The MAXXimum In Basses
The new Maxx Fly Bass represents the culmination of Parker’s 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. It will be debuted at Winter NAMM 2012 and be available for $5999.99.
The body is crafted of swamp ash. 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 24 fret carbon glass epoxy fretboard and Hipshot® Ultra Light tuners. A fretless version is also available. The Parker Maxx Fly Bass represents a new standard in a premium, high-end bass performance bass.
