Re: Parker Guitars - Too perfect?
Parker's reputation for quality is unwarranted in my experience. I bought a Parker Fly Mojo Midi in April 2011 (so, yes, conveniently for Parker, their one year warranty has expired). The guitar began buzzing on the lower register frets, while the higher registers were buzz-free. Seems unlikely, right? i took the guitar to my local guitar tech who pointed out that the fretboard is separating from the neck. I am an amateur who plays the guitar several hours a week. The guitar has been out of my house once, for a two hour jam session. I would be angry if a $300 Mexican Strat suffered such a fate after a year and a half of gentle play. But a $4,000 guitar?!?! Looks like a replay of CBS' purchase of Fender. Unfortunately, I have a Post - U.S. Music Corp. Parker Fly, which will probably have all the value of a post-CBS Fender down the road. STEER CLEAR OF PARKER UNTIL THEY FIX THEIR QUALITY ISSUES!!! Caveat Emptor!!
