Parker DF724KOA special order guitar with koa top

At Winter NAMM 2013, Anaheim, Parker Guitars added the DF724KOA to its USA hand crafted MaxxFly Radial Neck Joint Series as well as the DF523SA 3 single coil pickup guitar.
The DF724KOA features a beautiful Koa top with an antique sunburst finish on an Alder body and is only available as a special order. Through the use of Parker's radial neck joint, the neck is further stabilized, the guitar’s tone is enhanced and it allows for easier access to the upper frets. Because of the radiused neck, the joint has no flat, sliding surfaces that would enable the alignment to go off center. The smooth fit of the joint allows better transfer of sound from neck to body than on a conventional bolt-on guitar and the contoured design provides clean unrestricted access to the very last fret.
Parker offers the beautiful look of koa on an USA made guitar. In addition to the koa top and alder body, the DF724KOA features a maple neck with ebony fingerboard and stainless steel frets. The undercut single coil routes make swapping out pickups from the single-single-hum Seymour Duncans (SSL6 single and TB14 humbucker) to another type easy. Additionally, the DF724KOA features a Parker vibrato with the Ghost acoustic piezo saddle system. Controls consist of magnetic volume, magnetic tone with the coils split, 5-way magnetic selector, 3-way magnetic/piezo selector to give the guitar its flexible voicing. A smart jack allows for both stereo or mono output. Along with the included stereo cable, the smart jack gives you the freedom to split your source signal two ways if needed, for example send your acoustic piezo signal thru your DI to an acoustic amp or PA and send your magnetic pickups through your favorite tube amp.

At Winter NAMM 2013 Parker Guitars also announced the DF523SA USA hand crafted MaxxFly guitar. The DF523SA marks the first appearance of a production model 3 single coil pickup guitar to the Parker line.
Parker now offers the renowned feel and playability of a Parker guitar combined with the tonal options only an all single coil equipped guitar can provide. In addition to the time tested pairing of a gorgeous Ash body with Seymour Duncan SSL6 single coil pickups, the DF523SA features a Parker vibrato with the Ghost acoustic piezo saddle system for versatility of tone.
The DF523SA features the same neck and body construction and control setup as the the DF724KOA described above.
