Notice For All Buyers: Thank you for your attention. In 2006 the company added a line of acoustic-electric and jazz guitars under the Parker brand name. It came in different six different colour schemes. It also gives the added benefit of allowing a smaller, more efficient body. Music eliminated the vibrato adjustment wheel on all models that they produced. Featuring ceramic magnets, the Gen 2 design had more mid range focus, and higher output than their predecessors, and are still used on many current fly models.
The ones made in Korea are good value. During the years Ken owned the company this guitar was called. I agree that a used Deluxe or Classic is a good choice. It included nine feedback suppressing slots routed into the bodies upper bout. Season Of Mist is driven foremost by their passion for good music and they have an impressive roster of bands.
In 2011, Exivious played their first major outdoor festival at Brutal Assault in Czech Republic. More details can be read in our custom shop section. In fact, it plays so nice that I have not even been able to consider a Strat guitar since I began playing the Parker. They came with both magnetic and piezo pickup and the player could blend the two sounds together. Kramer gave me a spectacular Stagemaster for Xmas one year. Classics are a little more rare. This Fly lacks the standard pickups, but it has a piezo installed underneath the bridge.
This guitar had a solid Sitka spruce top with single ply binding. It was in 2005 that a stable line-up came together, with Tymon Kruidenier, Robin Zielhorst, Michel Nienhuis and Stef Broks Textures. Also some of the new models appeared to be Parker guitars that had morphed with other popular guitar designs. After selling his stake in Parker Fly Guitars in 2003, Ken began experimenting with the archtop guitar neck attachment. Nylon Fly is a model from the Fly Classic series made by Parker Guitars. Also it 2006 Parker also came out with a unique acoustic bass guitar to match up with their Event Series guitars. They developed the line and changed up a few things.
This one comes with nylon-string construction and without standard electric guitar pickups. That is my explanation for why the Parker Fly has not taken over the guitar world — I rarely see them in a music shop. What happens when you cross a boat with a guitar? The Classic, which is less than half used is mahogany body, and I think the neck is maple. No comment on the lower end models. The bolt-on neck was also made of mahogany. So what does it all add up to in practice? It comes finished in Butterscotch Transparent with gloss finish and nickel-plated hardware. The pickups are instead mounted via two extended pole pieces that screw into bushings sunk into the pickup cavities of the guitar.
The pin bridge was uniquely designed of ebony wood. I just wish I could more easily try different flavors. The body on the P6E models were made with mahogany back and sides. I have been a large dealer for a lot of companies. But, that's been changing because I haven't been playing it as much lately.
Then they were replaced with the Mahogany P-44 or whatever it is. If you cant find the color of Parker Fly Mojo Midi you want here, you can send us pics or the color you want and then we can customize it for you. I have searches saved on fleaBay, etc. Parker took wood one step further: ignoring many conventional manufacturing techniques, Parker and fellow boffin Larry Fishman set out in the early 1990s to reinvent the guitar. Another development in 2006 was the introduction of a line of acoustic-electric guitars under the Parker brand. I would like to try another one, but I wondered if anyone had any recommendations?

In regard to the origin of the Parker Fly, Parker, in his own words states, We shared techniques and technologies, and tried to envision some new tools for guitar players. The electronics used in the instruments were very unique as well. Not my cup of tea but well made guitars for the price. The carbon fretboard is very hard and smooth to play, while the neck becomes extremely rigid, and can be made thinner for easier, faster playing. The Parker Fly brand was being manufactured until November of 2016 when the factory in Buffalo Grove, Illinois was shut down. The ebony fretboard had only dot inlays at the 12th fret. The chrome control plate featured a third knob for the piezo volume.
These basses were available in four or five string models. There are several layers of Parkers. Even the fretwire is different, using stainless steel instead of traditional nickel alloy frets. Master volume and master tone comprise the controls unit. Ken Parker and Larry Fisher set up their business and in both 4 and 5 string versions.
