Product Description

 kenandyoyofinal     parkersigjnature        Ken Parker revolutionized the solid body electric guitar. Now he is reinventing and perfecting the acoustic archtop guitar. While he is renowned for the Parker Fly, his breakthrough solidbody carbon fiber electric guitar, building fine acoustic archtop guitars has been his quest since the mid seventies.

Ken is a scholar of musical instrument building. His understanding of traditional instrument building together with a master craftsman’s command of tools and materials has allowed him to develop novel solutions to the wide array of design challenges the acoustic archtop guitar poses. His influences range from ancient Mediterranean luthiers to contemporary wizards in marine and aerospace composites.
Ken’s new archtop guitars sound powerful, rich, and open, with a sensitivity and responsiveness that have to be heard to be believed. Although each guitar has a name, there are no “models”.   Each instrument becomes a unique evolutionary step.
Please contact us directly to order a Ken Parker archtop guitar. Prices start at $30,000.00 Ken Has makes only a a very limited amount of this spectacular  guitar.  Each one is a master piece.
