Fabbo collection Simon. I love the shot in their cases. I presume you've got the best "quiver".
The only thing that exists is this moment now.

Simon, ever try a single cutaway?

Originally posted by simonlock Strand I've never played a SingleCut and don't intend to. There's just too many features that I could live without. I don't like the bridge, I don't like the look of the body shape and I don't like the weight or lack of piezos. Not only that but if it's a Fly it should've had 24 frets. I'd play any Nitefly before one of those. It's too close to Gibson and you couldn't pay me enough to play one of those monstrosities. Lol sorry about the rant I needed to vent.



I thought that you'd be feeling that-a ways.
But heavens, to deny yourself the experience of even trying one out in a store? Dann Glenn likes them--says it's the best guitar he's ever played. Of course, it looks like he's no longer on the endorser list and his website shows him playing s Strat-type of thing, at least that 's the way it looked a few weeks back.

What's a fret or two? Bloomfield, Santana, Clapton all got along with 21 or 22.... And 6.5 pounds ain't an anchor exactly. And the look...the look is classic. Like a melody maker, a Les Paul Junior, a Supro, etc., etc. Would you prefer a Flying V, explorer, Firebird, Jaguar (copies or reissues) over a Parker Single Cut?

How often do you blend in the piezo pickups, and to what degree, vs. the mag. PUPs? Or do you often or occasionally go totally with the piezos (not counting the Nylon)?

Gotta say, I am with Simon on this. I don't like the single cut. Looks way too contrived for my taste. And it's way too pedestrian in its appointments.

It's just a dumbed down design. And that wouldn't be a bad thing for Gibson or Fender or PRS or one of them.
But coming from Parker, it's kind of a slap in the face.

I don't see how the SC is a lesser guitar just because it's perhaps not what Ken originally envisioned.  Yes, it's true that the Fly is an evolution in the guitar but if selling a SC version that appeals to a broader audience assists in sales then I say go for it!  Maybe those playing a SC will then want to try a Fly.  Just because we own a certain style of guitar doesn't mean the other styles are less worthy.  

I'm not disagreeing with the fact that a Fly is incredible but maybe a "dumbed-down" version is what the line needed.  If it brings the Parker to a new audience then we ought to maybe applaud that.

By  the way Simon... H  O  L  Y     C  R  A  P.  Nice collection.

Simon, is it YOU systematically deleting your threads, or is someone hacking things?
