PARKER CLASSIFIEDS / Re: WTB Parker Nylon Fly
« Last post by BB12 on February 24, 2018, 05:47:54 PM »
Chris,
Typical of me impulsive - just see what you expect, without looking at the detail:

I was so surprised to see Kiki live doing the 1st set and then Carmelo picked up a Parker for the 2nd number.
Well I was just in-thrall as you might say...

Here's a clip to view:

and perhaps you'll see why I'm a fan.

Then see this:

Only just found this one, seems Carmelo always uses the Parker for 'Amoureuse'

Great sound from a really talented pair.

Andre, that was the Bronze/Concert Fly that Carmelo Luggeri was playing.

There are a few more of those around. It uses the same bridge as the other hardtail Flys.
Good sound in that studio, though: not quite the resonance of the real acoustic played in the first song, but a different flavour for the capo tuning and more upbeat style of the second.

Really, I only included that video for the part about the screws, so that’s the ticket. You may have to go get another spring. Or replace the claw with one that has 4 spots for screws. Easier I would think I’d take it to a decent guitar shop. There is always a decent luthier in every town since it pays better (and more often) than guitar slinging.

The first time I ever saw a Parker guitar (at all!) was Reeves Gabrels playing with David Bowie on SNL in 1997. I was 13 and I was awestruck!

I don’t remember seeing one on T.V. since.

Anyway, good luck with the Nylon Fly search!

There were quite a few shows where Vernon Reid played his Parker on TV, but I don't think anyone noticed.

I recorded that, and shall be watching with extra interest later, then! Whistle Test was before my time, but I’ve seen clips before, and have heard so much about it through listening to Bob Harris.

To be honest, I can’t remember when I last saw anyone playing any Fly variant on TV!?

Hello Chris,

Having just returned to the Forum after many years of absence, I was not aware of your interest in the same.
Should have done a search on the subject before posting.

I've just watched (30 mins ago) a celebration of The Old Grey Whistle Test TV program - 40 years on; (That dates me).

Kiki Dee was performing with Carmelo Luggeri playing a Spanish Fly. First time I've seen one in a Pro setting.
Sounded great. I'll try to post a screen shot if I can figure out how to do it!

P SERIES GUITARS / P44 Pro wiring or schematics? Where do I find them?
« Last post by marcoharder on February 22, 2018, 04:16:08 AM »
Hi guys! Just got a used P44 Pro (Korea, 3 Knobs, 2 switches) and the piezo preamp and coil tap have been taken out. Is there any place where I can get the stock P44 Pro schematic so I can bring it back to stock? Thank you

Wow! Thanks for the find.  I will be contacting the seller to understand exactly what hacking he did to the electronics. Note the gaping hole where the volume knob should be ....

Much appreciated!

What Jb said about spring tension. Also double check the nut, since you say it returns sharp, that usually means it’s binding somewhere.

Failing all that, then it is likely that your trem bearings are funky. Fairly easy and not too much money.

but I would really check the nut, even one string can cause it to come back sharp.
