For what it’s worth I checked both of mine, the gunmetal gray ‘94 hardtail has white numbers that are very slightly staggered above and below center line while the gold ’97 has black numbers that align properly.
I take back my comment about the dull paint.
Look at the horn, it is shiny, probably just bad photography for the rest.
Is tangerine rare?
Hell-o it’s a Parker, nice color good condition if it all works it’ll give great service...now about that reserve price...

Thanks for the info on the serial character alignment. Good to know.

Am I crazy or did the user post better pictures to the ad since we talked about this yesterday? I looked at a bunch of Parker ads all around the net yesterday and could have sworn these pics today are much better.

Guitar appears to be in great condition and is a rare color. At least I think it was a rare color in the pre-refined ones. I could be wrong though that is just what I have observed) Also any experts here have info on the the color? It seems a little different from the Tangerine color I am used to on the new flys. Not as bright. More of a burnt orange than a bright tangerine. Could just be the pics but I am wondering if the older flys in orange were a different shade?


I would be interested if it wasn't quite such a high price. Not saying it isn't worth it to someone, it just isn't worth that much to me. :)

Too bad.  Beautiful guitar!
But to me it looks like a repaint job.
Now that you mention it the front does look a bit hazy or dull compared to the back.....hmmm.

Looking at the pic of the serial number two things jumped out at me...

- Weren't all the serial number letters white? These are black.
- The characters in the serial look misaligned. The second "2" looks to be high and the spacing of the last 4 digits are crammed together compared to the first 4 digits.

Not knocking the guitar, but it sure looks like a repaint to me.

I've always liked the no fret markers on the board look of Parkers.
I prefer to use the fret markers on the top of the neck since I never seem to be able to see the regular ones.
I bet those are stickers since machining CF is difficult at best.

Was this done in just one year/period?

No. It could only have been done as a special order. Normally you don't want anything breaking up the carbon/epoxy surface. Maybe it was an owner modification, or maybe they're just decals.

Every Fly that I`ve seen, does not have fretboard dot markers...
There is one on Ebay which does have dot markers.  Was this done in just one year/period?
