I'm pretty sure that one has been on eBay before ... and I wouldn't call it the worst.

I've seen Flys with parts crudely hacked off or broken, areas of the finish burnt or sanded away, etc. At least someone exercised some creativity and finesse with that one.

Ya, the Steinberger Fly, or FrankenStein or... wait...no, I've got it: Flyburger.   
It's kind of shocking to see how modded this thing is.  If you love the Parker Fly form (which I do), it's almost offensive.
On the other hand, I agree with Syber.  Someone actually put a lot of thoughtful work into this beast.  I have to give them credit.

I agree, I appreciate the guy's spirit in putting a Fishman and a headless whammy on a Parker.  I have a Fly that has all the pickups and electronics removed, just a Roland pickup, so I get that. The guy even took the time to make a form-fitted case for it.

 I think the thing that offends me is the amputated top horn.  It just makes me vom in my mouth a little whenever I look at it.

Wasn’t there a sighting of a similarly dehorned Fly on the forum, Like 2 - 3 yrs ago...?
Without all the headless fiddle faddle, just a clipped horn.
