Wow. I havent even had this a year, and ive wrecked what it used to be

Parker Nitefly SA, Tobacco Sunburst color, D'addario .11 Strings
-----No normal pickups, Piezos not wired
-----GK3 pickup for guitar synthesizing
-----custom gloss black GK3 buttons
-----1 Standard chrome knob (GK3 volume)
-----Dunlop locking strap buttons
-----Matte Black Pickguard (made it myself)
-----13 pin synthesizer output, no 1/4 inch output
-----Input jack on the pickguard for using synthesizer effects on other guitars/keyboards/iPods

I have a thread in the Custon Parker section section about requests for crazy/unusual mods on a guitar for people who are too scared to do it to their own guitars

Actually, that's a pretty cool mod. It doesn't look wrecked at all.
Another forum member ordered a custom fly with no pickups or controls and used the piezos to hookup a midi interface. Another option would be to use the Ghost Mod mentioned in this forum and be able to use the piezos. Thus not needing the Roland pickup. Makes for a super clean look.

Very Cool!!  I have actually thought about doing something like this to one of my flys!  I primarily go thru a Roland VG-99 for my performances, so the mag pickups and piezo is not needed or used.  Makes for a very interesting look!  Thanks for the pictures!!

It reminds me of a Guitar Hero guitar, but yours is much cooler. [;)]

Funny you should mention that, because of the pickup being availible for MIDI, I actually use this guitar to play in rock band 3. Its so nice when my friends bring their hunks of plastic and i bust out a parker

Just showing this off before i take it apart and never make this unholy abomination of music again...

I thought it would be a good idea to make mounts for my guitar in my keyboard, and try to play both at the same time...It wasnt, not at all...anyways, here was my guitareyboard nitefly before i just split them back into a guitar and a makeshift guitar-like keyboard...Its just funny to look at.



Here is an official warning to you out there, DONT DO THIS, its terrible!

Thats me! Yes, I had a Tangerine Custom Hardtail with only RMC pickups, no controls. Great guitar but I had to sell it when unemployed 5 years ago.

I am reviving this old thread to see if anyone has pics of it, or knows its whereabouts?
