Montreal Guitar Show 2011
Ken Parker Stella
The latest guitar by Ken Parker is named Stella and features minimal bracing for a featherlight feel. The bridge is hollow, and the tailpiece hooks around a pin. The neck sits on top of the guitar rather than in a pocket, so it can be replaced with a 7-string or baritone neck just by replacing the bridge and tailpiece. The action of the guitar is adjusted by the neck angle, rather than the bridge. The string tension can also be used as a tone control, adjusting for more mellow or strident sounds.
