Parker Guitars Introduces its First All Single Coil Pickup Guitar, the DF523SA


Chicago, IL, January, 2013 — Parker Guitars is proud to announce the DF523SA USA hand crafted MaxxFly guitar. The DF523SA marks the first appearance of a production model 3 single coil pickup guitar to the Parker line.


Parker is proud to finally offer the world renowned feel and playability of a Parker guitar combined with the bell like clarity and tonal options only an all single coil equipped guitar can provide. In addition to the time tested pairing of a gorgeous Ash body with single coil pickups, the DF523SA features a Parker vibrato with the Ghost® acoustic piezo saddle system for the utmost in versatility.


The DF523SA also features a maple neck with ebony fingerboard and stainless steel frets. The undercut single coil routes make swapping out the included Seymour Duncan SSL6 pickups to another type easy. Controls consist of volume, tone, piezo acoustic volume, 5 way mag selector and 3 way mag/piezo selector to give the guitar its flexible voicing. A smart jack allows for both stereo or mono output. Along with the included stereo cable, the smart jack gives you the freedom to split your source signal two ways if needed. Send your acoustic piezo signal thru your DI to an acoustic amp or PA, and send your magnetic pickups through your favorite tube amp- the choice is yours!


Through the use of our radial 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 design provides clean unrestricted access to the very last fret.
