    I'm very impressed

    By zdjxfkcghj

    from Florida

    I played one of these the other day and was blown away, absolutely the best sounding guitar I've ever heard played clean and it can get pretty dirty too. Very unique, very versatile, I'd love to have one, if i had the money. The only thing I don't like is that the strings are so close to the body, making it uncomfortable to pick/strum, for me at least, but I'm sure I could use to it. I would take this over any fender, I love the single coil sound, but I'm disappointed by the quality of fenders, this is much nicer.

    Great guitar

    By parkeriskewl

    from new York City

    I bought the parker p-36 in white, and itis beautiful.This guitar has unique looks, all around 5 star sound and plays like a dream. I have always loved telecasters, and i found that this guitar had an ever better neck, so i went with my gut and bought it, and am so happy. The piezo is cool, but not very practical, it gives off a very thin sound, but when i mix it with the neck pickup, it gets a nice sound. All in all a solid guitar for everyone.

    Great value

    By David from Ohio

    from Dayton OH

    I own 9 guitars, have played guitar for 27 years, and this is one of my favorites. Very versatile, well made, slim and fast neck, and the piezo pickup gives it a really unique sound over my other guitars. Good for all genres. Solid guitar for the money.

    versatility plus

    By musicman1992

    from western N.Y.

    I bought the red p-36. Fits me so fine. Lite weight and the tone is there. I play thru a peavey delta blues with the 15 in speaker. This guitar sings thru this amp. I run an A/B switch. send acoustic to mixer. I think it is a great sounding acoustic thru the pa. The neck is a lil narrow but all else is great. We cover country, southern, classic, blues, new stuff and oldies it covers them all. I reccomend this guitar to all.

    AWESOME!!!!!!!

    By Guitar Hero-LhumT

    from Some Place

    I played this guitar at a shop and it rocked! The color is soooooo awesome and the sound is like a telecaster but better. It's good for rock, country, jazz, and softer metal. Just a great guitar!

    a beautiful, light, versatile guitar

    By Harpsichord

    from Northern NJ

    I was looking at hybrids until I found the P-36 which I bought both to back up my Strat HSS and give me a feedback free plugged-in acoustic sound. This guitar plays well and is appreciably lighter than a Strat or Tele. Mine has the natural finish and it's just plain stunning to look at. I had a second string tree put on (D&G strings) to clear up some buzzing and upped the strings to 11s which eliminated a slight low E string buzz and boosted the piezo sound. The piezo tone is a little thin, but I'm getting a decent acoustic tone using the guitar effects of a Boss 864 recorder which also gives me a wide choice of electric tones, and does so without splitting the signal with a Y cord. The Telecaster style pick-ups are pretty liveable, if a little muffled, though the harmonics are suprisingly crisp. If you need a multi-purpose guitar that looks good and plays well at a decent price, check out the P-36.

    Great Guitar

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I love how it plays, and looks. The piezo sound is good, about what they normally sound like. The pickups are thin sounding and I'm thinking of replacing them, perhaps it's the real light strings it came with. I'm quite happy with the guitar, regardless of the great price. I wish the neck had fret markers on it's face. The ones on the side are hard to see. With a little tweaking this will be a great instrument.

    Great guitar for the price

    By Parker is awesome

    from San Diego

    Feels good, plays good, the sound is more crunchy than my S Series Ibanez, but I can still solo like crazy, and I like the stereo split, so I can have an acoustic rig and an electric rig, and switch instantly to the piezo, or even mix the signals and sound like two guitars. It's everything i've wanted in a guitar.

    Very impressive guitar

    By A-

    from Chester County, PA

    I bought the P-36 to compliment my Stat, which covers 75% of the classic rock my band plays. I wanted a tele for the remaining 25%, but never cared for the tele-look. The P-36 is a great alternative. The more I play it, the more I like it. Neck is very comfortable, and it stays in tune very well. Clean sounds are great and although a bit noisy, I love the overdriven sound through my Hot Rod Deluxe. I've considered upgrading the pups, but I not sure if it's worth the cost. The Parker pups are pretty good.

    Best Tone for the Bucks

    By ChiantiM

    from Rhode Island

    The Parker P-36 is a fantastic guitar, allowing you to combine acoustic and electric sounds through the Fishman VT Powerbridge and Alnico pickups. The fit, finish, and workmanship are all 'Parker' and I'm sure the Korean made instrument while well-made, benefits from the professional setup in the U.S. at Parker's studios. I play a lot of Blues and the instrument carries a cutting tone at the bridge that warms up at the neck with the classic telecaster sounds. The Piezo is great and affords the opportunity to have a lot of fun and experiment with a variety of unique tones. I push my signal through a Yamaha MagicStomp for acoustic tones. It does the job to soften any high-end that might come off the Piezo. But let there be no doubt...this is not the 1980's sounding Piezo. Fishman has done a great job of creating an acoustic image. This guitar is a bargain at the price and a joy to play. It's a lot of fun to work out the variations of electric and acoustic mix and will keep your ideas flowing.
