Ken Parker is a true visionary in the world of the modern electric and arch top guitars. His revolutionary “Parker Fly” design was a paradigm shift when it first appeared but as you will see - it didn’t quite turn out like Ken had planned.
In contrast to other episodes of Luthier Stories - this is a short-form interview. Think of it as a haiku - take note of every word Ken says because there is a lot to take in. This was filmed at the start of the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival as everyone was getting set up and ready for the show. I was very happy to get the chance to get Ken Parker on tape for this one - I hope you enjoy it.
Until next time, stay tuned
