The new Maxx Fly Bass represents the culmination of Parker Guitars' finest work in a bass. Sacrificing nothing in terms of design and aesthetics, this bass is the ultimate in its class and is a powerhouse of features. It is a bass that a professional musician will turn to time and time again and will be debuted at Winter NAMM 2012 with a retail of $5,998.67.
The body is crafted of swamp ash and is backed with Parker's famous carbon glass epoxy wrap. It’s built to sound big, featuring an EMG® ‘P’ split-neck pickup, an EMG® ‘MMCS’ bridge pickup, and an EMG® piezo buffer. The Parker designed Hipshot® bridge also houses the Ghost® piezo saddles. It is available in a gloss finish, with colors including dusty black, 3-tone sunburst, and candy lemon yellow.
The neck is poplar with a carbon glass epoxy fretboard sporting 24 stainless steel frets and Hipshot® Ultra Light lollipop tuners. The entire bass weighs in at approximately 6 lbs. A fretless version is also available. The Parker Maxx Fly Bass represents a new standard in a premium, high-end performance bass.
