    Parker opinions?

    So, what do you think of Parker guitars? I've been interested in them for a while, but am only now considering actually getting one. I'd let to get some opinions from you guys on them so I know what I'm getting in to. Some info about my preferences, if it helps:
    -I like thin(ner) necks.
    -I like 24 frets.
    -I like light guitars.
    -I HATE locking trems

    Thank you, gentlemen.

    I've always liked them.. but.. the fly shape always reminded me of a jazz gutiar that wanted to be cool...

    The Maxxflys are more to my liking

    Shape aside, I've never had an issue with the quality of either type that ive played.

    They are not for me, but absolutely fantastic guitars for sure. If you like super light and scalpel like precision they are the guitar for you. Just feel too light and sound a little thin for my tastes, but construction is top notch.
