A Solidbody Electric Yet "Acoustic" Guitar!

Crafted by master builders, the Bronze Fly is among Parker's most exclusive and desirable guitars available. The Bronze Fly is a one-of-a-kind solidbody electric guitar known for its stunning balance across all six strings and its clear acoustic-like voice at any volume. A single piece of old-growth Sitka composes its body, complete with a 24-fret reinforced basswood neck. Custom Fishman piezo pickups and an active filtering preamp are onboard the Bronze Fly to deliver gorgeous, sparkling acoustic tones. When you want a fresh voice and a fresh look, it's the Parker Bronze Fly.

Parker Bronze Fly Guitar at a Glance:
  • Sparkling, natural acoustic-like sound
  • One-piece body and carbon-glass-epoxy reinforced neck for light weight
  • Custom Fishman piezo pickups and preamp for clear acoustic-style tone
Sparkling, natural acoustic sound

Night after night in different rooms with different sound systems, the Bronze Fly delivers sparkling natural acoustic-like tone without feedback problems. The Bronze Fly's amazing tone and clarity is the result of all Parker's innovative design and construction qualities: the solidbody and one-piece neck, the custom bridge and special electronics. In addition, the Bronze Fly incorporates bronze strings that impart a special tonal quality to the guitar. You have to hear a Bronze Fly to believe it!

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

As with all Parker guitars, the Bronze Fly relies on Parker-designed body and neck configurations to ensure light weight with optimum performance. The one-piece Sitka spruce body is joined to a solid basswood neck that is reinforced with carbon-glass-epoxy resin to provide strength that belies the Bronze Fly's amazing 4 lb. weight. The "wide regular" neck shape and a fretboard coated with .020" carbon-glass-epoxy makes for easy playability.

Custom Fishman piezo pickups and preamp for clear acoustic-style tone

The amazing acoustic sound of the Bronze Fly is also due to Parker's use of a six-element custom Fishman piezo system, married to a Fishman-designed active preamp. This combination produces clear, bell-like tone and sustain without feedback worries. An active 2-band EQ also provides sound shaping capabilities, and the Bronze Fly's output can be split stereo or summed mono, with a "Smart Switching" jack that automatically senses the connector type.
