NITEFLY GUITARS / Re: fret wire - USA Nitefly
« Last post by billy on Today at 03:14:21 PM »
great news, Blaz,love to hear it worked out for you! 

Personally not a fan of the crimson guitars method here, he seemingly didn't do any research about how/why the frets are attached this way, and I'm surprised he didn't route slots in for tangs before leveling everything with a file.  That said, he did manage to extend the life of the guitar, but I'm sure it wasn't cheap.

For reference, the type of superglue can make a big difference, as well as the relative humidity, the use of glass beads, cleaning the fretwire, etc per the parker factory video.  That said there are some great epoxies available today too, but to others looking for an adhesive, your average hardware store variety of superglue or epoxy probably isn't a great choice.  I think there was also a pdf document somewhere about repairing parker frets that listed all the materials, including specific glues, cleaners, etc.

Brand new member here. I have taken the liberty of adding an ebay link for the hex tremolo arm that I recently found. I hope that's OK. If not please feel free to delete it.
I believe the seller also does other variations so it might be worthwhile asking if you're after something special.

GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: Which model do I choose?

Everything mossman just said.
No, really, everything. I was just typing up some stuff here and read his post and just deleted mine. That’s pretty much the whole scoop there.

What I will add is that I have t played any of the radial neck joint niteflies.
I have played the pdf (China & Indonesia) and df (usa) dragonflies— those are the 22 fret ones— and they are all great guitars. But each one needed a lot of “finish” work and adjustment to get into maximum playability. The best ebony neck was on a PDF from Indonesia and all I had to do was a little fretwork to get it right. I’m in the desert, so its truss rod gets a workout, too, and the maple necks can take it and are slim. I loved the rosewood fretboard on one of the USA made ones, too.

The chunkier neck of the old nitefly with the jumbo frets is something that took som getting used to for me. But those guitars seem to go cheaply now so try and pick up one some day. They really can do anything and though heavy, are a joy to play.

I’m curious about what happened in between the radial neck joint nitefly and the old nitefly, though. Was there ever a radial neck joint nitefly with a carbon-wrapped fretboard? I know that eventually there was a df1024 which had one, but was there anything in between, or was this it:

The df series which have the piezo and the ebony fretboard are by far the easiest guitars to play at the price point they seemed to go for, but it’s a messy used market right now and I haven’t seen any around.

One last thing, though, and I e said this about 1000 times, if you are good g to get a fly, choose the color you want, because you’ll be pretty happy and now want to get rid of it.

OH... yes, offcourse, my bad.

I could've done it way cheaper, refretted myself, but I needed a luthier for fret radius allignment.

I am just back from band practice, very nice neck and 2nd position tones, cuts through it all (F amp)

Refretted, nut slotted etc. All in all it cost 180 euros, approx 150 US dollars.

The guitar plays like a dream, I got it for 200e, so all in all it cost me 380 euros, 350 US.

Your currency conversion was backwards:

180 euros = $225
200 euros = $250
380 euros = $475

Still a very good price, of course.
