The only bad thing about a Parker Fly is the tone from the pickups as they are designed for hard rockers.
The fit, feel, action, sustain, and acoustics and tuning stability are fantastic.

If it's good enough for Joni Mitchell or Adrian Belew...

That guitar has been around for awhile. He had last year or a couple of years ago on a jam cruise or when he played in the Caribbean somewhere. I was horrified then, i'm horrified now.

I believe last year or the year before that he left the Blue Bolt behind and brought the Black one instead.

Look at all the knobs and switches on that thing. Must have midi control as well as piezo. Do those have graphite necks?

I haven't heard that name in awhile. I talked to him maybe 2 years ago and he was in California now.

He and David Fontaine (from whom I got a lot of good gear info back in '95) are the original Dead Gear Heads in my opinion.
