I GOT ONE!!
« on: January 19, 2009, 07:38:49 AM »
Thanks to GUITARMANUK and SIMONLOCK, I finally got an old Deluxe S/N 308028BP in Emerald Green, it needs a bit of a setup but only cost $995 GBP (roughly $1400), the action is waay high and the vibrato switch was jammed beneath the control cover but other than that she's sweet, loving the weave pattern on the back showing through the finish. Very happy! [:D]

Excellent, glad to hear you managed to get one.  Not sure what I did to help, but glad I did.  Once it is all set up, you will love it.  The only other guitar you will ever want to buy is another Parker, they are addictive.

She sure is purdy.

You have to get her set up right because you are in for the guitar playing experience of your life.

Enjoy [:)]

congratulations on the new fly, it's so nice to see more and more people in the UK are buying these guitars. I leant my nitefly out a few weeks back to my guitar teacher so that one of his pupils could check it out and see what he thought, He fell in love and will be looking to get one himself!

where did you pick this fly up from?

Hey guys, sorry I've not been around, oh my god this guitar is so easy! I'm doing stuff on my Parker I've NEVER been able to do on any other guitar (I used to work in a guitar shop many years ago so I've played rather a selection!) I picked this beauty up at Chandler Guitars http://www.chandlerguitars.co.uk/ in Kew UK, thanks guys! [;)]
