I've been playing a red Parker Fly Deluxe for a couple of years. I really like the way it feels. The neck is flat and very thin. It has a stereo out which splits the signal. One output is the conventional magnetic pick up selection the other output is the piezo pick up in the bridge which gives a pretty convincing acoustic sound. The combination of the two is fantastic.more
Ken Parker is a visionar. He devised a tool for guitarists, using an exoskeleton (of carbon fiber and glass fiber), which allows you to go (musically) anywhere you want. The closest to perfection, ever.
The Parker Fly Deluxe (the white one in the picture) is an extension of my musical soul. I have never known a guitar like I know this one. The neck practically plays itself. The weight is around 3 1/2 pounds. It has a fishman acoustic pickup as well as 2 dimarizo's. That being said, the sound of the dimarzios is pretty thin, think late 80s Rush. The Fly Mojo models have Seymors that are way thicker in tone. The other guitars in the picture (left to right) the Parker Bronze Fly, a solid body guitar with only the fishman pickup. The red guitar is the prototype for a flamed to Fly Supreme. The black one is a 10th anniversary edition. The green one is the prototype for the quilted top Fly Mojo. Then there's my white one.
