i do use my musicman axis sport as much as the parker. i dont really play my strat or 335 much anymore. i think that the parker has a good variety of tones but overall tonally the mm kills. i do think the parker neck is more comfy as is the body design so its always a toss up when it comes time to leave for the gig. i never bring more than one gtr.

My Ibanez JEM is still my main rock guitar. Incredible instrument. It has a lot more bite than my fly mojo (pickups help there). It's a really nice guitar. I only own 3 guitars... my JEM, a Fly Mojo, and a P38... I use them for different tasks, so in the end, they all kinda get the same play time. Love 'em all!

"I play the Alvarez-Yairi quite a bit around the house. Next to the Parker it has the best neck of any guitar I have ever played."

It's true....the necks are fast [:)]

I like my Alvaez Yari too. Awesome handmade guitars. My Dad bought it for me as a teen over 30 years ago. It does need an adjustment but I don't have a luthier that I trust it with yet.

I have an old cheap Harmony Sovereign acoustic that I have tricked out for easy play by a local luthier. It sounds great. My Grandfather helped me buy it very used at a yard sale over 35 years ago.

I also have a Larrivee Parlor which is nice but I am selling it to help finance another Fly.

The Gibson es137 Custom model is very nice and one of the most beautiful finishes I have ever seen. Its also up for sale for the same reason.

I use my Strat Plus and Ibanez JS-1000 quite a bit.  They both play well, sound great, and it's easy to get superb tone for recording.  My American Tele also gets recorded a LOT (and not just for the brittle lead stuff you'd expect.)  My Les Paul is simply too heavy - 12 pounds!  I do use it for recording too, but that's all.  (Too bad, it used to look great under stage lights!)

My most recent acquisition has been a Hohner G3T.  I LOVE travelling with it, but I don't care much for the tone or trem.  I'm really dying to get a real Steinberger - one of the Music Yo USA ones.  But since I've been on the headless jones (Thanksgiving Day, to be precise) they haven't had one to sell me.  Talk about aggravating.  That's how I ended up with the Hohner.  The headless thing makes a tremendous amount of sense, and is very easy to get enthralled with.  And if you've ever done a string change with double ball strings - OH MY GOD!  It's the way string changes SHOULD be.  It literally takes less than 15 minutes, including stretching the strings.  The first time, I spent a half hour.  I kept stretching them, then checking the tuning, expecting them to be flat.  Once I came to the realization that I was just wasting time it hit me.  It's almost TOO easy!

I've been spending too much time on the Steinie forum - but those folks are very jazzed about their TransTrem and S-trem's.  I don't care about transposing - I want the S-trem model.  (Although the CONCEPT of the trasposing tremolo is VERY cool - I just know I wouldn't use it...)  I'll report back if it ever becomes a reality.

But back to the topic, I agree with you Yoyo: I LOVE my Fly, but I won't give up the others.  They DO all have a voice; I find different songs in each guitar.  (But I still plan on adding a Classic or Mojo to my stable, after the Steinberger!)

I know this is an older thread, but I came across one of my all time favorite "other" guitars. I bought one of these (same everything, thought it might be mine!) in 1975 and then sold it about a year later. One of the biggest mistakes I ever made. Thought you would enjoy seeing one: This ones for sale right now for $3,500. It hurts me to see it!

Ha-Ha... that makes the Fly upper horn seem tame! It's a beauty, though. I have a very fond memory of playing a brand new BC Rich Eagle (1979?), as a kid in a music store. I was leaning toward chasing that dream when I got sidetracked by Parker's, no regrets.

The upper horn never bothered me! My wife just saw this picture and thought I was buying it! I've never loved a guitar as much as I loved that one, I'd better stop looking at her!!! [:I]

My main other guitars would be an Ibanez MMM1 (28" neck-thru baritone) and an Ibanez Talman (composite body).

There's other guitars beside Parkers?! [:D][;)]

I also have an Ibanez S470FM, flame maple, British Racing Green with cosmo chrome hardware. And a red flame maple HRR '57 Strat made in Japan with a white pearloid pickguard and an original Floyd Rose bridge on it. They're both nice guitars, but definitely not a Parker.

Oh yeah, also the Frankenstrat project guitar that I built. It has a wah circuit built into it, too. [:0]
