This particular guitar is an interesting entry from Parker. Parker Guitars is usually thought of as a very forward-thinking company; their Fly guitars completely rocked the musical instrument world on their introduction in the early 1990s, and features like carbon-fiber backing and fretboards, stainless steel frets, and piezo-acoustic systems were heralded as the stuff of the future!

This P-36 is a lot more of a traditional instrument, with fewer "futuristic" amenities. It does still includes the distinctive Parker shape, as well as the Fishman piezo system. Other than that, this is basically a Telecaster! It has none of the carbon fiber, stainless frets, or Parker vibrato system, but it does what it does very well.


This guitar, like most Parkers, is very versatile. It includes the ability to switch between the magnetic pickups only, piezo only, or a blend between the two. The piezo is pretty cool - some interesting acoustic-type sounds can be hand, and onstage, it certainly gets the job done. Otherwise, the magnetic pickups are very similar to a Tele - a bit noisy (they are single coils), yet bright and cutting on the bridge pickup, warm and smooth on the neck.


Compared to other Parkers, this guitar is fairly traditional. For a Parker enthusiast that really wants an inexpensive Telecaster-style guitar for the arsenal, this is a fine choice. Others, that just want a good, versatile guitar that stands out, will also be happy with this axe.
