.

Yeah, Thomann, why not mess up the specs of a 4000€ guitar? ;)

I think Parker just might see me pay retail one more time for one of these.

Is this first run spoken for?

A question regarding the sevenstring:
Are there three switches? Or what is it that brakes out from the refined Fly/Maxxfly layout?
Nothing mentioned about it on the specs page:

The website also says 22 frets and .009" to .042" strings, where did they hide the missing frets and the 7th string? [:D]
Looks like a hasty copy & paste job.

Strings are 9-56.
The photo shows a midi model. The extra switch on that one is a bump switch for program up down. The piezo volume on midi would be a stacked pot with piezo volume on the top knob and midi volume on the lower knob.

A midi sevenstring? I thought about upgrading a sevenstring I have which already has the ghost system, but let me cite the Graphtech site:
"Currently, no manufacturer is producing a MIDI converter for more than six strings."

So are these especially made for you? Or is it just a photoshopped image and someone got the controls wrong?

I'd LOVE a midi seven!

I think the implication that the 7 was going to be available in midi was an error in communication.

It could be done if you didn't need the low string involved. Or any string for that matter. As for acoustic tones it doesn't matter how many strings there are.
