Custom for Parker
Fly Neck PHWP1
The original Parker Fly neck pickup was
based on the Air NortonTM. The
new P1 neck model is one of the first generation of pickups designed
from the ground up specifically for the Fly. It is based on new
research and technology, as well as extensive feedback from players
in live and studio environments. The result is a pickup that combines
low magnetic pull with outstanding dynamics and wide tonal range.
Performance in every area is enhanced. The overall sound is warm
and clean enough for jazz, but response to pick attack is powerful
and immediate enough rock and blues soloing.
Neck position on all Parker Fly models.
May also be used in bridge position for bright, open sound.
One of the aims of the P1 was to give
the Fly a classic neck humbucker sound. Traditionally, this requires
a fixed-bridge guitar with a 22-fret neck (and 2 or 3 more pounds
of wood!). The P1 comes remarkably close to this sound by using
a soft magnetic field that extends further along the string length
and a ceramic magnet in a patent-applied-for structure that has
as much warmth as Alnico 5, but with a quicker attack and presence
similar to Alnico 2. This also results in a hotter, more open
"notch sound" in the Fly center pickup selector position, especially
when paired with a bridge pickup with similar capabilities like
