PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location at NAMM '09 where she stops by the Parker Guitars booth. In this clip, we get to see one of the elusive Adrian Belew signature guitars which features a Line 6 variax that includes 25 tones and instrument models. We also get a chance to check out Adam Dutkiewiez's (Killswitch Engage) signature guitar which is the first to feature EMG pickups. In addition, we get our hands on their latest project, the MIDIFly. It includes a fully-operating midi system built into the guitar.
