Help me identify...
« on: August 06, 2017, 10:55:32 AM »
Hello!

I am a long time guitar player but new to the world of Parker. I was given this Parker P44 by a friend who was going to send it to the trash bin. The serial number is P1001542 and says "Made in Korea" underneath. It is in need of some TLC and seems to be in good shape (with exception of rusted screws, dirty bridge, dust and missing tremolo bar).

I have no idea how to post photos. But based on Parker catalogs, the finish appears to be Transparent Black Burst.

Seems like you've identified it as a P-44.

I should have been more specific. I need help identifying the year.

I'm not sure the 7 digit numbering system for the P series has been reliably decoded. It might be YYMMXXX (January 2010) ... but the P-44 was dropped from catalogs after 2009. That fact doesn't preclude the possibility that some were made beyond that time, so ... I dunno.
