    This thing plays better than anything else I have ever touched, and I'm completely converted to Parkers now. I even sold my 7, *gasp* as I just didnt touch it after getting the Mojo.

    Hope y'all enjoy the pics,
    Rory

    I'v been lusting for a PARKER FLY for 3 years! and your pics certainly help fuel my G.A.S for one.. I have two 7's an RG1527 and UV777PBK, Both of them play like a dream .... and to help ease the pain of not having money for a fly at the moment I baught a Parker pm10 hornet wich to my surprise plays and sounds good ( not as good as a FLY :) ) I'm on the verge of selling one of my 7's to finance the purchase of a Fly classic... I have one question for you my good man !... if you where in my shoes what would you do .

    Thanks for the help.

    I can vouch for that guitar. It fucking OWNS and the neck is just awesome.

    Parkers for life!

    Dude I can safely say your GAS for a parker is well founded, nothing comes close. Before I bought the parker I tried out several other high end guitars (PRS, Vigier and a couple of Caparisons), and they were blown completely out of the water. It's fantastic for gigging with too because it's so light.

    I haven't touched any of my other guitars since I got this thing, and I'll probably end up selling them sooner or later.

    Gorgeous guitar. I miss my Fly Classic for the sheer playability and light weight. The natural mahogany finish is gorgeous. I wish they'd done the back in a nice metallic bronze or something that complements it. The back of my blue Fly Classic was an amazing metallic blue/purple that was almost more beautiful than the front.

    One day, i'm sure i'll have a Parker again.

    The back of mine is a kind of root beer metallic bronzey, you can kinda see it in this pic:

    I have a strong feeling that if I ever buy another guitar it will be another Fly haha.

    One question ... Due to its thickness and weight does it feel solid in your hands.

    Yes! Fly's feel just, if not way more solid than most guitars!
