Parker Nightfly M Anyone have opinions?

I have decided to get a new electric with a piezo trem. I was sure it was to be a RG2020, but then I remembered Parker. After getting my Yamaha Ty Tabor, I realized there are guitars worth buying that are not made by Ibanez (someone should have told me sooner.) I had fallen in love with the Parker Fly's Stainless Steel Frets and their acoustic sound, but alas, they are expensive. The Nighfly M seems to be a newer model. Still USA made and has the same frets and trem, but is a bolt-on and is made of solid wood instead of wood/fiber. I can't find one anywhere to try out, and would be ordering through mail if I got it. Has anyone played one of these to comment on it? I especially would like to know how it compares to the original Fly's. I got nothing of use from the H-C reviews.
Thanks in Advance,

If i didn't already have a Fly Classic, i'd buy one of the new NiteFly M models without hesitation.

I've owned my NiteFly for a while and I still love the thing... Mine's an NFV3, with three dimarzio singles, and it's the best sounding and playing "Strat" I've ever had... I had a Fly Classic for a few months until about January of this year, but I got rid of it because I just didn't get along with it's extreme light weight (and tone, imho), but I've no intentions of ever abandoning my NiteFly - for me, the NiteFly is where Ken Parker got it absolutely RIGHT ...

The many horror stories of the stainless steel frets coming off has kept me from getting one, although the Nitefly M looks cool.
