    Not being the original owner, I'm not certain of the year as they are hard to date, but best I can tell is early 2000's.

    We had a few Parkers through the shop and they were beautifully made and easy to play. They usually sold shortly after we posted pictures of them, but the last one was around for a few days and I had a fine time with it. Someone is going to score a great bass.
