Parker Fly Deluxe

In a search for a new weird guitar to mount a Roland GK-2A synth pickup on I found a Black Parker Fly at Guitar Center. I feel in love with it right away because of how strange it looked & how light it was but it also sounded really great! Shortly thereafter I started my relationship with Ken Parker & Brad Strickland. This guitar which was also used in the "Blue Monday" video by Orgy had a customized bridge to allow me to intonate the strings for our lower A# tuning. I really like playing the Parkers but there was no way to build in the Roland GK-2 internal setup as the guitar was to thin. I also realized around this time that I wanted to start creating my own guitars.
So I moved on to the Jackson Roswell Star.
There are to many design breakthroughs on this guitar to list so I'll just link you to the Parker Guitar Site for the story & info on these amazing guitars.
