(Originally written by gratos-64/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Mahogany body, 22-fret maple fingerboard...

Two Parker humbuckers, volume control, tone control with push/pull (humbucker split function).

Tune-o-matic bridge...

UTILIZATION

The guitar is very well balanced and light (almost 6.6 lb.). Very good playability. The flat and wide neck makes shredding easy!!!

The body/neck junction makes access to the upper frets smooth.

Typical Parker look. If you don't know how these guitars look like, you only need to know that they are very original!

Good playability both sitting and standing.

Very simple pickup configuration. The split option provides a wide sound range...

SOUNDS

Very versatile instrument providing six pickup combinations... From a big Les Paul sound to a typical Fender sound...

The bridge pickup plays its role perfectly. I find the neck pickup sounds too round. It might be the only weak point of this guitar. The guitar has a long sustain and I like that (I like blues rock à la Gary Moore!!!)...

I'm thinking about buying a new pickup pair, Seymour Duncan, of course... The same pickups as on the more expensive Parker (JB Jazz in the neck position....).

This guitar is a lot of fun! Both for clean and fat heavy metal distortion sounds! The neck is extremely fast for solos! Enjoy!!!

OVERALL OPINION

Nice look, sober color, simple and effective configuration, good-quality components and manufacturing...

Typical Parker comfort, versatility and quality. The only weak point is the neck pickup with distortion. It's definitely not my taste... But it's an excellent budget guitar from a high-quality brand. If you have already played Parker high-range guitars (fly...) you won't be disappointed because this model does have the Parker spirit.

And considering the price you certainly won't regret your purchase!

It's a universal guitar: the look and sound of this P-42 fits the needs of heavy metal as well as rock and blues musicians.

I can't get enough of this guitar!!!
