Current Parker ownership and plans?
« on: September 20, 2018, 03:07:31 PM »
Anyone have the latest info on who owns Parker (the brand, tooling, IP, etc.) and what they plan to do?

I have a contact who has serious interest in resurrecting a brand, and Parker may be a good fit.

Well, parkerguitars.com:

"© 2018 Parker Guitars • 1649 Barclay Blvd., Buffalo Grove, IL 60089 • 800-877-6863
U.S. Music is a Division of JAM Industries, LTD."

So i imagine USM or Jam would be where to start, but my understanding is that the tooling and pizza ovens etc has all been sold off.

Nothing but the name left...

And as far as I know, they're trying to sell the brand.
