Sold: 2013 Custom Fly Mojo
« on: June 12, 2019, 01:06:17 PM »
So the time has come to prepare to buy another guitar, as a result, I have to look at what guitars I am not currently utilizing, and then sell one and regret it for #$@%ing ever.

This is assuming that billy will eventually give my other mojo a clean bill of health and then I’ll spend a bunch of money cleaning ip up and I’ll be in mojo business again.

So.

For a brief period of time, the Bellamy Brothers were endorsers of Parker Guitars. Check out their facebook page for a ton of pictures of all the parker they use:

Here they are playing some older Parkers and even older hits:

The thing about these guys is that they are country players so they play their parkers like acoustics.
This one has the nut filed for 14s on the top! Have a look at the nut here, from a previous topic:

I acquired this guitar from their old bass player, Wally Dentz, who unloaded it for them. In turn I sold my purple 2012 mojo. I miss my purple mojo. Let it go for 1800, paid 3200. It was an awesome guitar.

This one is just as awesome, and equally pretty.

Bellamy 2013 Mojo
P 14208013 MM
142 (day of year) May 22nd
080 (Production Number)
13 (2013)

Its been on the road, but there are no chips or dents. Some pick swirls, but nothing to complain about.
The piezo control switch has been swapped out, because I’m assuming when you play acoustic all the time, that’s the switch you are always using. Have a look.












Everything works the way it should, and after a year of playing it as an acoustic, with giant 13s on the top, I switched the spring and set it up with 9s. WHEW! My fingers once again forgive me, but my Pat Martino albums mock me every day.

With the sperzels properly adjusted, the grooves in the nut being cut for 14s on top don’t seem to care when you put a lower gage in and the thing stays in tune perfectly like a parker should. I had plans to modify this one, but kept it as an acoustic for so long that I realized that value in my arsenal and left it. Now I’ve got plans for another guitar and have to pay for that!

Comes with all the tools and stuff and a Y cable. I’d like to see $3000 but I’m not holding my breath.
I’m just sad that I can’t buy another one of these whenever I want because some company thought guitar-making should be profitable.

Ha!

Thanks! It was prettier than my purple one, but only slightly.

If I can get my act together I'll post this one eBay and Reverb over the weekend.
I guess that means take better pictures!

It just occurred to me that it has the same switch that Notes needed replacing replaced, and it has the part number on it. Sigh. Late again!

I dropped the price on this to $2200 for a while. Anyone care to guess what the fees to sell it will be?
Eventually the last to jobs I did will materialize into paychecks, then I guess I'll make it too expensive again.
