It's Here it's Glorious! The Parker Fly Supreme 1998!!
« on: December 19, 2018, 04:06:09 PM »
My Parker Fly Supreme 1998 arrived and it is glorious! These are a bit heavier than your typical fly. The sound is crystal clear, warm and bright. Sustain that is just astonishing. This is definitely the most unique Parker Fly I have ever laid hands on. There is no camera or picture that can do it justice. I am extremely lucky to have stubblemed on this beautiful work of work and even more lucky that my business is growing to allow me to afford such an axe. This guitar will cut right through a mix. The big leaf maple leaves you with your jaw on the floor. Enjoy the pics!

Great pictures !  Thanks for posting.
Yes, the weight is noticeably higher compared to other Flys, especially an Artist or Spanish Fly.  Maple and Spruce are at quite opposite ends of the wood spectrum, at least regarding density. 
I have my Supreme on display next to my PRS, which is fun.
Congratulations!

Thanks! The Spanish fly I have is extremely light due to lack of hardware. The Sitka Spruce sounds amazing and I love playing it. The artist and supreme are noticeably heavier and it sustains much longer than my classic. What year is your supreme?

I really don't know if the pickups were original.  From what I've heard the Gen 2's came stock with some guitars in that time.   
I plugged mine in last night after reading your post.  Glorious indeed !

Mine are definitely gen 1 as you can easily identify due to the very small dimarzio writting on the pickup. What is also cool is swapping the bridge for gen 2 and leaving the gen 1 in the neck.
