It had a solid contoured maple body and shared many of the Parker Fly's advanced features like a basswood neck reinforced with Parker's patented carbon fiber/glass/epoxy composite.
And a fingerboard made of the same smooth, stable and durable composite material as the neck.
The Nite Fly 3 (NFV3) & 4 (NFV4) models were introduced at the January 1998 Winter NAMM show and begin shipping the next month.
These new "improved" Nite Fly guitars were equipped with a special Fishman® Nite Mix™ active circuit that allowed the piezo and magnetic signals to be mixed right from the guitar.
4) What does the big wheel that sticks through the back and front of the Fly control? 9) My battery went dead about a week after I purchased my Fly guitar. 10) I did not receive all the accessories with my Parker.
5) When I use the stereo cable and separate amps for the magnetic and piezo pickups I hear a pretty serious hum. 6) Once I placed heavier strings on my Fly, the vibrato just doesn’t work as well as it did when it was new. 7) I heard that I could tell the date my Parker was made by the serial number. Are they supposed to be included with the guitar and if so, how can I get them?
The Parker Fly is has quite complex electronics installed.
The combination of composite fingerboard and stainless steel frets has led to Parker’s reputation for the fastest neck in the business. It was like the NFV1 but with a Di Marzio humbucker and 2 single coil pickups.The Nite Fly was Parker's first bolt-on neck guitar.Electronics include the integrated use of coil split humbuckers, single coil and piezo pickups with active circuitry.The proprietary vibrato bridge uses a unique flat steel spring which returns the guitar to perfect pitch every time.
