Re: Serial Number Info for Parker Fly, NiteFly, Fly Bass, and Other Parker Guitars

Post by Noodleboy »

I'm having trouble verifying my Nitefly Mojo.
I assume from the examples listed on this forum that it is from May of 2006.
But there is no P before the numbers and there are 7 numbers.
All of the posts I've read indicate there should be either 5 or 6 numbers.
So I'm confused. Hope someone can enlighten me. Thanks.
The serial number is 0506013 USA
The guitar is Trans red bolt on neck HH with pick up rings and active Piezo.
3 knobs 2 toggel switches.

Hi @Noodleboy—it’s a 2006 NiteFly M as you suspected. The NiteFly M with pickup rings had already emerged about that time (see 2004 catalog). The additional character is, I believe, the 0 to designate ‘06 whereas NiteFlys from the ‘90s did not include the 9 when representing 1998.

I don’t recall if the P designation that USM introduced only applied to Flys, but regardless, 2006 was the first year of that serial indicator, but it’s not present on all guitars made in 2006. 🤷
