Hi Scoubidou.
What you want are frets with no tang - the part that gets hammered into wooden fretboards.
There are some other posts on this forum about the lack of Stainless fretwire so I am not sure someone here will be able to help you find glue-on fretwire.
This guy: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Parker-fly-deluxe-pre-Washburn-spares-stainless-tangless-frets-for-carbon-board-/222212104551?rmvSB=true&clk_rvr_id=1119618885311&nma=true&si=eU0EPaaZGDIh5xzZDD5KDM47cYA%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
was selling a set on Ebay.  Contact him.  Maybe he still has them.

Wiguitar on ebay has rolls of uncut like this. Not sure why others are steering you away. They are misinformed

With Parker closing the US shop it will be difficult to find their tangless fretwire outside eBay being they sold off their inventory.

You could try Emerald Guitars, I believe their build process is similar with the carbon fiber fretboard and tangless SS frets.

Cheers

If you search the forum,  there is listed the manufacturer for these. However,  one of our members is trying to get them to make these for them. I don't believe they will be able to purchase however because this is a proprietary part of a Parker guitar system. Wiguitar on ebay is a good seller. I have even myself purchased his leftover Fret wire in case I need it someday. If you want from me,  I can send to you. Please PM me if interested.  I'm only doing this to help out a forum member,  as I have done many times before. Some people here on the forum are not nice like me.

People leave negative feedback for sellers for many reasons.  Most of them not deserved. I have personally spent over $2000.00US with wiguitar on ebay. So he is OK.

TinMachine is right Scoubidou.  I would not worry about one bad experience with Ebay.  Wiguitar should be able to sell you what you need at a very good price.  Go for it.

I've had many transactions with wiguitar too, including fretwire.   If you change your mind - he's one of the good guys on eBay.

He doesn't always get it right,  but he will make it right if you allow him to do so. There is actually a really funny video out there someone made if you know wiguitar real full name.
