|Introduced at Winter NAMM show 2012, the Maxx Fly Bass is designed to represent 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."|
The body is crafted of swamp ash and is backed with Parker's carbon glass epoxy wrap. Featuring an EMG ‘P’ split-neck pickup, an EMG ‘MMCS’ bridge pickup, and an EMG piezo buffer, the Maxx offers a wide variety of tone. The Parker designed Hipshot bridge also houses the Ghost piezo saddles. The Maxx Fly bass is available in a gloss finish, with colours 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.
