I forgot to say some things.
First of all, the JEM 7v is no problem to get in Norway. I get a new for $1900.
In norway it's only been sold 5-10 new Parker Fly guitars... therefore I'm very interested in the Parker. I can always buy a new 7v. (then I got the money.....)
And doing personal mod to the 7v, NO! I like it orginal... don't u?
But anything is that is parker is directmonted pikcups and neck-tru... amazing sustein... uuuhh... I forgot how it's written ;D but the point is that you get both Gibson sust because of neck-tru, and additional you get the Petrucci sust... you get both
amazing sound, if you ask me...
I visited the dimarzio homepage... the 2 pickups on parker is:
brigde - it is based on the The Tone Zone... very good pickup
neck - air norton... PETRUCCI!!! tihi... you know how good it is...
but to all of you how haven't jet tested the Parker - get your ass up and try one... I called the guy selling it just for fun... it has always been Ibanez... after 10 min of playing on the Parker, I looked up... my eyes were difused. I didn't have words. Then I looked at my JEM, the floral neck, damn was the first though... After 30 min testing the Parker... now been all from Bluesy stuff to DT/Vai... then I took the piezo on... started playing all tunes... and I has totaly blown away! So it took 30 min of played, then for the first time I considered to sell the JEM. And in 48 hours I must have made up my mind...
Anyone of you who can get me a Parker Fly Classic cheaper? Remember shipping to norway
