1996 Deluxe, all standard, no mods
« on: October 07, 2012, 02:14:16 PM »
Got this at Sam Ash in Manhattan when I was almost 19. I'm going to be 34 this month. My favorite guitar, though recently I was pondering a refinish. A year later I had the opportunity to snag a 1997 Nitefly V3 and I did because I loved the Parker style, workmanship and unique design philosophy. I'll get the Nitefly in another shot at some point.

Its a basic black fly.

She still looks like new Twank! Except for the replacement knobs.   ;)

danjazz,

I'm not sure the replacement knobs are working out. They don't cover the bolts at the bottom of the post. I need a real alternative, otherwise I might as well just put the old ones back on.

That's a Jodi Head strap. Still available on Jodi's online store, I think. Black white n red works for me.
