    Sorry i dont have a great camera, ill have some friends take good pictures for me with their nice SLRs hope you enjoyed the show!

    This thing is medium weight, id say 6 pounds, and its much thicker than my other mojo. id say almost a quarter inch all around.

    Sounds like a 1000 pound les paul, its amasing.

    Just what i wanted

    they never have fret markers. I dont like them anyways, I think they are useless anyways.

    Nut width is 1 11/16 i believe, the standard fly mojo spacing. It was my choice. It plays very well, not as low action as my blue one, but very nice. It sounds very meaty.

    There is no need for fret markers, all you need to know is what notes your playing.

    getting the one piece body was the single hardest thing i ever had to do in my life. No one wanted to sell me one. But i lucked out!

    A very serious looking guitar, somehow reminds me of a Tele.
    I wish they were cheap. I would add fret markers, THEN I might know what note I was on:JAM

    Nice!!!!

    I've always loved Parkers, I found myself yearning for an Italian Plum or Majik Blue Deluxe model in my high school years. :D

    Those knobs look AWESOME!

    Not what I would expect from Parker, very nice. How is this guitar constructed compared to the carbon fiber models?

    I always want to get a Parker Fly. However, the fret issue always scare me.

    Few questions regarding custom order.
    1. Are there neck shape options?
    2. How much is the base price for a custom parker?

    Yes indeed there are neck shape options, They all vary a slight bit, but you could get any shape your looking for because the carbon backing is a fabric that is laid over the wood. The wood carve is the true shape and the carbon overlay is less than one mil. thick.

    This guitar was 3500 for them just to make, I supplied the wood, pickups, and electronics. They are custom wound Seymours done by seymour himself and the electronics are an RS kit. The coil split is still in tact yes!

    This guitar is a fly, it is covered in carbon fiber. The only models they make in the custom shop are carbon covered models. The back and neck are covered completely, the only bare wood showing is the top.

    7string, That's a thing of beauty! I particularly like how the grain of the wood matches the shape of the body.

    Do you have any pix of the back?

    Thanks for the compliments. I should take pictures of this guitar next to my 04 mojo. Its much thinner. Kinda nutty.
