Got 'er in there.

Is this the one you've been telling me is "Trans Cherry Burst"?

Nope. This one:


I believe the "FA/CS" on the hang tag stands for "Fly Artist/Cherry Sunburst." Of course I've been wrong before about lots bigger stuff. It may be one of Parkers ugliest finishes- the front is gorgeous, but the back of the guitar, instead of black, is a bizarre "Montezuma Brown."
I see you've got a trans black BURST, but didn't see a plain trans black in your stack.

That Artist is gorgeous. It is very similar to the one Bill owns.

That is actually one of my favorite finishes.

Alas, I have sold that guitar. Only 28 made !

It would make since to call it a trans cherry burst instead of black cherry burst as there is no black band around this one.

Love the trans black flame too.

Parker does have some awesome finishes.

Oh I see, I meant that I have added the Trans Black as you have suggested. It is now the first of the Transparents; I've added the AB-signed one to the Trans Burst section as a Cherry Sunburst; I will change the ex-Bill from Black Cherry Burst to Cherry Sunburst. (Remember, if your computer is using cookies, you have to reload the Guide page to see my changes.)

The one Bill owns...
Wow! I bought mine off that picture on eBay in November '06. LOL Tell Bill that his picture got hijacked to sell me my guitar! My piezos went out last year and I ended up sending the guitar to Mundelein to have it "refined," hence the missing pot & spare toggle.

Thats funny Nigel. Cool story but I think the pic is from 2008 unless I'm confused. I do remember seeing Flys with a similar pic against a wooden fence though. BTW Alex actually took that pic I think when the Artist droped by his place for a visit.

The finish on yours has a little more yellow spruce shinning through whereas mine was a little more smokey. But they are very similar and I love both.

Mine went to a caring home and may very well pop up on the forum again as the new owner pops in from time to time. [;)]

Thanks, Larry- I try!
I do it the hard way: shoot film with my Nikon SLR, then have the pics developed to disc.
