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...

Parker Fly w/Douglas fir body

Well—this was a new one: Cameron Willard’s Fly with a Douglas fir body! Of note: Cam worked with Ken in Wilmington from 1993 until the USM transition in 2004, helped Ken in 2004 during the formative years of Ken Parker Archtops , and is working alongside Ken fulltime at present at KPA. During his ti...

Re: “What’s This Worth?” Thread

Looks like the refined Butterscotch Deluxe eBay auction is going to end without a single bid. Yeah—noticed that, and noticed the red Deluxe. I don’t have much experience with refinishes, but someone could probably put that butterscotch finish on that red Deluxe for under a grand, right?! Is that wh...

Hopefully, you never had a meh experience with the search feature before, but, if you did, it should now be snappier and yield better results. I'll also draw attention to som...

Re: tightening the cable plug - how?

Hi igor —you’re wise for being careful as turning that jack in an attempt to tighten it can tear the flex PCB, and, in fact, this was/is a common point of failure, unfortunately. At the factory, they used a tool like this that Ken Parker made: EF287ED6-097F-499F-AE6E-0DF6852700DD.jpeg The concept is...
