Are Parker acoustics being discontinued?
« on: September 29, 2010, 07:40:16 PM »
Every dealer I look at say that Parker acoustics are discontinued.  Sometimes that means that they stopped carry the model, but I can't find anyone that sells new Parker acoustics.  Are they all being discontinued?

I have played one of Parker's acoustics (can't remember the model) several times at one of the guitar shops I frequently visit.  It was a fine instrument at it's price point.  Unusual appearance/excellent tone and playability!

Well, that really, really stinks.  I have a Parker P6E, and its spoiled me for all other acoustics!  Their design is definitely different, but they have a wonderful tone unlike anything else out there.  Its a shame that they aren't making them anymore.  I imagine its because the could sell enough of them.  Many acoustic players tend to be more traditional.  I'm sure they would have liked Parkers if they had a chance to play one, but most places never had them.  I hope someday that Parker brings them back, and finds a way to make the more traditional players to take notice of them.

It is a shame.  When I said it has great tone and playability, that is in the context of my own guitar collection which contains primarily high tier stuff.
