    I kind of looked at like...take a brand new Vela, add a trem (which maybe makes it sound a little less like a Vela)...and make it sound like anything else you want too...

    And as for why he left Parker, sounds like he wasn't getting much love...

    "GREAT Guitars. Ken Parker-not involved. A series of my reps were let go or quit...it got old asking for attention."

    "I replaced the fingerboards of 4 guitars MYSELF. Because I knew what would happen if I sent them back"

    So does anybody know when (or if) Egyptian Gold has hit the market yet? I really dig this color.
