Jimmy Page is my second favorite classic rock guitarist, second behind Jeff Beck.

NITEFLY GUITARS / Nitefly Action
« Last post by Presence76 on March 21, 2019, 01:48:11 PM »
Hello all, recently joined the forum.
I used to have a 2000 Parker Fly Classic (I gave it to the ex a long time ago - don't ask).
I loved the playability/neck, but wasn't crazy about the thin tone.

I recently scored a Nitefly M, the neck isn't quite as nice, but still fast and I'm enjoying the tone more than the Classic.
I have some experience setting up trems (Gotoh 510 and Ibanez Edge), however I've run into an issue with the Fly bridge.
I've searched the internet, checked this forum, checked the manual but I'm unable to get past this issue.

I can't give a measurement, but I'm sure I can go lower, however I am unable to turn the screw to adjust the action on the bass side of the trem clockwise.
I can raise it, but cannot lower it.
I was able to lower it until the point it is stuck at now.

Should I adjust the springs in the cavity?

What am I missing?

I appreciate any and all advise.

TECH TALK / Re: Piezo low volume on two strings
« Last post by JJMT on March 21, 2019, 10:38:24 AM »
Hi! There are people here that will help you sort out any possible issue with the functioning of the bridge/piezo. But I thought I would chime in and verify that that you've checked the easy stuff? Since all the strings are sounding through the piezo, have you checked for mechanical things that might be deadening those two strings? Maybe there is string silk that has gotten between the string and the saddle, which would potentially muffle the sound. Or maybe the saddles themselves are loose (loose tuning screw), which would such up some energy by sliding around. Or maybe the strings themselves have flattened out in come way causing irregular contact with the saddles? You should be able to tap on each of the saddles and see if they work.

If that's not it, then there is this popped up with a quick search:

FLY GUITARS / Re: One Original Saddle Needed
« Last post by Paul Marossy on March 21, 2019, 10:36:36 AM »
Getting ready to travel, so I am slow at posting, but I saw this today:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/PARKER-Guitar-USA-FLY-Series-BRIDGE-2-SADDLES-Older-Style/153420641899

Maybe a quick fix, but they look black, not silver.

Total gamble... seems like they don't know if they even work. Well, at least the one that looks like it could be functional. The other one is definitely useless for anything.

I might part with mine. I'm about to hit the road for almost 2 weeks, so if you get back to me after that, I might be broke enough to be convinced.
Certainly. I will do my best to remember to reach out. Safe travels.

Butterscotch would be my first preference. All shall be considered. I reside in NorCal (USA). Thanks in advance!

Mmm, well it’s a 2015 model so the saddles are “new”. I can see 14 wires coming from the back of  the bridge to a small device where they convert into just two. Is that the summing bar? It is free floating around in the cavity I.e. nowhere near the bridge. The two wires then run to the preamp. I can’t see anywhere that has soldering.

ON MUSICIANSHIP AND THE ART OF PLAYING / Re: David Torn
« Last post by syncopa on March 19, 2019, 04:01:35 PM »
I checked out a video online and the video was even more psychotic than the music! Lol!

I love Jazz but this was a little far out for me.  I also checked out a live performance - just in case - just as weird.  It seemed to me that the communication went through a deranged mind.

Probably in the year 2750 that will be recognized as the birth of cool, but I'm not there yet!

Listen to some of his solo stuff. The looping and atmospherics he pulls off are amazing! He lives here in Woodstock so he pops up locally all the time. Watching him "dance" amongst the electronics is a show in itself!
