I traded my G&L Legacy for this Parker NiteFly.
It's a 97' but in near spotless shape.
SS Frets are good a new (as expected)
Has a Piezo bridge w/ an on/off and mix.
Trem is super smooth
Action is like butter.....
Came w/ an extra HSS guard.

Wasn't exactly what i was thinking about because like my trade add stated, I was looking for a dual HB guitar to round out my modest collection.
Kind of caught me by surprise when a local guy offered it up as an even trade cause these new were in the $1800 - $2k range.
It's very Strat-o-rific...
I had the Korean Parker Hornet a few years back and loved the way it played, but not so much on the tones it offered.
So I was instantly curious and had to at least go try it out and see for sure...Well, needless to say I made the trade.....

The trade doesn't surprise me that much. Fly's have kind of a niche
following (like Carvins) and the re-sale values of them aren't anywhere
near the new prices.

I've always wanted to try a USA Parker. That's one brand I've never
owned.

i think one of those will graze my stable some day. this Parker version is cool alright.

a Bolt just passed through the guitars-in-stock section with a color scheme like this. ~so i did my typical drool to lip act, then 'POOF' (as usual)....gone!

nice guitar you got.
