Nothing important, but that's really cheap if anyone is nearby to it.

BLUE MOJO:

I emailed him when that first popped on eBay.

The finish got the era-typical "cloudy" clear coat. The owner sanded that off and painted the top with blue Rustoleum spray paint.

I pointed out the pickup screws were odd, but he wasn't aware of them being swapped, though they clearly are not stock.

Yes, formerly had a GK-2 external pickup, screws sit in the holes.

And piezo has an issue - I would assume faulty Powerchip, but could be saddles.

If it was structurally solid, and had no loose fret issues, could be a good project for someone.

Thanks all

I had identified the seller in the US. Good to see that people are vouching for him. However price for shipping makes it a little ridiculous.

Thanks also for the lineout. I will give it a shot tomorrow with a 3D printer and keep you posted!

If the CL map is right the seller is 10 minutes from me so seeing it wouldn’t be hard, but I don’t think it’s worth wasting time on at this point due to the obvious problems and possible hidden ones.
The price was listed as $1395.

I asked to see the serial number, if it was ribbon cable or hard wire, and what gauge strings he had on it.
I’m certain my number is flagged now and even if I did want to buy it I probably can’t ,  lol, being the inquisitive sort I am.

Seems like a great time waster and if I didn’t have a couple fly’s already it might be fun to tackle for $5-600.

My main reason for posting was because it looked odd and for a working or easily to get working Mojo the price was ok. 
The input from everyone here tells me to avoid the situation and just restring the old hardtail since the temperature is only getting to 35 today....

Thanks for all the helpful suggestions and comments.

If the CL seller is watching this post text me, let’s talk about a realistic cash price.

It will be interesting to see if it gets off CL.

Pretty much all parkers are getting overpriced right now, I mean, they SHOULD be this price, but it doesn't match the economics. If you actually make musician $, you aren't going to be buying these. I'm serious when I say expect the cost of living to go way up soon. Just a few years ago I could buy and sell one or 2 a year, now I can't imagine picking one up as a "deal". I hope that changes soon, but I'm not holding my breath.

I traced and scanned mine for you. Hope that helps.

Seems like this would be a great project for someone with a 3D printer...

This eBayer has been selling 3D printed versions for quite a while ... 85 of them so far:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Parker-Fly-Guitar-Wall-Hanger/162522055447

However, the word bullwinkle is not present in the listing, so maybe people aren't seeing it when they search.

Looks like shipping to EU countries is $15.

I bought 3 of them from him and acutally know the seller and he lived in my state. They all fit my parkers great and no issue with them

I could see Ken saying it was a "one-off" due to the color, but I don't think it's a prototype.  Any prototype I've ever seen doesn't have a standard production serial number on it.  Ken doesn't strike me as the type of individual to deviate! :)

Agreed. It is isn't a prototype. I thought paying 5k for a 98 supreme was a pretty penny! It's cool but I would think being a hardtail it would fetch around 2500-3k max

Price drop....$995! is this a red flag ?

The seller might be monitoring the forum. Or it's just a coincidence.

Ask to see the serial #, then you can get a better look at the paint job.

The number is shown in the listing, but I don't remember if it was there before. Looks to me like an original red finish that was repainted on the front following some modifications.

Regarding what to do about it ... beats me. I elect to sit back and observe the outcome.

Its a tough one. Ask to see the serial #, then you can get a better look at the paint job. Its going to take some work to get it all going right, but you can ask right out if its a factory paint job. I'm assuming he's going to have to ship it to you, so there's that. Keep it under $1000!

(wasn't there someone on the forum with a Lakewood, CO location?)
