I have a Nitefly SA, SSH, Stereo Smart Switching Jack. I love this guitar. My collection now consists of a backup 335, and this Baby. Original dimarzios are replaced with Seymour Duncan Cool Rail, Hot Rail, and Dimarzio PAF bridge. With low action and Fender super bullet strings, this guitar nearly plays itself!! I love the acoustic blends. Currently running thru the house mix & Peavey Classic 30 Amp & Digitech GNX 3, need I say more? I plan to try the new Fender Smart Switch SA1 pickup selector. Buy the Guitar and satisfy your musical cravings. When I go to the test drive others, I'm not impressed, there are other great guitars out there, (had some top of the line Gibson, Fender) This Nitefly works for me. I am looking for a click type volume/tone knob, one that holds the setting on all guitars. I would buy it again, or a Deluxe Fly. I now travel light and powerfully smooth. Thank the Lord for this wonderful instrument setup.
I thought I would never stop playing my Hamer Phantom or Studio, but I haven't touched them in almost 1 1/2 years. I have the Nitefly SA and the Nitefly M. I usually like the SA more but they are close in sound and play identically. These are the finest guitars I have ever played and I have played for 37 years and have played most everything. You can get almost any sound you want by blending the acoustic and electric sounds. The trem setup is the finest I've used. You can select locked, bend down, or floating. Very easy to adjust and it stays in tune. The real story on this guitar is it's neck. The feel, the frets, the conical fingerboard add up to an awesome feeling/playing neck. I found the edge of the fingerboard was kind of square (sharp edge) but got used to it in about 3-4 days and don't notice it anymore. The stainless frets feel like they are oiled, virtually no drag on the string. Bending is a breeze. The workmanship and quality is top notch. The only thing I would change are the pickups (JB and PF59), like the MOJO has. I have gotten used to the sound of the Dimarzios and are not too bad but eventually I want to change to the Duncans. The acoustic sound is very good compared to the other electric/acoustics I've had. The "piezo bark" is not present but it still doesn't sound just like an acoustic. I run mine stereo (Ultra 410 electric, Delta Blues 210 acoustic) and everyone in the band commented on the great sound compared to my other guitars. I got mine before the sellout and hope the new owners keep the quality. Anyone that plays electric and acoustic should check out this Awesome Axe.
second guitar after some relatively nice strat copy that I rewired and heavily modified. This guitar kicks a**!!! I play a lot of styles of music ranging from like serious metal to like indian music and there are so many sounds to choose from I can make everything sound great. Super versatile... I even rigged this crazy system so I can change effects loops by flicking the switch that controls magnetic and piezo pick ups....
I?ve own this guitar for 7 years, and the fretboard remains as good as new, It?s feels great!. The construction it?s really good, nice design and really solid. The acoustic sound it?s good. The sound that the nitefly produce it?s my favorite for ballads or soft rock, pop, light jazz, it has a good funk sound also.I?m not going to lie to you saying that this guitar it?s perfect for everything, don?t expect to play with this guitar drop tunings, heavy metal or having endless sustain, this guitar it?s an elegant guitar with a sound of his own. I?m not reviewing this guitar for what it can?t do, but what it can do. It?s a great guitar but you decide, I?ve no regrets with this guitar, it?s a keeper!
Amazing amount of features. Theres the Piezo system for acoustic sounds which is awesome and used more frequently then I would have expected. There is a mono/stereo output so if you have a stereo cable you can put your piezo sound out one amp and your magnetic pickup sound out of another amp. this is an amazing feature that I've never seen on any other guitar. The locking tuners are great, stay in tune, and make it much easier to change strings. The carbon fiber neck makes it smooth as butter. USA made and tough stuff. The shape alone is amazing. You may look at this guitar and think you have to be extra careful with it, but no, its durable and will last forever. Oh yeah, stainless steal frets are a nice bonus to, no wearing and tearing.
I love the way the NiteFly plays. I would recommend anyone considering a solid electric in this price range to try it out. I prefer this to any Fender or Gibson I have tried, in fact, the playability, for rock blues style at any rate, is a full cut above any other guitar I have tried. This is due to the extremely smooth neck and perfectly set stainless steel frets, which are high - just right for bending notes. The setup is a snap, the locking tuners are great, the tremolo just works. I use elixirs 9's - what a slick setup. Plus the piezos add a whole new dimension to the sound - and stereo.
I have played several guitars over the years from Fender, G&L, Yamaha, and Ibanez. I original purchased the P-38 just to see what the hype was about. I was truely amazed that it became my favorite guitar over much more expensive axes. The nitefly simple blows all the others away, I have so much versatility with the unique wiring of the pickups that I can duplicate the sounds of 5 other magnetic base axes and then the acoustic portion of the act is flawless. The playability to perfect it allows the ability to be very precise, and the ability to straight out fly through licks with a precise capture of the lick to the amp. Several times I find myself stopping just to admire the workmanship and accurancy of the guitar to capture some of the suttle little tricks I like to pull off. This is the "only" guitar I can play these days, everything else feels like a chunk of wood with strings and no character. If you want perfection, there's "only" one chioce - PARKER GUITARS!
This Bad Boy sounds great no matter what type of music you play. This is my primary guitar. It can do it all and if you mix the pickups you can get a sound that is totally unique to Parker. I have been playing for 12 years and I have never played a better axe. It's really easy to string and rarely comes out of tune even after travelling in a gig bag. I could go on and on, so I won't. Peace.
I've had my nitefly for about 7 years, and I absolutely love it. I play it through a Zoom GFX-8 effects processor, and either my Fender 4-10 Hot Rod Deville, or my old 1963 Rickenbacker. I had the factory pickups replaced and went to two dual coil pickups, a humbucker in the neck, and a dimarzio tone-zone in the bridge, and got rid of the mid pickup. Its versatility is unmatched by any other guitar out there. If you like to play anything and everything, this is the one you need. It can go from a fat strat blues sound (for you Stevie Ray fans), down to a brutal crunch that will peel the paint off walls. I've also created some pretty awesome sounds with the active piezos, clean and dirty. The action is nice and low for those fast runs, but it still has a nice amount of sustain. And it's really light for active musicians who stand on stage for a couple hours a night. The vibrato is pretty sturdy too, I can dive mine half way down to China and back and it'll still be in tune. The only downfall to this axe is if you like to tune real low. It'll tune down 1/2 or full step, and to drop D and open E pretty good, but if you're into heavier tunings like down 1 1/2 steps or more, it can get pretty tricky and time consuming. Other than that, this guitar is flawless.
I bought this guitar 1 year ago... its amazing, the perfect tone, the body, the piezo, its a versatile guitar and the best so far... The best guitar ever i own
