ANNOUNCEMENTS AND NEWS / Re: Bad news for 2018?
« Last post by sybersitizen on Today at 07:03:03 PM »
I was also going to tell the new guy how my '01 Deluxe (bought used on eBay in 2009) has held up perfectly with not a single failure of anything. But I'm an at-home player and I don't subject any of my gear to the rigors of 'real life out there'.

I do know that Dave Martone, who is at the extreme opposite end of the spectrum, did actually wear out his first Fly after several years, then bought another one.

I don't know what sort of treatment ParkerSrg expects to give his stuff.

ANNOUNCEMENTS AND NEWS / Re: Bad news for 2018?

Anyone wanna take bets on when the Parker website is going to change 2018 to 2019?  I'm gonna go ahead and bet that it will take them until mid January for someone to realize "Oh crap we need to change it AGAIN"

Seriously though, what happened since "We'll be back in 2016" until now?
The sale of the company fell through, looks like?

And just commenting on above, the startup costs would absolutely be enormous.
IIRC they sold all of their equipment, all the ovens and the epoxy curing stuff...
They even sold off all of the overstock parts, like bridges, etc.
Probably sold everything that wasn't nailed down.

I kinda want to buy a used one, it's very tempting, but the realist in me tells me it's not a good idea to buy a guitar that has many known issues in terms of things not working / falling apart after years and years of playing it, especially at a time when it's getting harder and harder to get official parts for it.

My Parkers are from 1994 and 1996.  They are as beautiful as on the day they were made.  A little scuffing on the aluminum bridge is the most wear you'll see.  The frets are as shiny as the day they came out of the factory.  And if the ribbon on one of them got cut by stupid (mine) handling, a few soldered wires was all it took to get the sound flowing again.

These guitars will outlast me.

If you find a good condition used PRE REFINED Parker, jump in.  They are the best guitars ever.  every day that goes by and every guitar I try tells this to me again and again.

Not to mention the actual intellectual...whatever it's called, the loss of the people who knew how it all worked.

Really, IF the Parker brand re-emerges, it will bear little relation to the original ideas/concepts/ethos.

It may as well be a new start-up guitar company.

So sure it'll be interesting to see what comes next, but you know...meh.

They've blown it.

Big time.

B.S.

EDIT: "intellectual capital" That's it!..ah coffee, where would we be without thou...

That's similar to the mods I do to my guitars. Its a great thing, costs a lot of time and money, but generally doesn't sell for the $ you put into it.
Yours IS gorgeous, you just need to fins the right buyer! Maybe if you added a video with some of the stuff it can do?

Dunno. Some parkers sell for asking off the bat right now, but the bolt-ons don't seem to be.

Keep it listed and don't sell it for less than you need and I hope you are on your feet playing gigs again soon!

The pups were Duncan JB/Jazz, with two push pulls on the tone, straight forward wiring, outer slugs. You could always select inner and get that Parker Fly middle tone:)
