A precision-crafted instrument with top-flight appointments.
The DF422EFR Radial Neck Joint electric guitar 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 DF422FR also features a 22 fret fingerboard enabling precise placement of the neck pickup for that classic neck-position tone. Pickup mounting has also been improved to allow players to swap out the included EMG humbuckers with the pickup of their choice. Parker's 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 Official Floyd Rose trem and R3 locking nut provides secures strings at both ends for problem-free whammy bar workouts. Pro features include ebony fretboard and Grover tuners.

Comments about Parker Guitars DF522EFR Maxx Fly W/ EMG's and Floyd Rose Tremolo Electric Guitar:
I bought this guitar used. I had no reviews to go with and never got to play it. When i got it in the mail i was extremely excited, and let me just say that this guitar is amazing. This is my first parker, but i also own a gibson explorer pro, ovation acoustic, and a jackson randy rhoads guitar, and a handmade dauphin classical guitar. This is guitar is tied for first with my gibson. The only reason is because of the pickups. The emgs that they chose (which i still dont know excactly which ones they did) are not as hot as the pups in my explorer. I will probably switch them out for some blackouts which is another feature for this guitar. You can change the pickups like on a normal guitar. This parker has a great look, feel, and weight. The neck is thin, but not too thin. The playability is amazing. The floyd rose special that is in this beast doesn't lose tuning. The pickups in it are great for clean, and are great in general i just was wanting something better for metal, which this guitar is still great for. The case is small and fits the guitar perfectly. It is made by the same company who makes cases for gibson. I was originally going to wait for a good deal on ebay on one of the more high-end parkers, but i decided to get this guitar used off of musiciansfriend. Let me say i'm glad i did. This guitar is comparable to a parker fly. My guitar teacher has a high-end fly and this guitar is comparable in certain aspects. Obviously the higher end will be better, but this guitar still has blown me away. If you are looking for a cool parker good for playing almost anything (the pickups are good for almost everything except if you want really high gain) then try this guitar. . lol anyway this is a great guitar, and hopefully this review will help a lot of people because i could not find a review or any extra information on this guitar. I might even make a video on it. Anyway hope this helped, and you should consider this guitar if you have the money, but i suggest you try to find one used (good luck lol) Good luck :)Good luck :)
