  • Parker PM-10 Guitar

    Anyone tried one of these or own one? They look pretty nice. Is the guitar neck-through or set neck? Is the body one piece mahogany? Looks like a great guitar fro the price but not many reviews on the HC review page.
    I just bought some Fralin Unbuckers that are supposed to be great coil-tapped and I'm looking to score this guitar.

    I used to own a PM-20, when they first came out. Essentially the same guitar.

    Great player, pickups on it are little Duncan JB/Jazz copies which sound decent but nothing great. The Fralins would definitely do the guitar some good.

    I changed the tuners out on mine to Sperzels, and modified it with an additional volume knob. Decent axe for the money, wish it came with a case instead of a gigbag though. The neck is set, though theres no heel on it.. and the body itself looked to me like one-piece with a maple cap, albeit a thin one with a veneer (PM-20 had a flamed maple top)

    Pick one up! MIK quality on the cheap.
    Here's what mine looked like the day I got it.

      They are set necked guitars....I had the PM20....I also agree that the pickups were "meh" The Neck PU was ok, but I couldn't stand the bridge. It was a great guitar, but I ended up selling it (to fund a Orange AD30HTC). I miss it, but I didn't like the bubinga top. Too fancy for my tastes....... Sadly I now have major GAS for an LP style guitar or a MIA Parker.......

        Haven't tried one. Probably 'cause the headstock don't look right to me with the LPish upper bass bout, or vice versa, take your pick.

          Good guitar for the price.

              I like them and I have played several of them. They are very consistant and I've never played a bad one. I would have bought one but I decided on a Mojo instead.

                Great playing guitars.

                The local Sam Ash by me recently started stocking new Parkers and I played the PM10 and 20. Really sweet guitars. There was one listed on Cragislist Chicago recently for $180... I really should have snagged it.

                  You guys tried em with a strap standing up and they're OK for balance?
                  thanks

                    I didn't. But I did notice that they seemed balanced and both the body and neck were fairly lightweight.

                        I saw that one on CL, too - the guy never emailed me back
                        This used to be a great place. Thanks, GCI, for killing it.See y'all at Wein's.
