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.

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

Deluxe Has Dimarzio
Mojo has Duncans

Deluxe is Bass/Poplar
Mojo is Mahogany

Depending on year, Deluxe had Fishman, then later Ghost

 I think the thing that offends me is the amputated top horn.  It just makes me vom in my mouth a little whenever I look at it.

Wasn’t there a sighting of a similarly dehorned Fly on the forum, Like 2 - 3 yrs ago...?
Without all the headless fiddle faddle, just a clipped horn.

I have been looking for one for years and even asked Ken to build one and the custom shop was not even willing. One sold on reverb last week for 3995 but the seller was a collector that got it from someone else listed as mint but stressed it was a "used" guitar so I decided to pass because he could not tell me if there were problems and though I have 4k to buy it, it would have to be in fact, mint.
