That may be, but the serial number confirms a lot of information to others who know and use Parker guitars. I really have a hard time believing the "scams" claim and would not bid without serial number info. And, believe me, I have the money to bid.

NITEFLY GUITARS / Good solution for missing NiteFly "Bridge Balls"
« Last post by TheGrail on Today at 04:44:47 PM »
Gents,
A friend has a nitefly and several of the little balls that are used on the bridge were missing. This seems to be a common problem, and I know Parker changed the way they made that bridge pretty quickly. If you have one, that fact doesn't help much. He was looking at hundreds of dollars for replacement graphtech saddles and preamp and then I happened to find this on the great "Dave's World of Fun Stuff" video channel.

Hope this helps everyone who has these wacky bridges avoid replacing them.
Cheers!

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I'm planning on selling my 1999 artist soon, so if you are looking for a different color than natural, that might be an option for you.
I always say "get the color you want", but that's getting tougher now. I still think there must be a TON of great fly guitars sitting in piles not being used, but who knows.

Anyway, I'm going to sell 3 high-end ones before november, Each is a $2500 guitar, and I planned to offer them up here for that minus the eBay fees. I have hard and soft cases for both. I just don't play them anymore and feel like they shouldn't be modded because I bought them for the wood they used, and to play the magnetic pickups, and the ones I play now are all modified heavily and used with modeling software.

The artist looks like this:



Drop me a line if you are interested, and yes, the sunburst is really that color!

Thanks for looking!

Finally got to do some more work on this mojo surgery project:

Sanding/fill before priming:





I smoothed out the sharp rear corner of the horn a little bit. 

First coat of primer:





I'm not being as fussy about this as I'd normally be.  I intend it to be a player, and also my time is pretty tight at the moment.

Next steps, sanding and any minor fill work.  Then color coat for paint, and clear coat.  Then final sanding and buffing.  Then reassembly.

Just saw that I need to get my photobucket links fixed from the first post... nuts.

looks nice!  Maybe a little overpriced given some of the sperzels don't lock. 

I'd offer something a bit lower and see if they accept.  You can replace the sperzels for not too much $$, or perhaps even send them back to sperzel for repair.
