Product Description

The Parker Guitars PDF60 Electric Guitar is equipped with most of the great features Parker is known for in an elegantly carved shape, showcasing a more traditional and ergonomically shaped upper horn while retaining the look and feel that is unmistakably Parker. The flared headstock provides more strength and allows for a thinner profile and a faster, more comfortable neck.

PDF Radial Neck Models also feature a 22 fret fingerboard enabling precise placement of the neck pickup for that classic neck-position tone. Pickup mounting has been improved to allow players to swap out the included Duncans with the pickup of their choice. Their exclusive radial neck joint ensures better transfer of tone from neck to body and a precise fit with no slippage due to lateral sliding.

Features:

- Carved Basswood body
- Exclusive radial neck joint
- Maple neck
- Ebony fingerboard
- Duncan USM pickups
- 3-way pickup selector
- Parker vibrato system
- Locking tuners
- 25.5" Scale

Customer Reviews
2 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "1st Parker, gazillionth guitar"
Overall: This is the 1st Parker I've owned. I've been playing electrics for 40 years and have taken every guitar I've owned apart and put it back together just to get a better feel for it. I bought this PDF60 used on craigslist, met in a parking lot, played it, it seemed fine, a good wide flat feeling neck, very light weight. Brought it home, plugged into my 1/2 rig (Line6 HD500 and powered 100w Fender wedge) and played it for an hour through most of my favorite presets. Pickups:The sound was muddier and more "run together" than my other guitars (2009 Fender Amer Deluxe Strat, 2003 Peavey Wolfgang TOL). I believe it is the dbl humbucker 2 coil Seymour Duncan pickups that cause this. It felt like they are Bottom Of the Line "value" p.u.'s. Hopefully the more expensive Parker models use better ones. Tuners:I changed strings to Elixir Polyweb .009 to .046. I have locking tuners on the Strat so I assumed these work the same. I strung the string straight through the hole, bend the string 90, tightened the locking tuner knob and clipped the string off at about 1/2" from the peg head. This worked OK until I tuned up. I 1st noticed a problem on the 2nd string. I put my pegwinder on the tuning knob and turned it 8 - 10 times to tighten the string. The locking tuner knob loosened as I raised the pitch! I thought I was rubbin on something so I tried it with my fingers with the same result. What a poor design! The 2nd string loosened and slid out of the peg head. Since I clipped it off I cant wrap it around the peg, now I have wasted a $12 set of strings. Bridge:The bridge has adjustable saddles for intonation. They are J shaped in what appears to be an attempt to get the saddle screw out from under the string. The J shape blocks the saddle next to it from adjustment (image 6 J's lying next to each other, slide one up and it bumps into the butt of the J next to it). Poor design in my opinion.Not a bad 1st guitar, but way overpriced for the poor design of several functions.
Style of Music: rock, blues, prog.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
