Yep, there are a few on there.  Not 100% sold on some of the pricing though.

PARKER CLASSIFIEDS / WTB: Parker Fly Bass - pre-Washburn era
« Last post by SynapticGroove on June 27, 2017, 10:01:38 AM »
Hola all,

I've been on the lookout for a Fly bass for a while now.  I'm not interested in any of the import models or the Washburn-era models; I am looking for the real deal, 4 or 5 string, natural/red is fine.

Thanks!

FLY GUITARS / Re: No piezo with stereo cable

There's no sound with only the piezo plugged in. I'll just have to use at least one pedal with the piezo. Not a big problem.

Just some interesting info to share. Jamm was going to sell the Parker brand name to someone I know. However they changed their minds and so it is still possible that Jamm may do something in the future. Also keep in mind that all the USA factory parts pieces machinery etc have been sold off.  So anything coming up would likely be import only

Thank you guys.
I already have a Bronze Fly.
It looks like there are none around. Does anybody know how many they made?

A delay, for whatever legitimate reason, could be excused - as long as real information of some kind is offered. The ch*ckensh*t part is the stupid dead silence from the company. If there's any kind of legitimate effort being made to revive the brand, the person in charge who authorized the change from '7' to '8' on the website home page - that's one ASCII character in 14 months! - could have also authorized a sentence or maybe two along the lines of 'Apologies to Parker enthusiasts. This has been more difficult than we anticipated.' But noooooo ...

Here is an interesting test. Plug only the Piezo into the Vox and let the magnetics unplugged. Can you hear the piezo through the vox?


If there is still nothing then it is a basic input impedance issue with the Vox amp and compatibility with the Powerchip.


If it does work then its related to the circuit on the dual inputs creating a lower impedance somehow when the two inputs are both connected.


In either case it is the input impedance issue that I mentioned originally and was confirmed later by Billy.


The reason it doesn't work when you route the piezo through the pedal with the effect turned off is likely due to the pedal off position being true bypass.  That is equivalent to plugging the piezo direct into the amp.

I'll take the optimistic side. I don't see any reason or upside for them to propagate the idea the Parker will be back if they already decided against it. If they truly have decided to move away from the brand why not just say so. I'm hoping that there is someone inside of US Music that truly is interested in bringing the brand back and they are just running into logistic / funding / whatever issues that are delaying what I hope to be a relaunch.
