These photos have graced the pages of the forum before. Pretty cool stuff, I'd love to have a chance to play them. Well, the right handed models at least. It's nice to see them posted again. There have been a lot of new members joining since it was last brought to light.

Yeah, well try suing anyone or anything that's based in god-knows-where-eastern-europe..... and they appear to be special/custom order and not production runs. If anything it demonstrates the tenacity of an individual whoever he maybe (TOM) to get his hands on a Fly with 7 strings, something a few forumites have placed on a plinth and proclaimed their personal grail. I wonder just what that cost and how Parker could go about making their own 7..... Do they have an R&D guy? Oh and the Lefty Version is also pretty interesting..... Food for thought

Well, it would take R&D to see how many 7 string player are out there and if it would be worth a run of 7 strings and could they sell them all?

Also, with the left handed guitars, I can't seem to find the exact article I read but I think the percentage of left handed players is something less than 10%, but I think it was more like 5% or less. So with a niche market like the Parker Fly, it would never be advantageous to make left handed guitars. All that said they may do it just to be "nice" or some R&D guy says "yeah we could break even on it" and it might happen. My guess is that it will be discussed at Parker on and off but it will never really happen.

But who knows, maybe the success of the DragonFly bolt will create a market for a left handed DragonFly bolt. I could see a carbon free lefty being much more "do-able" without costing a left arm and leg.

My 2 cents. -Luc

Yeah, that is a nice finish on it. I think Parker-USMC is missing the boat by not making a 7-string model. I should get a 7-string sometime, I've thought about it off and on for a few years.
