PDF85

The PDF85 features a carved mahogany body with a flame maple veneer and a gloss finish. A matte finished maple neck features our exclusive radial neck joint and sports an ebony fretboard and locking tuners. Duncan USM HB102 pickups provide versatile electric tones while the Graph Tech™ ghost® piezo saddles and Acousti-phonic Modular Pre-amp supply convincing acoustic tones. The Parker vibrato system is standard and adds even more versatility.

About the PDF Radial Neck Series
The PDF Radial Neck Models are 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 PDF Radial Neck Models 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 Seymour Duncan or Duncan USM pickups with the pickups 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.
