Hello people.
You should take a look at this video.  First, an amazingly talented guitarist playing a Ken Parker archtop, and then KP himself there adjusting the guitar.

Blown away ... I am.

Does he buy the epoxy-glass fretboards from Parker or how come he has them on his guitars?

It's not glass epoxy, it's ebony.

I see. Looked similar to me, because of the missing position markers and the headstock.

+1  He is absolutely amazing.  Check out duets of Sylvain Luc and Bireli Lagrene, two French Monsters who are at the top of the game.  These guys are on another plane altogether!
