Well, it seems like you have a binding nut. If you don't have a local luither, you'll have to open the slots up yourself.

Here's the tools you'll need. You'll need a file for each gauge string. Fairly simple, just carefully open the nut until the strings no longer bind.

Hopefully Parker is paying attention to these complaints and will spend more time on the QC of the nuts before going out the door. Seems like setting the guitars up with 10-52s would work, then all lower gauges would have zero binding issues.

You gotta increase the spring tension until the other strings don't or barely go flat on bends. Increased tension pulls the bridge down flat remaining stationary on the stop set screw. Whammy action will be harder/stiffer to use. Larger strings will require some filing of the nut slots to increase their width/groove size allowing for free(r) glide of strings. A search of the archives will reveal how one can DIY. I believe I've covered these topics before.

well as far as the tension is concerned i can see 9 threads on the balance wheel the low E drops down 20 cent when i bend the g strings 1.5 semi tones i dont think that would be considered as normal behavior since before this the guitar was perfectly setup with 6 threads visible
