Tele Sound with Parker Feel

By Noah Ross

from Phoenix, AZ

Back when Guitar Center used to carry Parkers in the stores, I picked up a Nitefly for the first time and was blown away by it. It was lighter than any guitar I'd ever felt, the neck was ultra fast, and it screamed. Plus, with the flick of a switch, it sounded like a full-bodied Electric/Acoustic. A few years ago I really got into the blues, and specifically the sound of Telecasters. When I heard about this model of Parker, I had to get one, and I wasn't disappointed. It sounds like a Tele, but it plays like a Parker. It's about 7 pounds, so it never digs into your shoulder. The neck is super fast, so you can even shred on it if you want, and all your blues slides and bends just fly out of your hands. This guitar only has one minor downside, the super thin neck, so you have the potential to bend right off the fretboard if you bend away from the middle, but a few days of playing and getting a feel for it should remedy you of this problem. If you love the look and feel of a Parker guitar, and you love the sound of a Telecaster, then you can't go wrong with this gorgeous hybrid.

Single coil sweetness

By Jake

from Washington, D.C.

Just like you would expect from any of Parker's guitars, this thing feels amazing. The Neck profile is different and great, and the stainless steel frets feel amazing, especially for bends. The ash body and the Seymour Duncan singles gives the Southern Nightfly a really great vintage tone while keeping all of the modern features you would expect from Parker. I didn't really get to try out the piezo bridge, but knowing parker, I'm sure it's great. A little pricey, but highly recommended.


Get one before they're gone!

By Casey

from Charleston, IL

NOTICE: Parker Guitars has discontinued the NiteFly line, in favor of their new DragonFly bolt-ons. If you ever thought about getting a NiteFly, you don't have much time left. This is a great guitar. It can nail the classic Tele tones, as well as having the piezo bridge to either split out or mix in. Plus, I guarantee you have never played a Tele with a neck as good as the one on this guitar. The carbon-fiber wrapped Maple neck is sleek and smooth, and those stainless steel frets let you country guys bend your notes as smooth as a baby's backside. It takes a bit to get used to, but once you do, it's hard to play anything else. FYI, the new Parker DragonFly bolt-on's have stainless steel frets, but on a traditional maple neck with an ebony fretboard; but none of them are set up like a Tele. So if you want the legendary Parker playability and flexibility, and Tele tone, you need to get this guitar NOW.
