Check out this "Fly Deluxe"
« on: May 08, 2017, 03:34:28 AM »
I haven't been on here in awhile, but I came across this and figured it was worth sharing.

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Parker-Guitars/Fly-Deluxe-Solid-Body-Electric-Guitar-113072820.gc

I'm not too well versed in all of the different Parker models other than the Fly, but I definitely know this is no Deluxe. It looks like a P series with upgraded pickups to me, but I don't think I've seen that layout of the controls on a P series before. Interesting...

Nitefly Mojo

It's actually a P series, the bridge is the giveaway.

Cool one! What do you think about the price? Is it medium, high?
To want to, is to be able to.

Someone changed the description at some point. Even though the link has 'deluxe' in it, the description now says P44 Pro - which is probably still wrong because it does look like a NiteFly Mojo based on the pickups.

It also seems to be hanging from the hook in a modified non-standard way, which suggests it's got the old-style headstock, which again suggests it's a NiteFly Mojo.

I also say Nitefly Mojo. If so, $599.99 is a good price for it.

I don't think this is a NiteFly Mojo - the logo on the headstock looks like a P44 logo (not P44 Pro either, just P44) - the bridge looks like a Wilkinson bridge (the NiteFly Mojo had a Parker bridge ?) and the control layout looks more like the second gen P44 than a NiteFly Mojo.

My guess is it's a P44 with pickups swapped for Seymour Duncans.

I think you called it. The photo was too crappy for me to be sure about the bridge or some other details, and the pickups fooled me; but I forgot to check the control layout, which is a clear giveaway.

Doh. I looked at a picture of my Mojo Nitefly and the controls are similar, but mirrored compared to the picture in that ad. Oh well, I guess I'm not a Parker expert anymore.
