Post For Sale - Parker Fly Deluxe
Hi all,

I'm looking to sell one of my guitars.

This is a Parker Fly Deluxe serial number '235042BP USA'. It contains the revolutionary 'fly wheel' removed to save costs in 2003. The fly wheel / switching allows you to switch between hard tail, downwards only or floating tremolo modes within seconds. The guitar is piezo equipped and does a very good job of sounding like an acoustic.

Trivia - this is, as far as I'm aware, the lightest guitar ever made, weighing just over 4 pounds. It's Kate Moss in guitar form:

Comes with non-standard official parker hard case (worth over £100), instruction manual, tools and stereo cable:

Condition - the guitar is in used condition and has a number of minor cosmetic flaws that barely show due to the colour. There is some light scratching on the guitar in places and this is detailed below. Most notably, the headstock is scratched, there is some buckle rash on the rear and there is a small chip near the bridge - please see photos for details. The light indicator on the backplate (that indicates the charge of the 9v battery needed for the piezo system) is not functioning, but this does not affect the performance of the guitar.

I am looking for a reasonable offer for this instrument, bearing in mind that newer (yet inferior) retail versions sell for at least £2000. Any questions ask away. Thanks!

I've always been interested in trying a full-fat Fly like this. (Only ever played the bolt-ons.) Sadly, you're a bit too far away for me to just drop by! :)

Might I ask why you are looking to sell?

I'm saving to go travelling in April and I don't think I can justify having 2 electric guitars. I have quite a personal attachment to my PGM301 as I'm a big Paul Gilbert fan. Bit of a shame, but you can't win them all.

You're most welcome to fly over here and give it a try ;)

Just this instant sold this for the bargain price of £650 cash.

It could have gone for higher to the right seller, but I was happy to see it go for instant monies to a nice owner.
