    Is there anyone here (or anywhere that ISN'T Parker Guitars - they don't want to tell me) that knows what Parker's cable truss is all about? It's been bothering me since I first heard of it last year (on this site, no less).

    You should also note that the cable truss goes all the way up to the head! Ordinary truss rods end around the first fret-nut area.
    Good or bad? I don't know...not necessary, but could be beneficial...

    Also note that you will need a special tiff-reader to see the scans...
