Information on the PDF80 here:
http://www.parkerguitars.com/products/pdf/PDF80.html

The pickups are designed by Seymour Duncan, but not made in the USA. They're good, IMO. Basically copies of the Duncan JB bridge and Jazz neck. I have one and like it. It lists for $800 but is available for less than that in the US.

Now, the PDF80s I've seen don't say PARKER on the pickups, they say Duncan USM. I don't know if there are real models like you describe or if it might not be a real Parker. There may be differences in models available outside the USA. I think others have posted about this - do a search of past forum posts.

You can get the pdf series for around $300 used on evil Bay.  I have 5 of these along with some of the older USA Parker guitars and 3 of the newer USA radial series. They are all good. The pdf series are a bargain and can easily add the graph tech piezo system.

I have 2 PDF's a stock 105 and a highly modified 70 the mods make it closer to a "75".
Both guitars are better than any other mass produced name brand for the money.
Try to buy the guitar with the tremolo and piezo's since that's as close to a Fly as it gets and it's simpler than modding IMO.
eBay or Reverb.com are both sites worth checking.
Good luck!
