Re: Tracking down a Belew

Bump. Someone with a Tangerine Belew 1.0 hit up the Facebook groups asking the model be identified and appraised - Which means one of the three people most likely to purchase it through Messenger can be expected to immediately post it on Reverb for $12,000 plus $200 shipping, a 12 spring installed,...

Re: What music are you listening to?

I’ll check that out! I was a Buckethead collector back when he had only ten albums or so (I remember importing a Japan-only release he did with Brain), but almost couldn’t help but fall off when he started releasing 10,000 CDs and singles each year. It's really unbelievable how prolific Buckethead ...

Re: What music are you listening to?

Listening to Buckethead these days, Soothsayer, Whitewash, The Other Side of the Dark, Siege Engine, and The Redeem Team but lately find myself putting Crumple (Parts 1 and 2) on repeat.

Re: “Green” ‘98 Classic on Reverb

Very nice, BUT. . . [rant] It would be a whole lot nicer if the seller would clean the flippin' crap off it and polish it before offering it for sale! I just don't get why people do this, you wouldn't sell your car with dirty windows and covered in dust and mud would ya?! :evil: [/rant] Yup very tr...

Re: “Green” ‘98 Classic on Reverb

Yup seems to be a feature on the transparent green Classics, the gold fret markers really give it a slightly special feel.

Re: New Member Parker Fly Found in the TRASH

Wow! Yes BP makes it a Parker Fly Deluxe, and made in USA.

All the best with the restoration. Hopefully the guys who are more experienced might chime in with suggestions.

Re: I am just blown away...

Yes agree completely. I waited 20 years before taking the plunge to buy a Parker Fly, and found this site just in time, enough for me to learn so many things in such a short period, leading me to making a much more nuanced purchase.

Re: Could Parker guitars return?

I'd love to see Parker guitars come back, but alas, I don't see that happening (yet). If Parker rose from the ashes like the phoenix, I too would be a happy camper. Insights and incites by Notes I agree Notes_Norton , and I feel the same way. It’s more wishful thinking on my part, yet I do observe ...

Re: Besides Reverb, where can you buy a 7 string parker

With Parker guitars, especially rarer ones like your MaxxFly 7, my advice is to leave no stone unturned. Reverb every day, Google alert keywords like “Parker Fly Seven”, “MaxxFly 7”, save those same phrases on instagram, and search search search daily. It at least means that should one surface, you ...

Thank you so much Marc. Illuminating and also helped me understand the difference in Aristides’ approach.

Hey VJ thanks for the reply. Yes exactly, one would have to think hard about what aspects to carry forward, to balance between carrying the vision forward while also making it economically viable. The reason I bring up Aristides is purely the fact that they also seem to be forward thinking, quite in...

Could Parker guitars return?

Nothing serious, just random thoughts. I just always think about how Parker guitars could make a comeback, and how the world at large is missing out not knowing about Parker guitars haha. It's still superior to so many brands out there. My latest thought is how about if Aristides bought the rights, ...
