Post by andrea.costanza »

Hi guys,

Hi @andrea.costanza—I believe that those screws work in tandem with the springs to allow the pickup to be raised or lowered, so if you remove the pickup cover, the spring should be loose. Once you take the cover off, you'll be able to see how it all assembles, I think. You can re-seat the spring around the screw and then put it all back together. Easy fix (I think!).

The guitar probably took a bump during shipment and the springs moved—probably not a big deal, and probably would never happen again.

Let us know how it goes!

One more little help if i can ask is about the production year:
this Parker Nitefly Mojo Cherry has Serial 0306073

if YYDDDPP > march 2003
03 = Year 2003
060 = Day 60th day 1st of march
73 = Production 73rd guitar

if MMYYPPP > march 2006
03 = Month march
06 = Year 2006
073 = Production 73rd guitar

This ☝🏻 for sure. The NiteFly Mojo and pickup rings on the NiteFly first appear in the catalogs in 2004.

The humbucker mounting rings on the Parker guitars that have them are more or less the same ones that have been standardized since 1957:
