Parker launch first acoustic guitar

At winter Namm show 2006 Parker unveiled their first ever achoustic guitar, the P8E with its unique body shape and soundhole. When Parker set out to create the P8E, their goal was to achive the most versatile and responsive acoustic in its price bracket, combining the best woods from around the world with the most innovative pickup system. Its body had to be the perfect shape for projecting tone, and its neck the most playable around.
With a solid cedar top, flame maple sides and a solid flame maple back has the tonewoods in place to ensure a warm and clear tone. Its mahogany neck combines with an ebony fingerboard and bridge, while rosewood binding and microdot inlays ensure this model turns heads wherever it goes. Gold Grover Sta-Tite machineheads and butter bean tuners supply a suitably vintage vibe, while a 14:1 gear ratio keeps everything at the right pitch.
Most acoustics die on the live circuit. But that’s where the P8E comes alive. Working with Fishman Transducers, Parker has created a dual active pickup system that sets new standards for amplified acoustic tone. Thanks to the inclusion of both a neck pickup for round acoustic sounds, and a Fishman Acoustic Matrix undersaddle pickup for shimmering highs and thundering lows, the P8E has all the bases covered.
