Maybe they could use it as a positive marketing thing! Make available some custom Parkers to us who in many ways encourage players globally to purchase Parkers! It would be a nice gesture at the very least! [:)]

I'd love to make it to summer NAMM.  If Parker won't sponsor the group, we could always go to our favorite mom & pop shop and get them to get us badges.  I go to 3 (at least - some years more) "closed" trade shows a year and it always amazes me that there are as many non-industry folks as there are. Most of the times dealers bring their customers (or potential customers) to check out new technology that they're likely a candidate for.  I think our dealers would probably feel that way about us.

That, or we enlist ChicagoKid to get a couple dozen extra's...[:D]

Peter,

I think it is a great idea!  Thanks for putting it out there.  

Maybe something as low key as getting a block of rooms at a hotel and arranging a tour of the factory.  Perhaps everyone could pitch in on a hospitality room or meeting room.

Summer NAMM would also be great if Parker would indeed sponsor the group (I am not in the business and could not go otherwise).

NAMM would be fun, But I think Alex has hit on a key. The Chicago Blues Festival is a cool gig too, which a a long weekend in Chicago along with a factory tour and maybe a "sponsored" hospitality night at the house of blues might be realistic to pull off the inaugural "Parker Users Group". Its a great idea that might even be doable, thanks Peter!

It might also be cool as a BYOP and a great chance to show off some cool one offs from the factory to a bunch of people that would spread the word. Sounds like a great viral marketing chance to me! In case anyone is looking for some justifications for funding ;)

I know Hamer sponsers a Hamer Fan Club pow-wow every few years with a factory tour, Q&A and a jam session.  I wish Parker would do something like that.

Parker are you listening?

 I'd love to start a Boston Area User Group. Maybe a monthly or quarterly jam session. We could have an "upper-horn" or "Duncans v Dimarzios" food-fight. Kinda like the Steinberger World or Jemsite folks.

Don't forget to arrange for some food and talk to Parker about some swag giveaways.

Food because some of us will be travelling from far away.
Swag because we need to advertise Parker.
Fast cars - no.
Blondes - only if they are dumb enough to buy us more Parkers.
If Parker can get confirmation and a small deposit for a small run of guitar to our forum voted specs (fat necks and huge frets) - that would be icing on the cake.

I think a unique featured Parker for forum members is a great idea! Maybe a Fly Bronze with a satin finish - something like that! [:p] A commerative T-shirt and cap with every purchase (2X please!) [:p]

Sounds great to me but do you guys actually think you could get enough people to agree on what they would want on a specific Parker to actually do a short-run and pay retail? Apparently Peter can leave off the "extras", sounds like everyone is smokin' their own :?) Please note good humored, tongue and check here. I'm guessing we might agree on what color the comerative t-shirt should be, I vote for black (satin finish not high gloss). Maybe we would be PUG (Parker Users Group) and a slight reference to the guitar shape? Gotta have a cool name or it's just no fun. Other name suggestions?
