Coming on all USA Parkers with humbuckers - black Seymour Duncan logos and 2 rows of black screws.

Cool.  Same style of mount?  Same location?

Thanks for this.  Looks great.

May I make a recommendation:  I have finally found the right SC pickup for my S3.  I've had mine custom built with "deep" cavities to be able to accommodate Kinman pickups as I absolutely wanted noiseless pickups.  Not deep enough. The pickups were too close to the strings and crashed.  Same with DiMarzio Areas.  The duncan mini buckers were a bit too hot and lost the strat spank.

I installed fralin split-blade pickups last week.  End of search.  They are less deep than regular Fenders, like to be close to the strings so the split blade does not produce out-of-phase issues with the D and G strings and sound like a vintage Fender.

I'd recommend to anyone who's not totally happy with the Duncan stock to look into the Fralin and for Parker to check it out as a paid option.  Maybe Lindy would make flatter radius models to accommodate the 14" radius of the DF, but even his 12" models work great and sound awesome.

Now just make the finish matte or satin to hide those hideous scratches.
