I'd like to see photos of the guitar.  I'm sure that others here would too.

Yes, That's all we made at first.  This one is '92 or '93, don't remember exactly.  Everything else we made then was white.

Hi Marvin,
that sounds pretty cool.  I assume it is a hard tail?

I'm a newbie here, but I had trouble with my "new" DF 724 Piezos that I posted in the "new owner" thread under the general discussion section above. JamieCann (sp?) said that the 3 way switches used on Parkers were quite troublesome, and encouraged me to take a close look at the switch, disassemble it, bend some tabs within, and see if that helped. See the discussion on that thread as I thought the switch was fine, but taking it apart yielded some interesting problems. These switches have caused problems on many of my guitars and are the first thing I examine (or replace) when a pickup stops working! Jamie's advice was right on!

PARKER CLASSIFIEDS / Pre-serial# Fly F.S.
« Last post by marvin jensen on June 20, 2018, 01:11:21 PM »
For sale, a pre-serial number Parker Fly.  Mahogany body, redwood neck,  Gen 1 pickups, all original. This is one that we made early on.  The only difference between this and a production guitar is that the fretboard was glued on using a strip of pre-preg.  It was determined that there was not enough significant difference in the sound to justify the added time/cost.  This one was made when we were still using the dipped 100% polymer primer and House of Kolor paint. (pre PPG)  It was painted as a test for one made for Eddie Van Halen.  black first, then thinned down pearl, then candy red, House of Kolor UFC-1 clear.  It is a dark maroon/to black in off light, flashes of kandy red in direct light.  Only two were made with this custom color, this one and Eddie's.  Excellent condition (one small chip on the back)(can't be repaired without re-painting the entire guitar).  Will be shipped in original gig bag in original Parker shipping box with letter of authenticity.  $5000.00 firm.  Pics on request.  eight two eight. four six seven zero one six seven

GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: New Parker Owner

Y'all have probably noticed that I am an information "sponge" when I acquire a new guitar that is something that I know nothing about. That has been the case with my "new" Parker, and I must say that those of you that have responded to my questions and comments have been extremely helpful! Not only have I learned what a great guitar it really is, but also a lot about its history, different problems, how to fix little problems, how people use their Parkers, a lot about the Parker company, and on and on. Great forum, and I feel like I am now totally familiar with my Parker and will know where to go if I can think of other questions to ask (lol). Thanks!!

If you've confirmed that you can't get sound from the piezos in any of the ways described in the document, you can hope it's just a loose wire, a bad switch, a bad pot, or a bad jack. If it's not one of those things, I suppose it could be a problem with the circuit board. Someone will have to open up the guitar to look around.

There is no Parker factory or repair center to send it to, but any competent local guitar technician should be able to at least narrow down the problem. Compatible replacements for most of the parts other than the circuit board are readily available. Even the board could be completely swapped out with a different one, but I assume it would have different control characteristics.
