FLY GUITARS / Re: Gold switches as seen on Parker Fly Spring Edition
« Last post by ZemanG2 on September 22, 2018, 07:09:16 AM »
I am looking for the same thing too! Finding one in gold is pretty much impossible. In fact finding a on-off-on with a fat bat, or a black cap has been difficult in itself. I decided to take out my gold bridge, gold pole slugs in pick ups, and just go back to silver and black.
NITEFLY GUITARS / Re: Case for Nitefly
« Last post by ZemanG2 on September 22, 2018, 07:03:42 AM »
It is actually not to hard to customize your own case. I found a new Parker case with the inside for the dragonfly or what ever shape. I unscrewed it, pulled the fabric off the styrofoam, took the pressed cardboard out replaced it with some thin plywood. Got new foam, cut out a shape, reglued etc...  you get the point.
The difference between a M and  Mojo are the pickups and a chunkier neck, the Nitefly M, which it kinda looks like you have, has DiMarzio pick ups and chunkier neck. If you wish you restore the finish I believe, big believe, tung oil will do. The original finish is a rubbed on stain with a wax finish.

I've always wanted to try a M, my mojo Nitefly is just crazy bright, and I've never really clicked with it. I don't know of anything wrong with the model. Niteflys in general have a thicker neck...sorry had:(

To be honest, the M and the Mojo are easy to get mixed up. Don't be too hard on him. I even thought the Mojo and M in the natural finish were the same kind of finish. It is all a learning curve.

ANNOUNCEMENTS AND NEWS / Re: Bad news for 2018?

 sad to hear the news :'(
Hi all, I lowered my price from $4500 to $3975. I feel this is very reasonable for what $ I put into it to get it where it is and what it offers. Also, it really is in perfect condition. I am open to feedback from the Parker experts in this forum on anything. So please PM me your thoughts. Thank you!

Showing off would be machining a bridge to mod a fly to have 12 strings.  ;) 
Yeah...whatever happened to that guy?..

If “that guy” is me, my 12-string project is still moving forward; Billy and I had many discussions off-line about this (Billy is an unstoppable Fly-modding machine!)  :) Major update to follow in a few weeks  :) but here’s a teaser photo of the modeled Fly headstock and tuner-mock-up trial number one gazillion:

Sorry to hijack the thread  :D
