Not satisfied with anything but Parker...
« on: November 07, 2014, 02:04:40 PM »
Ever since i've had my PDF and DF, i just can't be satisfied with the playability of other Guitars, sure some may sound better but the necks and playability don't come close IMHO. I've been to the Guitar store today in search of a new Guitar, i've tried loads, SG's, Les Pauls, PRS's, etc... all just don't feel right compared to my Parker. Maybe i've just gotten too used to them?

Anyone else feel this way?

On a side note, i'm looking at getting a PDF60 in White as a little side project instead, can someone tell me, is doing mods such as changing pickups on these pretty straight forward?

I agree. I almost feel like I'm cheating by playing my Parker. It plays so easy that it feels like work playing another guitar.

I bought my first DF524NS and my Gibson, Epiphones and LTD developed rusted strings because they just weren't being played anymore.

Then I bought a custom DF522NN and now my other guitars are depressed because they haven't been played in years. One DF on stage and one DF at home and that's all I want to play.

I guess I'm just spoiled.

It's good to be spoiled sometimes Notes, and with a Parker its Non-stop fun.

Sold that plank-necked "Pleked" Gibson SG today, now If I can just get a fly deluxe for less than a $1000...

I'm thinking about selling my first guitar. A 1970 Gibson ES-330. I guess it's hanging on the wall in the studio for sentimental reasons. The problem is, I'll have to clean it up first. It has been played probably 15 minutes total since I bought my first Parker. I looked at it and noticed the first string broke, but I have no desire to replace it. I know the guitar needs a new home, with someone to love it, but like I said, it's an old friend and I do like looking at it.
