Re: Hello! Long time Fly Supreme owner, just found this forum! (And need a little help...)

Car manufacturers must be very happy that people don't say "OMG it doesn't look like a '55 Chevy" or "Why can't it look like a '55 Chevy?" when they put a new car out on the market. We’ll said, Paul. Did you ever read this interview Ken have with the New Yorker? https://www.newy...

Re: Hello! Long time Fly Supreme owner, just found this forum! (And need a little help...)

The older those Flys get, the more valuable firsthand troubleshooting documentation becomes. +1 to that comment! And agreed: thanks for doing that, Paul 🙏 Thanks. Glad someone out there thinks so. It's a shame that Parker is now defunct. Car manufacturers must be very happy that people don't say &q...

1flyBOBs

How many of y'all are still getting use out of those 1flyBOB and/or 1flyBOB variants that I used to make?

Re: Hello! Long time Fly Supreme owner, just found this forum! (And need a little help...)

Here’s an on-topic video originally made by a guy in Vegas in 2019. Sadly, he couldn’t repair the saddle; and ended up sourcing a replacement. That's my video. I haven't totally given up on the idea of repairing it but I am having trouble finding conductive epoxy. Super Glue doesn't work because it...

Re: Hi Everyone

Welcome Paul, nice to see you here. I didn't realize you weren't here, as I don't spend nearly the time on the forum that I used to. If you're in touch with anyone else from there that isn't here, please point this site out to them. I just learned about this place like maybe a month ago. I will let...

Re: My Coil Tap Mod for Three More Sounds

Good to see you again Paul, glad you’re still circuit bending. This is cool stuff, love the split humbucking set up. Not a fan of rotary switches on guitars personally- lots of torque that can mess up the wood and then they spin. I’d be inclined to cut a rectangular hole in the back plate and use a...

Re: My Coil Tap Mod for Three More Sounds

I have to get the exact dimensions of the switch that I found, but possibly something like this would work. https://smallbear-electronics.mybigcommerce.com/rotary-switch-2p2t/ That should fit under the PCB. Really is meant to be PCB mounted but still is usable I think. The main question is that sha...

Re: My Coil Tap Mod for Three More Sounds

I think the solution is actually a rotary switch rather than a push pull design. Pretty sure that won't fit under the PCB either... and you still have to give up a control unless you're drilling holes. And there is the knob problem. If you give up a control for the rotary switch then you probably c...

Re: My Coil Tap Mod for Three More Sounds

Pretty cool Paul. The thing for me is that I use the master volume all the time and never use the actual magnetic volume. I would totally be into that mod but I would want to use the magnetic volume for it. The master volume is way too useful for me. Yeah the problem is that if you use a push-pull ...

My Coil Tap Mod for Three More Sounds

I love the overall design of my pre-refined '95 Fly Deluxe. However as someone who started out on a Strat, and has done "the Gilmour mod" which gives seven different sounds/pickup combos with the standard five way switch, the one thing that I always felt limited by with the Fly was having ...

Don't know how many people are here from the old Parker Guitars forum but I was pretty active there when it still existed. I just learned about this website/forum and joined this morning. 8-) Oh my God, Paul! Great to hear from you. And yes, welcome to the tight-knit club of Parker fanatics on this...
