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. An HSS pickup configuration has been utilized for the wider palette of tones that today's guitarists demand from a high end instrument. Pickup mounting has also 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 DF524 features a carved Alder body with 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 Seymour Duncan® SSL6 neck and middle pickups and a TB14 bridge pickup, the center pickup is reverse wound, reverse polarity for hum-free 2nd and 4th switch positions. It's also Midi upgradable.
