Remember those broken Flys from Vegas? Well they have been fixed...ahummm if you can call it that and are up for sale. Please stay away from these. These are garbage and I would hate to see someone attempt to make one work only to be sorely disappointed at the out come.

They'll always be closer to sows' ears than silk purses.

This is an outrage. The necks will always be cattywampus. I hope the serial numbers were obliterated or else were documented to alert us.

I saw them on Craig's list out of Washington DC. No need to name the guy just know if you see an ad for Parker Fly bodies and necks this is the pictures he sends. I asked him if honestly thought that those repairs would make a playable decent sounding instrument and he got nasty so I guess his answer was affirmative.

True, see this is why I don't buy guitars online (eBay/Craigs'). If one of y'all regular fellas I been knowing for 11ty-nine yrs it'd be different. They refinish them well enough you might not know you had a turd until your money was gone like the swallows.
