The DF842 is identical to the DF824 with the exception of pickup configuration and a full 24 frets. The full 2 octave fingerboard allows players to hit the notes they need that are simply unobtainable on a 21 or 22 fret board. For those that prefer a double humbucker layout, the DF842 features a Seymour Duncan SH2 Jazz neck pickup that provides an articulate and clear tone with smooth sustain. The Seymour Duncan TB4 bridge pickup features high output and just the right blend of sustain and distortion.
The DF842 features a Carved Alder body and Basswood neck, a Parker custom-cast aluminum vibrato bridge with stainless steel saddles, Graph Tech™ ghost® piezo saddles with an Acousti-phonic Modular Pre-amp, a Carbon/Glass fiber fretboard with 24 stainless steel frets, Seymour Duncan SH2 Jazz neck and TB4 bridge pickups and Sperzel® Trim-Lok™ tuners. It's also Midi upgradable.
