Chicago, IL. — March 5, 2009 — Parker Guitars, a leader in innovation and originality within the music world, announced today the addition of the Adrian Belew Signature Fly® to their line of electric guitars. Designed from the ground up to the exacting standards of legendary guitarist Adrian Belew, the Adrian Belew Signature Fly is one of the most advanced and innovative guitars ever built.
The Adrian Belew Signature Fly features an exclusive Dimarzio® bridge pickup along with a revolutionary Sustainiac® Stealth PRO neck pickup which produces intense, predictable and infinite feedback sustain. With the Sustainiac, musicians can create amazing tones, from screaming feedback at any volume to upper harmonics using the unique harmonic mode control. Onboard Line 6 Variax Modeling Components allow guitarists to select from 25 preset sounds including classic acoustic and electric tones.
For even more versatility, the Adrian Belew Signature Fly features computer connectivity that allows artists to customize and create their own tones and custom tunings. Sound equalization is provided by six separate sensors within the RMC bridge saddle, which allows each string’s volume to be processed separately, giving the player unsurpassable tonal control.
“From his early work with Frank Zappa, David Bowie and King Crimson to working with Talking Heads and Nine Inch Nails, Adrian Belew has always been a pioneer who pushes the limits on what is possible with the electric guitar,” said Jody Dankberg, Director of Marketing and Artist Relations at Parker Guitars. “The Adrian Belew Signature Fly combines the easy playability and perfect fretboard of Parker Guitars with ‘out of this world’, cutting-edge components to offer the most technologically advanced electric guitar available today.”
