Well, as some of you may know, I'm looking for a new guitar. I played a parker a while ago and loved the sound, and feel of it. The peizo was a big plus too.

My only question is, How is the tremolo on these? Is the tuning fairly stable? Or it will just fall out of tune shortly after using it.

Thanks guys.

I've used the Nitefly and the Deluxe and love the tremolo on them.
Very stable and doesn't get your instrument out of tune.
I don't think you'll be disapointed...

You seem to use your Nitefly more than your deluxe.. why's that?

I've played on Kris's Parker a few times, and I can say that the tremolo is great!
Really high quality and it's very easy to work with. And i did not experience any tuning issues smile.gif

Ooh, I'd love a Parker... I just love the design!
Just too bad that all the Parkers I've seen here in Norway are way too expensive for a student sad.gif

The tremelo system is fine. They never go out of tune when using them. Really high quality.

Just because I try to keep the Deluxe for studio work only. I use the Nitefly for my teaching here and at school and it's just more handy...

I am currently playing on a Parker nitefly here in alaska for all my gigs. Never had a issue with the tuning. Even when it is stored in its case traveling for days it still stays in tune. Now if I can quite snapping my E. Gotta love locking tuners!!
