IN STOCK: 2012 Ken Parker Archtop "Lucky"

 View Images
Lucky is Ken's personal guitar and has been in the hands of some of the world's finest guitarists and has been on loan for special projects they've done. So, you are likely to encounter Lucky in some unusual places, when you least expect it.

It's a very old instrument that is also Ken's most modern instrument as it benefits from his evoltion.

Top: Sitka Spruce
Back & Sides: Curly Mama Mahogany
Neck Veneer: Mahogany from "The Tree", quite literally the most famous lumber tree in the world, cut in Belieze in the late 60's
Neck Core: Douglas Fir
Fingerboard, Pickguard, Bridge and Other Bits: Ebony
Tailpiece: Mokume Gane
Tuners: Gotoh Stealth gears embedded in the headstock with Ebony cover
Pickup: Parker/Fishman rare Earth humbucking

15.9" across the lower bout
2.5" thick at the end block, 2.25" thick at the neck block
25.5" scale

This Archtop is not for sale.
Ken Parker has generously loaned "Lucky" to The Luthier's Collection for a limited time.
The Luthier's Collection is a representative of Ken Parker Archtops and I have had many clients ask about the possibility of acquiring a Ken Parker Archtop to try out before purchasing. Well here it is.
It cannot be shipped to test so you will need to schedule an appointment. I am available most days except Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday after 3pm.
