another Parker Adrian Belew Signature Model in the works!
the Adrian Belew Dragonfly*.
for those of you who don't know much about Parker guitars
the Dragonfly is an updated model of the Parker Fly
which features a slightly more conventional body shape,
larger headstock, and different neck shape.
the new AB Dragonfly will be in a more affordable
price range for those of you who can't own
the Ferrari of electric guitars, the AB Parker Fly.
the Dragonfly has all the same features except the Line-6 Variax.
this means you still have a midi-capable guitar which uses
the standard 13-pin connector along with a Sustaniac pickup
in the neck position, a DeMarzio in the bridge position,
and a Piezo pickup for acoustic guitar sounds.
one big difference in the design: it will allow you
to play the guitar through the 1/4 inch plug output
(standard on every electric guitar)
and still have the Sustaniac and magnetic pickups,
therefore bypassing the guitar's midi capabilities.
great for when you just want to jam somewhere.
it's a gorgeous instrument weighing only 5 pounds.
as with the AB Fly I'll be choosing super quality high gloss
custom car finishes to make the Dragonfly dazzle on stage.
we have just begun the process of designing
and manufacturing the guitars so I'll let you know
a target availability date and other details
including the price as soon as I know.
of course I'm extremely excited to attach my name again
to what is certain to be a superb Parker electric guitar which
plays like butter, sounds fabulous, and stays perfectly in tune.
the Mercedes of electric guitars? maybe so.
