    I'll take the 8 string, thank you. With the added carrot boost option, of course.
  4. "RED"
  5. Chalie, get BOTH!!! :)


    Definitely get the 5 string. This is BY FAR the slimmest neck profile I have ever played and without a doubt, you will have no problems getting used to it. Due to the exacting competency of its inherent ergonomic construction, it's a VERY balanced 7.5 lbs that feels like 5 lbs. when used in conjunction with a neoprene Comfort Strapp.

    Parker's John Page (http://www.parkerguitars.com/code/press/press_display.asp?pressid=35) assisted me a great deal during my purchase process. He is usually at NAMM shows and he can also provide a great wealth of information for you. :)


    You can read about my 2 Parkers on my news section at:

    Lastly, please feel free to drop me an e-mail at jay@grasstain.com and I'd be more than happy to share additional technical, construction information, customer service level experiences, etc., regarding Parker Guitars.
