Parker Fly Deluxe bridge tilt forward
« on: April 26, 2018, 06:44:03 PM »
Hi everyone!

My first post here - since I just purchased a pre-refined Parker Fly Deluxe, from 1995 I believe. After setting it up with D'Addario NYXL 10-46 strings and 10 springs that came with the guitar, the tremolo bridge looked like this in the "bend down" only mode. The bridge I can find on online pictures never looked like this, so this got me worried.

I think I read somewhere that it's best to have less than 13 thread showing on the spring crew, currently I have 11. I attached a picture of the cavity too.

Is this normal? Should I find someone who's familiar with Parker Fly to do the set up?

Thanks!
Xiyu

Nah. Each person's setup can be different depending on string gauge, spring gauge, and other stuff.

Looks fine to me. How does it feel and play?

Thanks for your reply!

It feels and plays awesome, the action is pretty low but that's how I set it up though.
