Note: If you are looking for stock OEM parts, we strongly recommend that you contact Mike Gallenberger at Gman.music on Reverb or wiguitar on eBay to see if the part you need is available in his stock.
-Phase one of Fly Clone Project is to model or source every component of the original Parker Fly guitar (1993-2003) as well as some aspects of the early "refined" (2003+) Parker Fly and some other models; this includes a comprehensive list of all bridge components, electronic components, screws, and so on. Producing CAD models of all components will ultimately allow us to fabricate parts through 3D-printing and machining methods.
See the Anatomy of a Fly to check the status of Phase one; we have made an open-source repository of models available as described here.
-Phase two involves determining how best to make the “cloned” parts available to Fly owners through this website with a sustainable workflow.
-Phase three involves the creation of the advanced and specialized tooling used to create specific Fly components including springs, the fretboards, and stainless steel frets.
-Phase four involves the adaptation of existing parts for new functionality and operation, and ultimately: experiments toward new innovations.
Project work began in spring 2018 and will continue indefinitely as part of the ongoing research of the Electric Guitar Innovation Lab.
