Hello everyone.  I finally got to install the new graphtech saddles in my Parker Fly Supreme pre-refined 2000. The new saddles improve the acoustic sound that comes from the old fishman board. Amazing

Yeah sadly even searching within my Pinterest I can't find them :( I was pretty bummed about that

But what is your Pinterest user name, I could maybe find the work done by searching via your name

I have guitars, most are beyond my playing level, but I love them all!

Greetings. I want to upload the photos again to be of help. How can I upload them? Any recommendation?

With this modification the piezo works best. A warmer sound.

I get this when I click your links.

¡Vaya! No hemos encontrado la página

But you post the images on a hosting site, and paste the link here like you did. You can also paste the link inside img code and they will show in your post.

Clicking the monalisa icon above the smileys gives you the code, just put your link in there.

[img@]yourlinkhere[/img@]

Remove the @ inside the brackets, which I added so the code displays vs a broken link.

Whoaa, nice Supreme.  That's a real beauty. 
That may be the first time I've seen the Hirose-style connectors on guitar.  Are you a hobbyist?

Thank you very much for your words. The truth is that it is a beautiful guitar. It also sounds amazing with dimarzio generation 2. Se's probably my best Parker. When you play in a band or you are in a recording she is always very present. She has her own way to sound, her own frequencies. And it is also signed by the great Steve Lukather himself. I'm a Spanish musician who loves the Parkers. I do my best to keep my little ones as well prepared as possible. Recently my friend and teacher Billy helped me to stabilize a bridge in my mojo.
