OVERVIEW

An ultratight neck joint, maple top, Duncan humuckers and piezo bridge.

The PDF85 Radial Series Electric Guitar 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 Duncans with the pickup of their choice. The 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.

    Comments about Parker Guitars PDF85 Radial Series Electric Guitar:

    I love the neck on this guitar and it looks great while weighing less than my old USA-made Nitefly for less money. I upgraded it by adding the MIDI board to the modular GraphTech electronics and now have all the features I want in one guitar. It sounds great and even with my mods is very quiet. I had planned on swapping out the pickups, but they sound so good I am going to leave them alone. The only thing that would be better is Adrian's fly with Variax and the Sustainiac in it, but I don't play professionally and can't justify that cost. Great, great guitar!
