Offered here is a fabulous "pre-refined" era Parker Fly Classic in "Emerald Green" finish. Built in 1999, this guitar has all of the early and revolutionary design elements that genius Ken Parker envisioned for the Fly. Such early models can be easily identified by the exposed balance wheel and four button control layout, features which were eliminated in later versions in an effort to control manufacturing costs. Many Parker aficionados are adamant that these pre-2003 guitars, built while Ken still owned the company, are the best Parkers that were ever produced.

This Classic has a Mahogany body and a Basswood neck. The electronics include DiMarzio humbuckers and a Fishman piezo systyem. It has the original Fly features, including the aforementioned face-mounted balance wheel, four-button control layout, the push-button piezo/stereo activation switch, etc. It weighs just 4.9 pounds and plays like butter. It sounds great too, as evidenced by the provided sound sample. It is currently setup with .10 gauge strings and trem spring, but .09 and .11 gauge springs are also included.

Despite being two decades old, this one-owner 1999 guitar still looks like new and appears to have been a "case queen" it's entire life. I've bought and sold dozens of Parker guitars over the past decade and few of the "pre-refined" era Flys I've had were in better cosmetic and functional condition than this example. The stainless steel frets remain in near flawless condition as well. It comes in it's original Parker molded hardshell case, along with the trem arm, adjustment wrenches, .09 and .11 gauge trem spring and Parker booklet.

If you have been looking for a super clean example of one of these early Parkers to add to your collection, here it is. Make this near mint Emerald Green beauty yours today!
