Offered is another magnificent Parker Fly Supreme built when Ken Parker still owned and was running the company. This example was built in 1997 and has a Honey finish. As a "Pre-Refined Era" Fly,  it has all the original details unique to this incredible design, including the face-mounted tremolo tension wheel, stereo output control, ribbon wiring, the original Fishman piezoelectric acoustic pickup system and DiMarzio humbuckers. Near the top of the Fly model food chain, this Fly Supreme has a solid flame maple body used in combination with a basswood neck along with all the other great features, including the carbon fiber fretboard and body and neck reinforcements,  stainless steel frets and more.

Like all Parker Fly guitars, this instrument is incredibly light weighing just 5.6 pounds and it nearly plays itself.  The combination of humbucking pickups, coil splitting and a built in piezo system give this instrument almost limitless tone capabilities. If you can imagine a tone, it's likely your Fly can reproduce it for you. Please check out the brief sound sample included. This instrument is currently setup with Elixir 10's and the appropriate trem spring.

This fabulous early era Fly Supreme was a 1990's sound studio spare made available to artists and it remains in fabulous condition. It has no cosmetic flaws of any significance. The straplock hardware is non-original, as is the b-string tuner which was replaced with the same model Sperzel because the locking mechanism was not working properly. This guitar is otherwise in near mint condition.  I've bought and sold nearly forty (40) Parkers over the years and this is one of the cleanest Supreme models of this era that I've ever come across.

In that Parker guitars are no longer being manufactured, there will be few opportunities to own an a high-end model like this example, particularly a "pre-refined era" Supreme in such fine condition. Make this unique and collectible instrument yours now while you can. Very special indeed!
