Parker Fly USA Bass 03
« on: August 07, 2012, 08:33:57 AM »
Hi folks,

My first post here as Ive just got myself a USA Fly Bass adn have to say how impressed I am with the instrument and the diversity available from the Piezo and JJ Dimarzio pups. The Quilted Maple Sunburst finish is second to none. Quite a rarity here in the UK, saying that, its the first ive seen in 25 yrs of playing.

Just a quick hello

Cheers

Col

Wow, that's really cool.  Aesthetically, I tend to like the look of the new MaxxFly Bass a little better, but I have no doubt that the build quality / fit / finish on yours is through the roof.  Congrats!

... and welcome to the Forum!  :)

Hello,
Do you have any idea of the history of this bass (provenance)? From what I understand, the sunburst finishes are extremely rare. I have seen 2 and understand that Ken Parker has one himself. Yours will be the third I've seen, and wonder who painted it. Here's mine.

Thanks for any info.

Good to have a few more Parker bass players joining and more active in the forum, there's so few of you. Welcome Voodoosnake!
