Here’s a Fly Mojo on the Denver Craigslist .


https://denver.craigslist.org/msg/d/denver-parker-fly-mojo-electric-guitar/6792073571.html


Can anyone tell me why the two screws between the pickups and the bridge?

Are the folks here able to tell me anything more about these?

Seems like a fair price.  I have a bit of money available right now I might be willing to part with.

Thank you one and all.

Cheers!

I texted the seller with questions so I’ll have to wait and see.

If everything is working that is a very good deal. Those screws are from a Roland hex pickup that a previous owner installed, removed,  and left the screws to fill the holes.

Seller says: "No one cares about the acoustic pick-ups in this guitar anyway. What matters is how it sounds with the electric pick-ups."

Wrong!

Also ... why does it have a blue front and a red back?

I like when I read a listing (like this one) that, in the first sentence says “mint condition”, and a few sentences later describes something that’s not working properly.  :o

Alright!
Thank you for the input, just what I hoped for...what a great forum..

The blue front paint looks sort of oddly poor, and yes, the “no one cares” routine is a complete disregard for the guitar’s true worth and versatility.

Ok a Roland pickup that’s a viable explanation.

I agree it’s a great price for a working guitar.
So far no reply to text.

Every picture tells a story don’t it?

Thanks for the help.

This is an interesting Fly.  The finish appears to be satin vs. gloss, but hard to tell from the photos.  Also the top color is unusual.  I'd say it's either Italian plum (satin finish) or maybe a non-Parker color if the guitar was refinished.

looks like a non-pro refinish,  but hard to tell  for certain from the pic.

Price drop....$995! is this a red flag ?  ???   

What’s the forum’s opinion?
If I make a cash offer for a mojo project I really don’t need?
 How much then?
(Snarky comments ok!)

It also looks like the pole pieces on the pickups are different on the E strings.  Personally,  I wouldn't buy it without being able to fully assess it in person. It could be a great deal, but could be a headache.
