The MaxxFly Radial Series is equipped with most of the great features Parker is known for in an elegantly carved new shape, showcasing a new, 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. The MaxxFly Radial Series 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. Our new exclusive radial neck joint ensures better transfer of tone from neck to body and a precise fit with no slippage due to lateral sliding.
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 are the hallmarks of the DF523. In addition to the time tested pairing of a gorgeous Swamp Ash body with single coil pickups, it features a matte finish and a bolt-on maple neck that utilizes our exclusive radial neck joint. The ebony fretboard is fast playing and features stainless steel frets and Sperzel® Trim-Lok™ tuners. A Parker custom-cast aluminum vibrato bridge with Graph Tech™ ghost® piezo saddles through the Acousti-phonic Modular Pre-amp add unparalleled versitility. Equipped with 3 Seymour Duncan® SSL6 pickups, the center pickup is reverse wound, reverse polarity for hum-free 2nd and 4th switch positions. It's also Midi upgradable.
