Parker P-Series
They're guitars that deliver everything you'd expect from a Parker, at a price that acknowledges the concept of budget. When he designed the P-Series, Ken Parker used traditional materials without compromising the high standards and precise tolerances that have made Parker Guitars the ultimate in tonal spectrum and playability. With the combination of Parker playability, piezo, and magnetic voices, and the rockin' Parker look, the P-Series represents the finest guitar for the money on the market, bar none. Importantly, all P-Series guitars sold in the U.S. are set up in their Mundelein, IL factory to ensure spot-on tuning and playability. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Parker products.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "Very fast shipping! My order was packed well, was as described and in perfect condition. Thanks zZounds!" - customer on February 7, 2014
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing Quality and Playability. Short on cash ? GET A PARKER."
Sound: The sound. Amazingly crystal clear cleans. Although for the distortion I use a big muff or boss ds-1, because I tried it with my amp's distortion and it didn't really show off. But man, when I plugged it in with my pedals, this guitar became so flexible. I can play some bluesy riffs and solos, and at the same time change pedals and start shredding or experimenting with tappings. The pickups are just great. Feature: Well it includes a Gig Bag which for my taste is one of the best out there. It's kinda hard actually, it isn't at all soft and weak like what you would expect from a Gig Bag. Actually I think this is a great feature. Ease of Use: The action is low, and the maple-matte neck is amazingly comfortable. Also it is one of the lightest guitars I've ever played. Quality: Again, the quality of Parker guitars just compares to high end gibson's and fender's. It has no glue residues, and the fretboard is really good in means of action and frets not being sharp. I thought I was going to have to take it to a luthier to fix the bridge but not with this one!. Value: Totally worth it, actually it's kinda cheap. I was going to buy a Gibson SG Faded Series. But after reading 1 in 5 will come out with that Gibson quality I decided for my favorite second brand. Actually I didn't know that Parker sold guitars this cheaply. Manufacturer Support: I haven't dealt with Parker, simply because the guitar is very well made. But I'm sure that as Ben Parker applied an extremely smart and quality controlled environment to his guitars, he does the same with his customer service and company. The Wow Factor: The design is amazing. The lines and the headstock. I just plainly love it. And the brilliant cherry just makes it better.! Overall: I think this is one of those guitars that will stay with me and I'll even take it to my tomb. It is just so well made and it is so easy to play that just makes you get inspired to create new things. And believe me, if there's anything that can help a musician a lot, it is that. Getting inspired by your guitar, and falling in love with her. Parker never ceases to amaze me.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Playable work of Art."
Sound: I'm using a Line6 spider III, there is absolutely no noise at home, and the hum that I get in my music room, at school, is attributed to the lighting, which is completely defeated with the pickups switched to dual reverse wired. Feature: This is a no bells and whistles standard 3-single pickup work of art. Ease of Use: The neck practically plays itself. I've never held a nicer feeling guitar in all my 52 years Quality: This is a gorgeous piece, again I'll say work of art. Value: I don't think you could find a guitar this nicely put together, with this GREAT style, sound, and playability for twice the price. Manufacturer Support: When I've had to email Parker for questions, they answer promptly and knowledgbly The Wow Factor: This is truly a unique guitar, that turns heads. With its sound, and ease of use coupled with its inspired design, I would say it is the perfect addition to my collection. If I had to pick only one to own, it would definitely be this one, hands down. Overall: Unless I was able to afford one of Parker's top models. This will be my last guitar. I don't really want to play any other.
