I immortalized a favorite shirt that I had in the 90s! That's what you see on my guitar.

Sure do. As much as I love my Parkers, I would never seriously disrespect other guitars. My Ovation Balladeer and '79 Music Man still get some face time. [^]1997 Sunburst Nitefly NFV4

What do you mean by what is it?  Its just a new Gen P-44.

(I personally prefer the older gen P-44 with the wilkonson)



Also, to add to my last post, I play many other guitars, but the only other guitar I prefer over a parker is Tom Andersons...And that is just over the P-44, i'm pretty sure I like the Fly's much more.

I'm not having a go, but that seems a really odd statement. I have a PM-10 as well as a Nitefly, and the PM10 is a very nice guitar, but only Andersons? No Grosh or Thorn or Driskill or GUS or Teuffel or... There are a lot of very nice guitars out there, and while Parker absolutely make some of them they certainly don't make 'em all!

It certainly seems strange to me to say that the only thing better than a Parker-branded Cort (or whoever it is that actually makes the P-Series) is an Anderson.

I agree. And, a custom guitar is no guarantee of perfection. A Fly will be more precisely manufactured than anything out there when it comes to the neck. I would probably take a high end Ibanez before anything else, because of the flat necks made for shredding.

prior to getting a fly I was an Ibanez guy. I have an RG3120 which still gets played occasionally (when I want to go nuts with a locking trem). I also have an RG350 with EMGs and a BTB450 bass. I'd always dream about getting a nice ibanez j-custom rg, but the funny thing about the fly is that, once I got it, my GAS for electrics pretty much disappeared (I may try to make room in the pocketbook for a caparison horus if the opportunity came up though).

a yamaha nylon electro, a dirt cheap strater guitar and an Ibanez S470.  They all hang on my wall wishing they were the parker in my hands.  it's tough being obsolete.

I had a custom archtop built for me in the late 70's by a very close friend who was a luthier. It was awful!!! And I mean awful, but he loved it! I couldn't understand why he loved it so much. It sounded great but played like a gigantic tree trunk in my hands. He had noticed my banana fingers and designed the neck accordingly. It worked for him but not for me! [;)]

Parker was the first guitar other than my old Gibsons and Fenders that, to me, actually felt like a musical instrument.  I actually prefer the shorter scale of Gibsons to Fenders, (and Parkers).  I guess with a 24 fret neck the scale has to be longer.  I know I've said this on the forum before, but currently my favorite guitar is my 1964 Epophone Coronet.  A double cutaway guitar with one P-90 pickup.  They've become really popular lately, being called "Epiphone Les Paul Juniors," and jumping in price from less than $1,000 up to over $6,000 in some cases.  I find that I play different guitars for different styles.  I had a strat built for me my John Suhr that I also use for recording these days.  It's a beautiful instrument that he made by hand to my specs for neck shape and pickup types.  I still love my 64 SG Special that I bought new and my 61 Les Paul SG that was a gift from the amazing Roy Buchanan.  I've always needed to play easily, high on the neck. (Which is what's so great, among other things, about Parkers). I actually like the sound of my 12 string Dan Electro better than my Rickenbacker.... forgive me, George....
