Parker Guitars Introduces New Bolt-On DragonFly
Chicago, IL, January 14, 2010 — Parker Guitars is pleased to announce the expansion of its newly introduced USA made DragonFly Series through the addition of a bolt-on neck with exclusive radial neck joint.
Through the addition of this unique neck joint, the neck is further stabilized, the guitar’s tone is enhanced and it allows for easier access to the upper frets. Because of the radiused neck, the joint has no flat, sliding surfaces that would enable the alignment to go off center. The superb fit of the joint allows better transfer of sound from neck to body than on a conventional bolt-on guitar and the contoured shape does not bulge at the joint so the feel is consistent all the way to the body.
These Bolt-On Dragonfly guitars are available in three models: the satin finish DF524- list price $1999, the gloss finish DF624- list price $2399 and the flame top DF724- list price $2669. All three models feature a beautiful Alder body with maple neck, ebony fingerboard and stainless steel frets. Their undercut single coil routes make swapping out pickups from the single-single-hum Seymour Duncans (SSL6 single and TB14 humbucker) to another type easy. Controls consist of volume, tone (split coil), 5 way mag selector, 3 way mag/piezo selector to give the guitar its flexible voicing.
