Just so I’m clear: you’re saying that if I send you my Fly, you can mod it into a Fly Sitar? 😗

Truss Rod X-Rays

I found some old photos of X-Rays of a Fly from the old forum, and thought I’d share them in this related thread for posterity sake: A7BAA123-4711-47E4-B298-3C047448065B.jpeg 252AA00A-8FB0-4722-9713-E711CDE834E9.jpeg 486F6DE4-4F4C-4BA7-85B1-7F14527CA7E4.jpeg 8EE10937-CF40-4574-948A-E263E967FB22.jpeg...

Re: Nut replacement

Thanks, Billy 😊 Jjackson04 , Billy’s suggestion is for sure the easier approach, but yes, the NiteFlys used the same nut as the Flys from that era. Those nuts on eBay were USM factory leftovers made by Graphtech from when Parker Guitars closed in 2015, and I’ve used them many times—they would be qui...

Re: Graphtech replacement saddles 2005 FLY

Hi Thomerz and welcome! The saddles themselves are similarly-sized to the existing saddles, and many users here have had great success with them as replacements. The piezo elements are affixed to the saddles just like the OEM saddles you have, however you may want to replace the Fishman Powerchip wi...

That’s vintage “pre-refined” paint! 🤩

Re: Limited time only deal

Flying off the shelves! :shock: Some related discussion of this spilled over into the “ What’s this Worth? ” thread. Part of me hopes it sells for this price—one because it would make a great story for the seller—but also to confirm my suspicion that I’m asleep right now and that the last few years ...

Re: “What’s This Worth?” Thread

Is that really a strategy you’ve observed? I mean, I had the thought when I clicked the link, “This seller certainly got my attention!”, but I wondered how, if at all, that might convert into a sale. I would think that pricing that guitar too high might discourage people from even inquiring about a ...

Re: Serial Number Info for Parker Fly, NiteFly, Fly Bass, and Other Parker Guitars

Tricky one Richerich , but I’d be willing to bet that the first number is the month of September and the second number is the year (199)7. Of course, here’s what we had to work with officially: The NiteFly uses a different system using either a five or six digit serial number. The first one or two d...
