I think I'm gonna pick up a Parker P-42 today. What do you guys think? Good guitar? Never played one but my teacher has one and it sounds pretty nice. Just interested in what you think. I had this electric yamaha when I started the pickups won't switch over and it's all crackily, I'm not paying to have it repaired. Tell me what you guys think!

It looks like a great guitar, but you've never played it and your buying it? I suggest you atleast try it out first before you buy it. you never know maybe, you wont like the feel of the neck, maybe you wont like the feel of the body, maybe you will, but find out buy trying it before spending $519 on something that might not be for you

I think its a stupid idea TBH.

The opening lines of that post shouldnt have said "I think I'm gonna pick up a Parker P-42 today. What do you guys think? Good guitar? Never played one but my teacher has one and it sounds pretty nice."

Should have been something like "Im interested in a Parker P-42. Is it a good guitar? Im going to go try one out for about 3 hours to make sure its what I like. And then Im going to go to other shops and try out other guitars to make sure I get what I REALLY want."

Also, it gets really old when kids are always saying "my guitar teacher has this..." or "my guitar teacher said to buy this or Ill suck forever" but maybe thats just biased because I sell a lot of MGs to kids that come into my store saying "my guitar teacher has a MG full stack and it rawkz I want one!".

Youre interested in what I think: I think you better take a few more days and play the field. Research your hundreds of other options and dont base it on what your teacher has.

Actually it sounds ok but the sustain is crap. Save a little more and get a pm 20, hella lot better than the p 42. Also looks better.

Simple. It's the amp. Getting EVH tone out of a Twin Reverb is as likely as Nazis supporting jews.

So I bought it. It is a great guitar. Only one problem, not a big deal though. The body somewhat drives into my chest but then again I am pretty small. It is one of those things I will actually grow and it will fit me better but this thing is amazing it doesn't squeal or anything. I don't know what you guys are talking about this guitar is beautiful and I love everything about it!!!

a short story, after trying out a Pettrucci sig, some Epi LPs, some PRS SE's like teh Tremonit and Custom I picked up a used Parker with natural ash body and maple fretboard 2 things I hate, it played by far the best out of all the guitars I tried and I tried many for over an hour. It was a 2 horned model but had easily the best fret access, best action, best feeling thinnest neck of the day but I just couldnt buy it b/c of the shape and finish, my loss I suppose.

Then a used MIA strat at a different store down here. the traynors $499 CAD and new in the states its $625 so its a good deal and the strats $799CAD compared to $1300 CAD for a new one, and its my favorite colour, sunburst with maple fretboard, only colour I like as much is olympic white with maple fretboard
