Guitar great Vernon Reid's specially designed Fly Deluxe
English guitar wizard Vernon Reid is known for his heavy-metal stylings with Living Colour - but has also made quite the name for himself as a versatile solo artist and producer. Reid needs an instrument that can handle his eclectic playing style - so he and Parker put their heads together to develop the technology-packed Vernon Reid Signature Fly Deluxe. Delivering everything from straight-out rocking via DiMarzio pickups to unbelievable MIDI- and piezo-generated tones, the Parker Vernon Reid Signature Fly Deluxe is an axe for the sonically adventurous player.
Roland GK MIDI kit, for a serious tonal range
One of the premier features onboard the Parker Vernon Reid Signature Fly Deluxe is its Roland GK pickup kit, so you can tap into Roland's world of guitar synthesized tones. With it, you can call up alternate tunings in the middle of a song - set it up so you've got a bass sound on your 5th and 6th strings and a nylon-string sound on first and second strings - or play through an entire virtual amp rig. It's exciting technology for the tone-loving guitar player - and a system that opens up a nearly endless hall of tonal doors.
RMC piezo delivers acoustic-like tones
Complement the Parker Vernon Reid Signature Fly Deluxe's DiMarzio and GK pickup sounds with the onboard RMC piezo pickup. With the piezo, you'll be able to dial in a mix of a acoustic-like sounds, giving you access to a warmer and more articulate flavor. Use it to give dimension to your furious leads - or to round out your chord-chugging with a unique new flavor.
Slim, contoured body with patented neck-through design
Parker's signature design and construction are evident in the Vernon Reid Signature Fly Deluxe. The 1-piece poplar body is perfectly matched to a basswood neck with Parker's patented neck-through design. The carbon finger board makes the neck very resistant to bowing and twisting, provides a fast playing surface, and still has the feel of wood. The Vernon Reid Signature Fly Deluxe also features Parker's thin glass/carbon exoskeleton to produce an amazingly lightweight, but full-sounding, guitar.
