Welcome- and agree with patzag's comments.  Would like to add that a lifting fingerboard can do this to your fretting too.  Check for paint cracks along the top edges just below the frets. 

Keep your parker out of extreme heat and also don't use any oils or commercial cleaners on your fretboard, doing so can weaken the adhesives.

Post pics if you're in doubt and want second opinions.

Yeah, this is reworked to use a recessed tune o matic bridge.  I filled the stock cavities with cnc'd mahogany, sanded flush. 

I sprayed the white last year, my kids bumped it while it was drying and I resprayed.  It had a lot of paint on it by that time, and I didn't like the paint I used the second time.  (That paint is probably great for graffitti, not so good for sanding smooth.  It was an "artist's acrylic-nitro-cellulous" blend that wasn't cheap.  Sprayed like crap though.) 

So, I took it all back off, primed, and resprayed with white lacquer. Definitely glad I took the time to do it.

It's really close, and very exciting..!

I don't want to jinx it until I can clear coat it, but here is a very small picture as a very big tease.  ;)



Fingers crossed for acceptable weather this weekend...

I remember seeing that one go up on eBay! It was missing some frets, if I recall.

I don’t think any Fly Classic models came in black from the factory; Classics mostly used semi-transparent  colors on those to showcase the mahogany wood grain. A black Fly Classic would have had to have been a custom order.  If you’re looking to purchase one now, and it must be black and must be a classic, it might be a better goal to buy a classic and then try to arrange a refinish in black.

Good luck!

Hello to all,

This is a long shot, but I'm currently looking to acquire an early year (preferably an '05) black refined Classic (BMH). I'll try to make this a brief back story. From a young age I grew up listening to the band Nine Inch Nails. Trent Reznor would play Flys on tour and in the studio. After watching him play them on tour, I knew that a Fly was my dream guitar. In 2009, Trent auctioned off a black Fly that was played on a few tours and on the Beside You In Time DVD. I ended up getting outbid and was pretty upset that I had probably lost any chance of getting my dream guitar. Fast forward 9 years (and 4 more Flys), one with "Eraser/Only" on the headstock went up for sale in March, the guitar I missed out on. So after 9 years of waiting, I can finally say that I own my absolute, be-all and end-all dream guitar. To make it even better, I lost to and purchased it from Wes Borland, one of my guitar idols. It's a 2005 BMH Classic in black and I would love to get one just like it. I do not want to play this one out much in fear of losing or damaging it. Plus, for some reason it has the thinnest neck of any of the Flys I've played or owned (maybe a custom order for the 2005 tour). So if anyone has one they would part with, please let me know. If you made it this far, thank you for time.
