Parker P8ETB Acoustic Guitar
« on: March 27, 2012, 01:52:16 PM »
Hello!

I just acquired a Parker P8ETB!  I've been looking for one of these for years and finally found a used model in good condition.  The only problem is that the guitar didn't come with a case...

Does anyone out there know where I can purchase a case for it?

I contacted Parker directly and there response was:

"No, I'm afraid not.  We sold the last 15 or so of these guitars without cases actually as we ran out as well, sorry."

If you don't know where to get a Parker case, does anyone know what else will work?

THANK YOU!
WCP

Hmm... if Parker doesn't know anything about it, that's not a good sign. The company has changed hands and the factory moved I think twice since those guitars were made.

Anyway, looking at this picture http://s444.photobucket.com/albums/qq170/telecaster55/Parker%20acoustic/?action=view¤t=IMG_0264.jpg , would a standard dreadnought case work?

I just saw on ebay an ad for 8 acoustic cases, don't know what will fit your model. Look for "PARKER PAB ACOUSTIC GUITAR BASS HARDSHELL CASE". Says it is for a PAB acoustic bass, but it looks a lot like the one that I just got with my PA22 yesterday (yeah!)

Mine is in a Martin dreadnaught case.  It's a little tight.  I suggest just taking the guitar down to your local emporium and trying out a few cases. It's really not that exotic.

I knew that (the right) dreadnought case would work.
