Parker Guitars announced their newest bass, the Maxx Fly Bass at the NAMM show earlier this month, one the company says is the “culmination of Parker Guitars’ finest work in a bass.”
The new Maxx Fly sports a swamp ash body with Parker’s trademark carbon glass epoxy wrap. Electronics include an EMG P-style split-neck pickup with an EMG MMCS bridge pickup and an EMG piezo buffer. A Parker-designed Hipshot bridge houses teh Ghose piezo saddles.
The 34″ scale neck is Poplar with the same carbon glass epoxy, with 24 frets and Hipshot’s Ultra-light lollipop tuners. The company offers a fretless option as well. The bass weighs in at around six pounds.
The Maxx Fly comes in three distinct gloss finishes: dusty black, 3-tone sunburst and candy lemon yellow. The bass retails for $5,998.67. For more information, visit Parker Guitars’ website.
