This is why it took from when I first played a parker in the mid 90's until they came out with the Dragonfly for me to actually buy one. 15 years for a silly design decision. Yes, that horn is different - and there's a REASON nobody else ever did that... ;-)

Looks like a legit reason to get a silicone implant  ;)

I am with Alex. Stop hunching over. What the heck you looking at? Yo mamma would not be happy with that posture. AND, stop that jumping up and down. Geez. What's that all about?

I raised the guitar so it hangs from my shoulders even when sitting. If you don't lean on the guitar you can't get a bruise. Raising the guitar and lean back. It might not look cool but you have optimum access to the frets and you learn to stop looking at the fret board.

This.

I have just had the luxury of a week away with nothing to occupy me but a Fly, a Kemper and a laptop with a load of sheet music. But I disagree that it doesn't look cool. It's the classic rock star pose. Head back and guitar pointed at the stars!

yes, shorten the strap a bit, and keep its head up where you can see it, and you won't have a bruising problem. It will also make the Fly even easier to play
