This is an original 1995 “1st Generation” USA-made model. It actually has a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers from the Parker Fly Mojo model: the Jazz(neck) and JB(bridge) were installed by Parker USA themselves. It also has the standard 1995 piezo under-saddle acoustic pickup and pre-Washburn era concentric tone control that was discontinued in later generations.
The guitar is light(about 2kg), exceptionally stable and versatile: Sperzel locking tuners, original (hexagonal cross section) tremelo and large thumbwheel ensure tuning stability; the player has the choice to engage humbuckers and/or the piezo pickup, either by blending via the onboard controls or running in stereo. Jazz, acoustic, funk, rock, fusion or insane shredding... this guitar has such a wide tonal palette.
This Fly is in excellent order throughout, with its finish and electrics in very good condition indeed . It comes complete with original manual, stereo “Y” lead and hex tremelo arm. I have additionally included as part of the sale, some “extras” that will make life easier for its new owner: an extra 9-gauge tremelo spring, an Allen key for bridge adjustment, a replacement pre-slotted Parker nut and the correct Torx wrench for neck adjustment.... Also included is the Gator hard case in which it came to me.
I have never gigged with this lovely instrument: home noodling only. I’ll surely be terribly bereaved to sell it, but yet again I’ve so rarely played it and my other guitars already are elbowing me for space. It needs a loving home with someone who can give it the appreciation it deserves.
Given both its beauteous nature, attractive price and extra inclusions as above, I’d really prefer “buyer collects”, though of course freight is do-able, but at the buyer’s cost.
I'm sorry, but no part-ex offers please. This stunner has barely a mark on it, no buckle rash or dings and I'm well aware this is a stonkingly good price.
For those interested, I can tell you the exact date of manufacture...thus you'll be able to work out the serial number!
I've updated these details prior to sale: it is now for sale (Spring 2013)at £1325...so if you're interested please get in touch, though I sincerely regret I will not ship internationally. Also, I am not part-exing...that is, unless you happen to have a pre-2008 Les Paul Custom!
