Nah, didn't buy it. Just saw it online yesterday. I like to covet guitars. I have no justifiable reason, or unjustifiable reason to pour out that kinda cash on a guitar when I have a perfectly good one that I can't play all that well already. I just really dig this one!

I don't like how they look.
They sound good and are exeptionally well crafted but I can't play a gutiar this light!
The Parker Fly I played was as heavy as the neck of my Les Paul alone^^

The headstock is the killer for me. It is better than previous models but I just dont like strings floating in mid air. Give me some wood!

Shame because the parkers are clearly very versatile guitars, its just the look of them seems to put people off.

So Im a thumbs down on this one. dry.gif

I've always wondered how that bridge works?

can you really use the tremolo bar and stay in tune?
