P38 neck vs PDF105 neck
« on: October 25, 2014, 07:37:28 AM »
Could anyone compare the neck of a P38 to a PDF 105?  Are the lower priced Parker's necks mostly the same in shape and playability? I used to have a P-38 and I am thinking of purchasing a PDF 105 but there are no dealers anywhere close to me for me to try one out.

I have a PDF 100 and have a P-38 on the way, should be here today actually. From the P-38 I played a few weeks back, they have a bit more of a rounder vintage neck vs the PDF100's thinner more modern/shred neck. I'll be able to confirm tomorrow.

Ack...the P38's action is all kinds of jacked up. Need to get it in line. But I stand by what I said before, PDF has more of an Ibanez style shredder neck vs a more Fender style on the P38.

Thanks for the reply.

I am trying to decide whether to buy the 105 or really go all the way and get a RF522.  I have never spent near that much money on a guitar and do not know whether it is worth it.   I do like the coil splitting on the RF522 and it does come with a hard shell case but still that is a lot of money for an old retired guy.

Have you thought about a used pre-refined Fly or NiteFly? If you can find a good one at a reasonable price that might be the way to go.  8)

I have been looking a bit on E-bay but have no decided anything yet.  I just wonder if I would notice the difference between the expensive ones.
