Have you played a Steinberger GL to compare the Parker to?

Have you seen that as long as you have no major dings or damage to the guitar Parker will refinish it in any custom color you want for about 300 bucks? An LNG Fly might be cool with some pink bobbin toppers!
I don't know how much my g/f paid for it...i'm sure not as much as she did for the JC. I could probaly be sneaky and find out, but i don't want to. It's in VG condition...probably 8.5/10 - The damage is inconspicuous to the audience's eye though.

I didn't know about the pait though...that's pretty cool.

I'm trying to deal with the upper-horn problem that people complain about. I think that most people don't hold the guitar quite right...people tend to hold it on their right knee when playing sitting down and then they don't hold the guitar directly in front of them when standing for that same reason.

I'm starting to get a belly, so I'll be lookin like Jerry Garcia while playing in no time.

PS: the singer in my band has a deluxe in black. I'll see if he's interested in selling it. i know he never ever plays it.

Re: Parker Fly Forum?

I used to own a Parker Fly Deluxe in Antique Gold. Loved the neck, arguably the best in the business with those stainless frets. Didn't much care for the finish on the back of it. But what really got me was the point on the back of the upper horn, it hit me square in my sternum and really became uncomfortable. Sure it was light as heck and felt good in my hands, but the pain from playing for any length of time over 20 minutes became really distracting. Granted, I wear my guitar way too high to be considered cool, but I was unwilling to compromize. But the neck....ohhh the neck.

Yeah...that'd be nice...if anybody actually bothered to USE the 'search' function
PS: What pickups should i put in my 550? I play metal.

A stickied Parker thread would be cool, but my feeling is that folks would wander over to the Parker forums eventually for strictly Parker info. Might be handy for Parker-Ibanez specific discussions though, like neck comparisions and differences between the Parker piezos and the Double Edge, and such.

And definitely you want to put TV Jones FilterTrons in that 550. None more Metal! ;-)

Re: Parker Fly Forum?

Nite-Flys take regular sized pups as opposed to the Flys, which need the custom size.
