Re: Interesting Craigslist post for ‘95 Fly

And that's another Classic without "Classic" on the headstock.

Re: Tremolo Springs

Hi, Finally, I scored a #9 spring on Craigslist the other day. I installed it on my Parker Fly right away. Now the spring falls or rattles only if it's in the groove closest to the back of the guitar. I'm fine with that, but the tremolo bar feels a little stiff. I borrowed a #12 spring from a friend...

Re: Tremolo Springs

Thanks for the info. Sadly, springs are valued for their scarcity.

Re: Tremolo Springs

Do you know the springs' specifications? I read they have the same thickness but different width. How do you know what type of spring is without the gauge number written on it?
Thanks.

Re: Tremolo Springs

Bend-down works perfectly, the problem is with the floating position bend-up. Thanks for the link, that guide was very informative but it didn't work. Do you think there is a problem with the tremolo system or just the spring?

Re: Tremolo Springs

i’ll try it @Wheresthedug, because i need a spring badly. i can’t use the tremolo on the floating position. Every time I pull up the bar, the spring rattles and falls.
Thanks.

Re: Tremolo Springs

I haven't contacted them directly but I check Ebay and Reverb everyday. There is a guy on Ebay, guitarstable, that says he purchased the entire remaining inventory from USM when they went out of business and only have a few #11 and #12 left.

Re: Tremolo Springs

That's what I thought @vjmanzo Flys are fine-tune machines. I don't want to modify the nut in order to use 11s or 12s strings. So I'll keep the tremolo locked or bend-down only while waiting for your solution.
Keep up the good work and thanks,
R.

Re: Model name stamped on headstock

Hi vjmanzo , Yes, I read once on the old forum about Supremes labeled Guitars on the headstock but never about Classics. Mine is 1997 and yours is 2003, I wonder why did this happen and how many of these guitars are around? I'm out the town now but I'll post some pix as soon as possible. Thanks, R.

Tremolo Springs

Hi,
It's very hard to find #9 and #10 springs for the tremolo system on the Parker Fly. You can still get #11 and #12 springs on Ebay or Reverb. Does anyone have any experience with string and spring gauges higher than 10.
Thanks,
R.

Model name stamped on headstock

Hi Guys,
First, I'd like to thank you for creating this forum, every Parker Fan will appreciate your effort.
I have a Fly Classic 97 according to the serial number; but It has the word "Guitars" on the headstock instead of the word "Classic". Have you seen anything like that?
Thanks,
R.
