A little blurb:

The one guitar maker to achieve the feat of making a truly midi guitar was the original Parker Guitars. Parker outfitted their NiteFly with a Virtual DSP Corp.’s MidiAxe guitar-to-MIDI converter system. This gave the guitar an honest to goodness midi connection onboard. The only outboard gear the guitar needs is a small phantom power supply that connects to the end of the midi cable.

This beautiful instrument solved so many issues for the guitar synthesizer player. Bulky pitch to midi converters and cumbersome 13 and 24 pin floor units were no longer necessary The Parker Midi Fly now gave the guitarist the ability to interface with any synthesizer on the market.

Parker also made the electronics on the original Midi Fly very simple. There is one small knob and two small switches on the lower horn on the guitar. The knob is for volume, and the switches control tracking and octave respectively.
