I can say there is nothing like this guitar. I own 3 parkers. They all have sustain out of this world. You can hear it right now! Other companies are trying to copy but nothing plays like a Parker.
This guitar is unique in looks, playability, and sound. The solid boty, light weight, fast neck, long sustain, and two-octave range per string, put this guitar in a class far apart from any other nylon string guitar. The fat bass, clear midrange, and singing treble nake it fabulous for finger picking or strumming. While it won't replace a traditional Spanish guitar, it will greatly surpass it in the hands of an experimental guitarist. The price is questionably high, and I say questionably because once one starts to play a Nylon Fly, its beautiful voice and smooth feel make one forget about the big dent in one's bank account.
I've played all of the better nylon string solid-body acoustics and owned several high-end beauties. The Parker Select Nylon is the epitome of simplicity, elegance, balance, feel, and full-bodied tone. Additionally, the intonation is spot-on in every position of the fretboard. Can you tell I love this instrument? If you want sweet, deep, nylon string tones without feedback at typical stage volumes, this is the guitar for you.
Although an expensive piece of hardware, this guitar is probably the smoothest, most comfortable, guitar I have ever owned. A true Violin! If you get the chance to play one for just a few seconds, you will agree.
