Parker fly, classic
1998 model Parker Fly Classic.
Extremely lightweight and in very good condition.
One crack in the finish at the bottom of the bridge that’s not structural.
This Parker fly has been rewired from the original mother board. (Which once they blow in these guitars - can’t be repaired) which I believe is the case with this guitar. But one hell of a rewiring job!
So we’ve lost the functionality of the piezo. The hardware is still there but the motherboard is not. I didn’t look into if a different Piezo would work.
But in-return you get an unreal amount of options!
It’s wired like a Les Paul with volume and tone for each pick up. Both have tuned treble bleeds so you can turn down without loosing high end.
Each pickup then has its own 3 way mini toggle that splits the humbuckers into
1 single coil
3 wired in series (witch sounds like position 2/4 on a strat)
Then - the bottom switch knocks the 2 pickups out of phase. Which gives you all the Brien May configurations and the Peter Green mod.
In studio this guitar sound like five different guitars.
Live you can set and forget - use it like a normal Les Paul.
It’s straight ahead rock tone sounds amazing. Like a vintage Sg on the bridge!
Thanks for looking.
