Delivers premium electric and acoustic tones

Truly a one-of-a-kind guitar, the Fly Artist is capable of producing everything from biting electric lead sounds to bell-like acoustic tones. Its dual pickup system employs the best Seymour Duncan designs for magnetic pickups plus Graph Tech piezo elements.

One-piece body and carbon-glass-epoxy reinforced neck for light weight

The Fly Artist is made from a single piece of solid, vertical-grain, old growth Sitka spruce, which showcases and enriches the piezos more than any other body material. The 24-fret basswood neck reinforced with carbon-glass-epoxy resin completes the sonic equation, creating thicker, warmer, more complex tones and a gigantic bottom end that will send your music to new levels of luscious crush. Truly in a class by itself, the Fly Artist will draw out and display your musicianship. The sound and strength belie the Fly Artist's amazing 4.5-pound weight. The wide regular neck shape and a fretboard coated with .020" carbon-glass-epoxy makes for easy playability.

Custom Seymour Duncan magnetic and Graph Tech piezo pickups and preamp

Dual Seymour Duncan magnetic pickups in an HH configuration with a push/pull coil tap draw out the Fly Artist's electric qualities. The amazing acoustic sound of the Fly Artist is due to the 6-element Graph Tech piezo system, married to a Graph Tech-designed active preamp. The piezo tones are the most natural and transparent that you'll find anywhere. A 3-way Mag/Piezo selector switch lets you combine tones. The Fly Artist's output can be split stereo or summed mono, with a "Smart Switching" jack that automatically senses the connector type.

Don't wait for your chance to own one of these premium Parker guitars! The Fly Artist and all Parker Select Series models are made in limited quantities, so call a Sweetwater Sales Engineer today to reserve one for yourself!
