Parker Auction

300004463577

Should I bid on this? I know almost nothing about parkers so I cant really tell if it's the real deal.

Re: Parker Auction

well she certainly looks like a Parker Nitefly M - the hardware on Parkers is mostly unique (designed and made by Parker), so it's highly unlikely that the guitar is a fake - why bother trying to fake up a low production run, niche market instrument - the guitar in the pictures seems to match very closely the Parker web page on the NiteFly M:

- ask the seller for some very specific photos of things and check the woodgrain compared to the shots he has up on the auction.

I recently bought a Fly Classic, and it is easily the best guitar I have ever owned!

Cheers, and good luck,

David McCarroll

carbon fiber is the shiznit when it comes to necks , they never warp and are extremly strong . the composit fretboards are extermly nice and the frets they use are well sized and you get the action super low without any problems .

parker makes some really nice guitars , they are just funky shaped and owned by US music corp .
