The Nitefly M, though, is now known as the Classic. They go for about $900 used, usually, and seriously can NOT be beat for the money.

Incorrect. The Nitefly M is bolt-on. The Classic is the traditional thin Parker body and "finger jointed" glued neck. Both are all mahogany, though.

Both the Classic and NiteFly are discontinued now, but there are always a few floating around on eBay. I Just got a Galaxy Gray Mojo in thats pretty sweet now that we're sharing pics and all...

Good point, I didn't think of that, and Nick - that guitar is phenomenal.

So what's up with the USA models and no pickup rings/visible mounting screws? What if I (After through some miracle obtaining one of those masterpieces) want to throw BKP's in it

Looking at my Fly Deluxe I believe there are 2 of the hex poles ( in the pickup center itself) that actually screw in direct mounted to the guitar's body. I have seen a few Parker's with BKP's in them not sure if there was re-routing involved to get them to fit or not though.

If i'm not mistaken, BKP can make pickups to fit the Parker mounting method.

As it was said before, the Flys are set-neck. The whole back of the guitar is joined to a molded sheet of carbon fiber.

Actually unless they started recently bkp does not do pickups that fit parkers. Tim told me a few months back that their pole spacing doesn't match up. They can do rewinds though.

I haven't played one since shortly after they first came out. It was like 1996 or something. I was only 16, and I wasn't particularly good or knowledgeable with guitar yet, but to this day I remember that Fly Deluxe being one of the most excellent guitars I ever laid my hands on.

A bunch of people have parkers with bkps in them but in all cases I have seen both the pickups and guitar required modification.

A bit of an odd bump, but the P-Series Parkers are just generic Korean guitars that happen to be sort of in the shape of a Parker. The P-44 Pro has the Parker bridge and piezos, but it doesn't have the stainless frets or the carbon fibre. I'm not sure it's a good trade or not... you'd have to decide if it's worth it to you.

Better maybe (and that's a big maybe, as the USA Parkers I've played have had impeccable fretwork), but good luck finding a Custom Shop that will make anything remotely similar to a USA Parker.

True. More resale value than both my trade offers combined. I figure if i like the p44 pro that much then save up for a higher end fly?
