Hi everyone. Here is my beloved Parker NiteFly SA NFV4 series guitar in excellent condition. Transparent Flame red colour with white pearlescent fingerboard. Carbon fibre/glass composite neck with jumbo Stainless steel frets in excellent condition. Restrung with Adagio strings Extra light Gauge 9. New battery box fitted along with a new Fishman piezo unit, complete with T Bar Allen wrenches, Parker Whammy bar. Parker Gig bag with Parker Luggage label. Certificate of authenticity from Parker Guitars USA with notable RRP of $1999.00. Serial Number 060060 puts it as manufactured in the US in June 2000. Sounds and plays so incredibly well. Lightweight, resonant, warm and vibrant. DiMarzio custom wound pickups - 2 Single Coils, 1 Humbucker and Fishman Piezo pickup in the bridge as well for acoustic tones. Neck and action is superb - plays like a dream. Includes tremolo arm and original paperwork.The NiteFly 3 (NFV3) & 4 (NFV4) models were introduced at the January 1998 Winter NAMM show and begin shipping the next month. These new "improved" NiteFly guitars were equipped with a special Fishman® NiteMix™ active circuit that allowed the piezo and magnetic signals to be mixed right from the guitar. This new active mixer & pre-amp circuit allowed the two signals to be summed in mono and sent to one amp or to be split in stereo and each signal sent to a separate amp selectable with a pickguard mounted Stereo/Mono switch. Body and neck construction remained the same as the NiteFly 1 & 2 (NFV1 and NFV2). Production lasted until 2000.The NFV3 was the three single coil model.All of the reviews for this guitar were highly complimentary and I loved playing it until arthritis in the wrists is stopping me from playing. It will be sorely missed.Those of you who are looking at this make and model of guitar know already of its pedigree and playability, mainly down to its light construction weight. The Swamp Ash body is highly lauded as the best type of wood for guitar bodies and the thin neck and low action makes it a truly versatile axe. The Peizo element gives beautiful acoustic tones and there are plenty of YouTube clips available to demonstrate its awesome presence. (YouTube -  Kristofer Dahl - I saw him play one of these and I had to have one...).I am open to very sensible offers. No swaps thank you in advance.Collection is preferable in person due to its high value, but if it has to be shipped then I will pack it as best as possible. £50 charge includes fully insured with a reputable carrier. UK only. Please message for further info.
