Who wants a "Parker 7 String" Poll
« Reply #30 on: December 12, 2005, 03:00:15 AM »
just so you know, i haven't finished beating the horse to death yet (figuratively speaking, as i would never beat a horse for real)...

i'm conducting a poll among seven stringers (margin or error is pretty high, though, 17% right now):

44% of seven string players said they would buy a parker fly (usa) seven string, 35% said they would buy a p-series seven string ($1000 street value or less), 35% said they would buy neither, 18% were non-commital.  none of them believed that parker would make one, though.

if 27% of seven stringers bought a fly seven, would it be a big enough market to consider production?  frankly, i was surprized at the level of intrest; i doubt anywhere near 44% of guitarists in general own a parker fly.

i have not tried to bias these people in the least, ...yet.  from the comments i got (unsolicited - i just wanted the numbers), it seems a lot of players are very badly misinformed about parker fly guitars.  some people, but not most, even think they are made of plastic!  [:0]

i know you will all say that i'm crazy, but i dare you to do similar polls.  no matter the results, i'd like to get more data.

ibanez mostly, some guys are playing esp or schecter, along with some lesser known brands or well known brands' lesser known lines.

not to trash other brands, but schecter diamond series are among the crumbiest guitars i ever demo'ed.

i'm not joking when i say i'd really like a seven string with the quality i'm used to in my parkers.  my main seven is a usa handmade bc rich.  i have a usa handmade six string bc rich too...that i never ever play out.  is it a bad guitar?  heck no, but it's worth a lot of money, and my parkers are much more playable, easier to set up (not that they need it), and super convenient.

nothing beats a parker fly in my book, except maybe a seven string.  i got all excited when someone told me parker had a custom shop ... naturally, the first thing on my mind was a seven string, not a new color nor a cool new wood.  the color option is kind of like a kick in the groin to me, because i'm pretty much colorblind anyway (although i see green just fine).  a cool new wood would be great, except i'm perfectly happy with poplar or mahogany.

don't get me wrong, i'm very grateful parker makes parkers!   [:D]

i guess i just had mega-expectations concerning a parker custom shop.\\


edit: guess it was one of those days, sorry.  'not to trash other brands, but ...' sorry, i did trash schecter, but it wasn't my point.  [:)]

 As much as I'd like a seven-string as well, the poll question that needs to be asked is... "How much would you pay for one?", without that answer, Parker is not going to even consider building one. I think about US$4000(street) is about right, but I think actual pricing would be higher.

Taylor 810CE

2005 Parker Fly Classic, transparent cherry.
2006 Parker Fly Custom, majik blue.

 You could spend forever picking the right amp for each string.

I know for a fact that I, and whole bunch of other players at sevenstring.org, would be all over this.  A Parker 7 string wouldn't be just another guitar, it would be the Second Coming of freaking Christ.

Count me in. [:D] $4000 would be reasonable, $5000 not unheard of. Combine this with the AB Sig and all bets are off!!!... [:0][;)]
