Baritone Model & Search Engine
« on: February 21, 2006, 08:15:02 AM »
I know John P said that Parker wasn't adding any new models in the near future, but would a 28" scale baritone guitar be a possibility? Could the custom shop knock out one?

Secondly, I also saw where John P said the new website is being worked but that it's slow progress. Could you include a search engine on the site where people could use keywords to find all relevant posts before starting a new thread?

Thanks,

The Parker Forum has a search function that does just that.  Another option is to use Google and do an Advanced search for a specific word or phrase within the parkerguitars.com domain.

Oops, I didn't notice it tucked away in the menu bar. My bad[B)]
Maybe the webmaster could make it an actual box with the word 'SEARCH' next to it.

How about the baritone though? I'll only start this one thread on it, I promise.

As far as I know there is nothing about the Custom Shop and baritone guitars.  I looked and I think your best bet would be to call them up and ask directly, or even call your local  Parker dealer to find out the information that you are looking for.

Thanks for the responses. I am getting more involved with music theory and keys, so I began getting curious about baritones after reading how easily you can transpose across 10 differnet keys on one. I love my nitefly and if I were to buy a baritone I would rather get a Parker as opposed to a Steinberger or Gibson. Plus I guess I was curious as to how much interest there was in this idea. Not much, I guess. Anyway I get lots of information and enjoyment from reading through the forums, thanks again for the responses and I'm always looking for new ideas.

A baritone (24frets!) with a sustainer system! That's what I need! Wahoo!

there is a thread somewhere that talks about modifying a fly to a baritone by moving the bridge back.  i think we decided it was not possible as you would have to move the frets as well

I do not know much about music theory but I would love to try a baritone. Have you played one? I drop tune to D all the time and even try Db but usually the sound stinks any lower than D on my Flys and regular guitars.

I haven't personally played one, but I understand the tuning starts on B and strings are size 12 to 68. My wife accompanys me on piano so I mostly stick to standard tuning. Plus the nut on my nitefly won't take larger than a set of 10's. When I do tune down it's just half a step.
I don't want to reslot the nut and I'm too lazy/inexperienced to create a hybrid string set so until I get some cash to feed my GAS, (or I'm divorced), I'll keep chugging away at A 440.

Thanks, I've learned something. Not sure I want to mess with fat heavy strings again.[:)]
