Re: Parker Fly Forum?
you have a Red parker right? I checked out the forum and saw it with yourBFP and a prestiege with a vine (?).
I got to say, being an AVID Ibanez lover for the past 6 years, Parkers have runied me! I got a nite-fly M and I love it so much I'm selling my 570 and 421 to get a neck through delux or classic.
When I picked my 570 up again it felt massive and really heavy and clunky. So, personally I dont think they feel anyrhing like Ibanez - but thats just me. I dont use the piezo really, because I like the pups in it so much and I cant really get a decent sound from it, is there some way you can make it louder by turning a nob inside the guitar?
As for pickups, I dont see the logic in paying a lot of money for a guitar and changing out the pups. However in the Flys you canget them 're-wound' to you specifications, apparently.
I have tone zone- Air Norton combo in my 421, and my fly has (apparently) got pups moddelled on there pups in it. The fly sounds SO much better it is unbeleviable.
Please note - any opinions expressed by thewriter are HEAVILY biased because he fell in love with parkers the first time he ever saw them (11 years old) and it took me 10 years to part with the cash, but man was it worth it! I WILL be getting more ofthese guitars.
