1997 Nitefly pickups S,S,H. Wanted
« on: March 05, 2018, 07:53:05 AM »
I bought a 1997 Parker Nitefly without the middle nor the Humbucker. Does anyone have ones they'd like to sell so I can return this to its former glory?

I live in the countryside in Japan. The city is a 2-hour train ride away. I don't think I could find them there anywhere. Any help finding original Parker Nitefly S,S,H pickups would be a big help! A stereo cord would be helpful too.

Look here:

(The cable is not brown. Many of the seller's photos just look that way.)

Sorry, can't help with pickups.

Did Mossman follow up with you?

For the humbucker, if I had to guess, the closest thing is probably a dimarzio air norton.  Maybe a fred.

Without the carbon skin and the thicker body, I'm not sure if the fly pups would sound the same- maybe better, maybe worse.

Not sure what they used in the mid position.  Anyone know if the single coils were custom wound like the humbuckers were?

I understand you'd like to make it closer to factory, but putting your favorite pups in there shouldn't pose too many problems.
