Silkscreen is only one way to do it, I think they also did dry rub on transfers, a "custom" water slide could work too.

Who's the new guy?  Didn't see the silver burst...

I have 3 gold Parker decals and I also have the silkscreen that escapefromgorillacity mentions (mine is the deluxe one I think, compliments of wiguitar)

He replied to my classified ad looking for broken Flys, he and I chatted via email. He got a deluxe from a guy he worked with and finished the paint. It's missing a back, springs, and knobs, serial number and fret markers. I'm still trying to figure out a way to swing the cash to grab it!
I have guitars, most are beyond my playing level, but I love them all!

Here's another that I probably shouldn't post here.

But y'know, Leilani would look great behind Satin Blue!

It's beautiful, but she decided to keep with her Parker PM10.

She tried my other DF on the gig, and decided the size was too big for her.

Even though the DF is lighter, the PM fits a petite female body better.

But that blue is nice.

Thanks,

Seems like a new one pops up every month:

https://reverb.com/item/5379086-2007-parker-maxx-fly-df524

Which hopefully means there are enough in circulation to last a long long time.

The forum is cheap enough to operate, so if it ever actually happens we can just chip in to keep it functional!

Still logging in occasionally to check for news. The only recent update was 2017 ยป 2018, so nothing to get the enthusiasm going. :-X  :P
I'm glad the forum is still around though and hope it will continue.

In the worst case of a future shutdown and an admin reading this:
Contact me,  I'd be interested in keeping the forum alive on my own server, if only as a knowledge base of posts long forgotten and a playground for the regular Parker nuts.

Greetings...
Nef

There are no plans for a shut down at this point. Customer service is still active. This is all I know at this point but if the forum's existence is ever in jeopardy, I'll be open to all options.

Cool!

Here's hoping "Jeopardy" remains a game show and never a forum option

I haven't been able to log in here for a month or more. I tried with Firefox and Chrome.

I put my name and password in, and I get a message that said my session expired. I don't know how I got in today, it was my fourth try.

I thought the forum had gone away. I'm glad it hasn't and I hope I can log in tomorrow.

Sounds like a cookies issue - I check the site each day out of habit; and have always been signed in.
