Parker Private Reserve Guitars
« on: December 20, 2013, 01:01:58 PM »
Hey Everyone,

CMC Guitars has teamed up with Parker to bring pack the Private Reserve Guitars.  The Private Reserve Guitars always represented the very best of Parker's capabilities featuring the best of exotic woods and special tone woods.  We started off the first run of guitars with some beautiful pieces of highly figured exotic Koa to make 3 Solid Body Koa Midi Fly Supreme's.  This Koa has been in their wood vault for a few years waiting for the right time to be built.  Here is the link to pics of one of the Parker Koa Fly's:

The first house I ever bought cost less than that guitar - of course, that was back in the stone ages ;)

It's beautiful, but not in my budget.

Ugly as usual. Nice Koa wood structure drowned in way too much shiny gloss and finally ruined by gold hardware.
Wouldn't play it even if I got it for free.

Yes, it is the wood that makes it so expensive along with that it is a one of three.  It is a pretty amazing guitar.  Ugly is not how I would describe it but I guess it is all subjective.  ;) I have pics of the guitar in production going from the big slab of Koa all the way through to the finish.

Agree in general, not a fan of gold hardware either, but I would definitely play it for free!

Would love to see some of the in process pix!

Here in South Florida gold hardware is a problem. It usually flakes off and looks ratty in less than a year. Salt air and high humidity are the problems.

What MIDI system is in that? I thought the newer ones have hex pickup on the outside (like vernon reids) and didn't use the bridge Piezos.  ???

Looks beautiful, but I've never been fond of gold hardware personally. Too bling for my tastes.
