    For sale is a 1990s Parker Fly Deluxe in metallic silver. Ultra-lightweight, incredibly comfortable guitar. Smooth, slick-feeling fretboard with stainless frets. Plays effortlessly... tapping and hammer-ons just kind of jump off the fretboard. It's very loud acoustically. And, it looks awesome.

    Tremolo can be set to lock, for full-floating operation, or for dive-only. Spring tension adjustment is done by a wheel that makes setups simple. Piezo sounds great, and has the tone control that the newer Parker piezo setups lack (makes a big difference in usability, in my opinion.) Also has stock Sperzel locking tuners.

    The only indications that this is guitar is not brand new are two marks on the bass-side upper edge of the body and one on the tip of the headstock. I have photographed these; they are not visible from the player's or the crowd's perspective, and are quite small.

    I'm selling because, as awesome as this thing is, I really just need the money more. I've got too many instruments. These '90s Flys are a really great way to get a real, full-spec Parker without paying the (pretty absurd) modern prices, and they've been increasing in value in recent years. I'm just looking to get what I paid out of it. I'm looking for $1350 shipped.

    Includes:
    -Original Hardshell case
    -Whammy bar arm
    -Monster stereo Y-cable for routing piezo and magnetic pickup signals to different amplifiers.

    As you can see from the pics above, they're really not very visible at all unless you're staring at them from the right angle.

    Maybe. I'd really prefer cash, but I'm open to offers.

    Hello!
    Do you still got the Fly, and if so, are you willing to consider shipping to Norway? Thanks!
