Kent Parker is well-known for his master luthier skills and one-of-a-kind archtop guitars, but perhaps more than any other of his creations, the Fly is his most talked about. Introduced in 1993, Ken Parker teamed up with Larry Fishman to create a guitar that was made of composite materials and combined traditional magnetic pickups with piezoelectric pickups. By doing so, Parker gave musicians the ability to access both electric and acoustic sounds. Another unique characteristic about the Fly is that it's built with an exoskeleton to give the instrument additional strength and increased sustain. With each and every instrument cut from carefully-examined solid Sitka spruce, Fly guitars are created by Parker's top craftsmen and the result is an axe that looks as stunning as it sounds.
To kick off your search in this catalog, check out the top-rated Fly Mojo Electric Guitar in Transparent Cherry. Like all Flys, this guitar is extremely lightweight, versatile and its carbon-glass fretboard allows lightning-fast playability. As for its tone, that's generated by genuine Seymour Duncan Jazz and JB pickups. All this, along with a Fishman 6-element piezo system and easy-to-use vibrato makes the Fly Mojo ideal for any shredder with high aspirations.
Or, for a Fly that incorporates cutting-edge MIDI technology into its design, go with the Fly Mojo MIDI Electric Guitar in Dusty Black. With its plug-and-play connectivity and Roland GK-KIT-GT3 Divided Pickup, the Fly Mojo MIDI allows for total integration with the Roland V-Guitar System, GR-20 Guitar Synthesizer and any Boss GK effect pedal. Of course, the Seymour Duncan Jazz and JB pickups, Fishman Piezo electronics system and Parker custom vibrato bridge are also there to give you the seemingly endless range of tonal possibilities that only a Parker Fly can provide.
