  1. if Parker Guitars have any plans to make a bass? They did a great job reinventing the guitar with the Parker Fly, and I'd to see what they could do for bass...

    I heard rumors that they were going to make one, but it's been a while since I heard of any talk about it.

  4. The only one in existence that I'm aware of belongs to Steve Swallow and he wanted it so badly he had to sneak it out of Parker's shop before it was completed.

    I think Swallow's is the only Parker bass in existence. I remember reading that Ken Parker was going to put a bass in production about 10 years ago, but plans fell through.

    This is a fairly baffling situation. There is obviously demand for the bass and has been for years. Can't imagine what reason there is not to build a few, as I'm sure someone will pay whatever is asked for them.
