Re: Wish list: custom Parker guitar
DiMarzio supposedly will sell Parker versions of all their pickups, but you need to order them specifically. I believe Duncan will do the same, for custom pickup money. I think there's only two regular Duncans you can get for Parkers; the JB and either the Jazz or '59. All others are custom order.
My understanding from the Parker forum is that there really isn't mountains of difference in the sound between the various models, so I don't know if going all that way foir a custom model is wise, really. Nice to have, but I don't know if it's reallt that much more versatile than a cheaper one. Also, some of the resonance is coming from the fact that the regular models are wrapped in carbon fibre; is that what you want for your swamp ash/koa version?
