I took received this custom shop maxxfly 7 string in January 2014 from the dealer I ordered from.

The guitar resonates well, sounds great, and is ultra lightweight - especially for a 7 string!

It's pretty much mint other than some very very mild swirl scratches and some scratches on the bridge.

I am a huge Parker fanboy and thought I would end up keeping this around as one of my workhorses but I find the ergonomics of my Teuffel Tesla 7 suit me better. This is still a really absurdly comfortable guitar though, as you can tell by the body contours.

Specs are:

Mahogany body and neck with a carbon fiber exoskeleton:
I've owned a few Parkers and find that the exoskeleton adds brightness. This guitar sounds a lot like my maple top, mahogany body and maple neck'd guitars. It has a bit more snap than they did but sounds darker and more gutteral.

Carbon glass fretboard:
Very smooth, doesn't require any oiling, or maintenance. Parker says that you get a very even response across the whole fretboard because of the carbon, and I would be inclined to agree.

Stainless frets:
Stainless steel frets = great for bends! They feel very smooth and slick.

Other specs:
25.5" scale length
Emerald Green finish (kind of tealish or super green depending on lighting)
Roundish neck on the thinner side of things
Graphtech piezo system
Volume knob, piezo volume, 3 way mag, tone knob, push/pull for split coil.

The guitar comes with the original hardshell Parker case.

If you're paying with PayPal, I can only accept payment if you are PayPal verified. This guitar would run you about $4800 new in USD. I am only asking $3800 and the guitar is about 3 months old.

Feel free to make offers. I would love an AFXII + cash. Not really looking for guitars at the moment as I'm pretty satisfied with my Teuffel Tesla.
