So, I'm shopping, and I start looking at Parker PM20s and PM20 Pros, and I stumbled on the fact that the PM20 Pro got a redesign at some point in its short production run. One noticeable difference is in the headstock- one version has the traditional Parker headstock, the other has a 3+ 3 like the PM20. I prefer the traditional Parker headstock on Parkers, but that is ultimately cosmetic, and won't be a real factor in my decision making

However, one also has just 2 control knobs, while the other has 4. That speaks to different functionality, which DOES matter.

Anybody familiar with these guitars? I can't seem to find out what is going on here.

No idea. Parker was sold off, of course, and several of the original designs changed over time.

i gotta think the ebay version is meant to be more les paul-ish with the 4 control pots and 3x3 tuners. just a hunch.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Greg's got it. Les Paul or Tele wiring options is all.

I used to have a PM20. They're not as exciting as you might hope, I think, Danny. It just felt and sounded very sterile to me.

Well, the PM20 Pro is a little different from the PM20- they came standard with the tried & true JB/Jazz combo, for one. Better hardware, too.

But they didn't really change the pickups or selectors- why change the other wiring?
