"Understanding that the guitar is an instrument to be used live, we collaborated with Fishman Transducers to develop a proprietary dual pickup system to give this guitar a revolutionary set of tonal options previously unavailable to the acoustic player," states John Page, Division Manager for Parker Guitars. The result is an active pickup system that benefits from a variety of acoustic tones available through full-range magnetic and under-saddle pickups. The quiet hum-canceling neck position pickup has powerful, lightweight neodymium magnets to produce full and round acoustic sounds and a tonal signature reminiscent of electric guitar pickups. The sound of the magnetic pickup is complimented by a Fishman Acoustic Matrix® under-saddle pickup. Both XLR and 1/4" outputs are provided.
The P8E features a solid cedar top with rosewood binding and a solid flame maple back. It has flame maple sides, mahogany neck, an ebony fingerboard and bridge, and microdot inlays. Parker has opted for Grover Sta-Tite (97 series) gold machine heads. The butter bean buttons provide classic styling while the 14:1 gear ratio provides precise tuning. In addition, both the nut and saddle are bone.
