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.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
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.
Style of Music: Jazz, Rock, Techno

"Probably the best buy ever!"
Sound: The sound is really good even with the stock humbuckers. I would definitely recommend to replace them with some dimarzios or duncans to get the most out of this guitar. It is really good or rock and anything lighter than that out of the box. For the price it sounds really good. Feature: As i said before, pickups need to be changed as well as the rest of elecronics, but other than that it has great features for the price. Gotoh tuners, maple fretboard with no ilnlays (badass looking), good, stable bridge. all chrome parts seem like they'll last long, finish is almost flawless after 3 years of playing. Ease of Use: This is where it shines - action was really low, no fret buzz and it still is. Neck hasn't warped, it is really fast and comfortable. Some might say that the parker signature upper horn is a con for this guitar, because it might not be as comfy as for example strat, but for me its ok. I'd say that this is one of the best playing guitars i've ever had, so i give it a 9. Quality: The quality is good. Some edges for the pickguard are not evenly shaped, but other than that it is really well made. considering that the wood quality and the fretwork is amazing, those flaws on pickguard are tiny. And of course, its not an USA made, so i expect it to be a bit less careful made. Korean instruments in general are really good and they use great wood (so far i can say only the best for Korean guitars). Value: This instrument is worth twice as much straight out of the box and if you replace the pickups, pots and wires with better ones, it will sound like 4 times better instrument. I must give it a 10 here. Manufacturer Support: Never had problems with the instrument. I'd say that's the best customer support you can ever get. The Wow Factor: This is why i got it. Its a real Parker only for less money than other models. Great playability, great sound and comfort! really fun to play! Overall: I've been playing and selling instruments for a long time, have owned more than 30 guitars from different manufacturers and i have to say that I didnt expect that good performance from a guitar this cheap. This has become one of my main guitars right away.
