GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: New Parker Owner
« Last post by axejock on July 17, 2018, 05:54:29 PM »
As I get more comfortable with my DF724, I still marvel at it, particularly its light weight and its tonal capabilities. For some reason, I find myself being very "careful" with it, probably because it is so light and electronically unique. I guess it's because all of my other guitars feel like lead weights compared to this one (Gibsons, Fenders, PRS, even a Gretsch) that I think of it as being  too delicate to be handled without extreme care. I guess that means I really like it and that keeping it like new will always be a priority.
 Who'd of thunk it?

FLY GUITARS / Re: Need help in germany
« Last post by sybersitizen on July 16, 2018, 09:15:48 AM »
Can I us a "normal" Stereo cable with a stereo plug on one side and two mono plugs on the other side?

Yes.

And where can I get alternate tremolo springs for lighter strings?

Probably only second-hand from sources like eBay. You're not likely to find new ones anymore.

FLY GUITARS / Need help in germany
« Last post by GSTLP on July 16, 2018, 08:41:03 AM »
Hello,
I want to buy a used Parker Fly, but the original Y-Cable is missing. Can I us a "normal" Stereo cable with a stereo plug on one side and two mono plugs on the other side?
And where can I get alternate tremolo springs for lighter strings?
The german distributor "Thomann" doesn't have such springs.
Best regards from Germany

Ah, the scratches arent too bad. I also think this can be buffed out. The chips are no issue, I would think.

I am still interested, so if you decide to sell it, please pm or email me.

Kind regards,
Andreas

Okay... I just opened the case, probably for the first time in over a year, I can't remember.
In best Parker tradition the guitar was almost perfectly in tune even though the strings are probably from 2015. 8)

I was unable to find a scratch next to the bridge like I mentioned in my initial post. Must have buffed itself out with regular cleaning/polishing.
These are the blemishes in close ups as requested.


The pick marks, especially the bigger/wider one in the middle reminded me of experimenting with a large carbon fiber pick I thought would go well with a carbon fiber reinforced guitar. Turned out it was harder than the finish but also turned to black unhealthy dust on my fingers and between the pickups, so I got rid of it soon. The picture is taken from the angle and with lights the pick marks are most noticeable. From a regular distance you have to know they are there to notice them. I would guess most of them could be buffed out.


The chipped paint spots on the headstock were smaller than I remembered. The other guy and his Telecaster took most of the damage. :P


The spots on the front are only visible up close and personal from an angle. On a stage under lights it looks like a reflection if it's noticeable at all.

FLY GUITARS / Gold switches as seen on Parker Fly Spring Edition
« Last post by joedreamliner787 on July 15, 2018, 06:03:27 AM »
Hi guys,
     I am hoping someone can help me out. I have a pearl white fly and sourcing a on-on-on in gold color was easy but there are two switches I cannot find which are on-off-on and also a momentary (on)-off-(on) switch. I don't like the tiny switches that come with the graphtech ghost kit and noticed midi flys loaded with a ghost system do have a regular sized switches. There is a koa midifly on cmc guitars that has gold switches but I am having a heck of time trying to find them. Even if I can get them in silver I can bring them to a jeweler and have them plated?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone,
      After having acquired a 98 teal classic and an 08 pearl white I got the Parker itch. I am looking for a spanish/nylon fly and I will pay 4k for one in great condition. I keep my guitars in pristine condition and put them to use at home for recording and I have been looking for a nylon fly for a long time. PM or email me at pomsceojosephm@gmail.com if you have one you want to sell!

Thank you!

Nef,
As you know, I also have a Tangerine Mojo. I can only offer my experience on having sold a cherry red mahogany Classic to a friend back in the late 90's.  I didn't have to sell it, the friend was in love with it and I didn't play it that much. So I sold it.

I've regretted it ever since.

PARKER CLASSIFIEDS / Looking for Nitefly next or neck repair
« Last post by Patzag on July 13, 2018, 09:31:10 AM »
I just sold a Southern Nitefly and something nasty happened in shipping. 

The fretboard sheared slightly from the main body of the neck.  Not sure if the board lifted significantly or not but theres a definite crack along the seam of the fretboard.
So I need to replace this neck pronto or get it professionally repaired.

I would appreciate any suggestions for master repairmen who could tackle such a job or if anyone has a dead Nitefly with a good neck or just a spare neck, I would appreciate an offer.

Thanks,
Patrick
