Hi Howden End
, lets put it this way; until I got my Parker Fly
guitar, I would have seriously concidered going back into a burning building to rescue my Yamaha MSG
guitar. Now I would have to go back in to rescue two
Obviously the Yamaha
is a lot heavier than the Parker (weighs in at only 4.5 kgs).
The master tone
pot on the MSG
is a push-push
control that splits both humbuckers. A very useful feature. It gives the guitar a very Fender Strat/Telecaster sound.
The neck is wide and flat (Strat scale length) with a fabulously low action.
The middle position on the Parker
automatically splits both the humbuckers (Dimarzio's). It's the only 'split coil' sound, but is very similar to the mid Strat pick-up sound and is Very useable. I love the quirky shape of the Parker
; it's very comfortable to 'wear'. Having no markings on the front of the fretboard is no propblem either.There are markings on the upper edge of the neck. A totally FAB guitar.
There's photographs of both guitars on the 'my photo's', section of my soundclick
site. Please drop by and have a look. Oh, while you're there, have a listen to some of my music. The link to soundclick (Major Snagg) is just at the bottom of this message
Cheers, and thanks for asking. . . regards, David
