    Do they still have that wood filled composite Parker neck on them, Peizos, or are they VERY different?

    Don't really know, that's all the info I could find on the parker forum.

    I actually like the USA basses (except for the JJ pickup arrangement), but I'm not so sure about the imports from that one picture.

    I like 'em. That price is just list so the street price should be a little less. I didnt see a five amongst those imports so I would'nt be too interested in gettin' one. Parkers have very tight string spacing and I see they have carried the torch over to the imports, bummer, I really wanted to get one but those issues are what keeps me from owning one. Oh well, maybe there'll be a 6.
