Help with this model
« on: January 19, 2016, 06:39:06 AM »
Hi all!
This is my first post here, so let me introduce.
I live in spain and currently I´m learning electric guitar. Now I use a PRS SE, but I want to try new guitars, to see what fits me most.
Recently I found someone selling a "Parker Dragonfly" guitar. I´m very interested because it would be my first Parker.
But neither the seller nor me know the exact model. It´s an HSH with Parker pickups and no piezo saddles, I think.

I don´t  know what to do. The price is around 200€.
Thanks in advance.

Looks like a fake Parker.  But I can't tell anymore with the huge number of stuff coming from Asia.

Oooh sorry to hear that.
Seller said he bought in 2011. Serial number is 8 numbers, starting 0908. Made in Indonesia (but we know a fake can mark whatever)
Thanks for the reply.

Kinda resembles the suspicious 'PDF40" that's been turning up (in Europe only) lately...

Yes. Its almost the same, apart from the H-S-H in the one offered to me.
Same head shape, same Parker pickups...
I think I´ll go for a PDF-60.
Thanks for the reply.

That guitar doesn't have a radial neck joint?? Wonder if this is a fake with a Floyd Rose trem, I also saw a hardtail model too..

Good Luck with the PDF60, If the one you get is anywhere as nice as the one my Son acquired your gonna be stoked..

Well, finally bought a PDF-60.
Second hand, but NEW.
Made in China version, I think. No push pull and 3-way switch different that the one in pics.
Apart for that, it´s perfect. Lighter than my PRS and my Strato. And cheaper.  :)
Love it!!
Thanks for your help and advices.

I had to wait for over a year before I found a white pdf60 out of China -- the only ones with the blade are those. A little setup and that's my favorite $300 guitar!
