Honestly, how many times in the past have you thought to yourself, “All I really need to make it big is a guitar with a snakeskin top!”? Of course, you probably never thought you’d actually see one, right? Well, it isn’t something you come across every day, but the folks at Parker Guitars have gone and done it for you! Yup, they actually made a guitar that is quite descriptively called the Parker Fly Mojo Limited Edition Snakeskin. With all the flamed and quilted maple tops being produced today, it’s pretty obvious that the folks at Parker wanted something to totally set them apart from the crowd, and man, they sure did it with this guitar! Once you get used to the idea that the top of this deeply carved, mahogany-bodied limited-edition instrument used to be a real snake – a giant python to be exact – it’s actually a pretty cool-looking guitar, particularly since the unusual body shape of the Parker Fly is unique, even when it’s not being covered in reptile.
But, there’s more to this guitar than just an unusual, eye-catching top. The new Fly Mojo Python guitar includes all of the unique features that have made the Fly Mojo one of Parker’s most iconic models. It includes a thin, carved basswood body and a proprietary carbon-glass material that is bonded to the back of the body, neck, and the entire headstock for superior strength – all in an amazingly well-balanced, ultra-light 5-pound guitar. For pickups, Parker chose a pair of specially designed Seymour Duncan humbuckers with push/pull coil tap controls coupled with a 6-element custom Fishman Transducer piezo pickup system and a specially voiced active stereo preamp. Hardware includes a Parker custom-cast aluminum vibrato bridge, stainless-steel saddles, stainless-steel frets, and Sperzel locking tuners. The Fly Mojo Exotic Python is a real limited-edition guitar: only 50 of these will ultimately be built (at which point they will probably run out of giant pythons)! It ships direct to your door in a custom-fitted hardshell case, with a certificate of authenticity and a sample of the actual snakeskin used on the guitar. Naturally, it’s covered by the Sweetwater 2-year Total Confidence Coverage Warranty™ and includes free FedEx shipping right to your door.
