    I had bought a Parker P-38 when first learning the guitar...not a good idea. The guitar is great but not for learning it is very responsive so you can hear ALL of your mistakes which is a bit of a turnoff when learning. I've lusted after the guitar since getting better and found a great deal on one. The P-38 made my USA telecaster obsolete and got me thinking. I ended up trading in my Gibson LP studio and US telecaster for a Custom Parker Nitefly M in Tangerine. I can now cover the tonal variety of strats, teles, and the LP thanks to the Nitefly and reach yet other tones you wouldn't have ever expected to achieve in an electric. This guitar can replace 5. Seriously.

    Very Technical guitar

    By Silentwater48

    from New York

    I have owned this guitar for about 2 years, i love this guitar, its the most comfortable versitile guitar ive ever played. However after playing a telecaster through a fender delux amp, i noticed that the nitefly m does not even come close to the tone of that guitar through any amp, and they are around the same price. Please email me if there is an amp you think i should try, thanks. It is an amazing guitar, but for the price, i would look possibly into another guitar.

    Superb value

    By MusicMan 101

    from Columbia, SC

    The features of the Parker Nitefly M have been given elsewhere, and it is a guitar capable of replacing many others. The comfort level is amazing. Since there appears to be no Nitefly M manual, however, here is a map of the controls as they apply (at least) to my instrument:1. Knobs: the front (closest to neck) knob controls the magnetic pickup volume; the middle knob (push-pull, up for single coils, down for double) is also a treble cut-off knob for the magnetic pickups; the back knob controls piezo volume.2. Switches: the back (farthest from neck) switch controls choice of pickups, down for piezo only (in which case the back knob controls all volume), middle for both piezo and magnetic, and up for magnetic only (in which case the front knob controls all volume). The front switch (closest to neck) is the magnetic pickup selector (down for bridge, middle for both, up for neck).Hope this helps: please correct any errors.

    I love it

    By SilentSound

    from New york

    I played this guitar once, I fell in love with it, its unfourtunate I dont havea carrier around my area, but this guitar is amazing, the fret board is so nice, you barely need to put any pressure on the strings, and the coil tapping is really cool. You can gat an acoustic sound out of the electric guitar. In my opinion its the best you can get, for what it is, its not that expensive, the quality of the guitar is great, and has ammazing feaatures, and the sound is incredible. Much better than and of the "real" guitars like Fender or Gibson.

    A+++ quality!!

    By Parkerman

    from Princeton, WV

    I have owned this guitar for about 6 months now and I can't be more impressed with the quality workmanship. This is how a guitar should be made. It absouletly stays in perfect tune. The neck is as smooth as butter. Good tremolo and pickups. The upper register notes sing out like a beautiful bird, and sustain well. It is pricey ,but you get your money's worth with this axe.

    P-44

    By Dimitris Nanos

    from Athens, Greece

    I own Parker P-44 but i have used NiteFly M, P-36 and PM-20, so my rate goes to Parker generaly. Either U.S.A. or Korean models,like mine, have very good quality of constuction. You can easily reach 22th fret. They sound perfect. I don't recomend them if you play only metal.

    Parker Nitefly M-azing

    By GacKy27

    from Chicago, IL

    Right out of the box I fell in love with this guitar. I didn't even have to tune it my first time playing it, the Sperzel locking tuners are really a great feature. The fret-board is very quick and it just feels great holding it. The upper register is absolutely immaculate, I love the sound of the pinch harmonics the Nitefly can produce from the higher notes. The low end and middle end is nothing to take lightly either. I love how this guitar is so versatile also. I can play anything from Iron Maiden to Phish to Hendrix, etc. I usually play heavier rock, but if you get an amp with a decent clean channel and a wah pedal, this baby does all the rest of the work and gives you an awesome "funky" sound that I personally love. All in all this a great guitar if you are a serious musician from any style. I have played many guitars including Gibson, Fender, and all those other "big" names. I have found that none of them give you as much range or versatility as a Parker. I am very happy with my Nitefly.

    Parker Nitefly - M

    By LP Mike

    from Tolland, CT

    A truly outstanding instrument. This guitar is versitile - you can achieve multi dimensional tone by mixing the piezo and dimarzio pickups. I'm currently playing the Nitefly through a Marshall JCM 2000 DSL 401 and have been able to get great sounds ranging from single coil (Strat Like) to the Les Paul (59 Humbucker) warmth. I have been a long time fan of both Gibson and Fender, but since buying this axe, I have enjoyed the best of all worlds in one guitar. Another great feature is the weight. If you're considering a Parker, the Nitefly is a good way to go!

    Ex Fender player

    By JT-V_3AJ

    from Sycamore

    If you buy one of these guitars, be prepared to leave all your old guitars collecting dust. I have owned this guitar for over two years now and I still love it. I can't play anything else live. Be warned! after owning a Parker, a trip to the guitar store to play the latest product by Fender, Ibanez, Gibson and PRS will have you shaking you head and going home to play your Parker. While they are expensive, they are in my opinion the best guitar out there for live, on stage playing. So many possiblities. We all know about the necks, frets, pickups, piezos and such. Nothing, and I mean nothing even comes close!
