For those waiting for a Firefly 338 hollow body, they are available this morning on Amazon, $149.
We still don't get these here in the U.k.
They were available yesterday. Seems they aren't selling out as quick as they once were.
After many batches, I was expecting that.
Oh man. I want one. but bills have piled up. I've been unloading some gear, but not catching up with the bills.
This is bad.
Last batch took over a week to sell out... keep in mind, the batches are getting bigger all the time.
AND the price went up $10
But I want one of the Tel thin lines they make but sell out really fast
The last batch of Tele’s was only on the guitarsgarden site, lasted two weeks.
Has anyone been able to compare the Firefly 338 to an Epiphone 335 DOT? I sold my Epi because the body was too big for me. I'd like to replace it with a semi-hollow but would like a smaller body, like an Epi 339.
I can't answer that specific question, but I was finding myself not loving the size weight of the Dot, 335 Deluxe, Peavey (something), etc that I was finding in stores. I went with a Ibanez AS73, which is just slightly smaller than the 335 style guitars. I personally wasn't looking for something as small as a 339.
Just looking at the photos and the control spacing, and videos of folks playing them, it seems like the 338 is going to be closer to a 335 style than a 339.
Dean used to make a Boca 6 string that was a really small semi-hollow, closer to a LP body in size, but still double cut. I had one for awhile, but it wasn't anywhere near the same as a larger 335-ish guitar. I traded it in towards a Blueshawk that I couldn't refuse.
The Firefly 338 is a nice in-between size; bigger than a 339, smaller than a 335.
Thanks. Sounds about right to me,
How do they play/sound? I wonder if they sound more LP or more 335. Are many mods recommended or are Fireflys generally pretty decent as-is?
I guess with free shipping and free returns there isn't much to lose.
They are definitely decent as-is. A lot of guys immediately upgrade the tuners, pickups and bridge. Mine has nice tuners but I did replace the pickups. The bridge is on my to-do list. It works fine but has an obnoxious buzz.
I'm not going to say that it's just as nice as a more expensive guitar because that is simply not true. I will say that despite it being the cheapest guitar I own, it gets played more than any other. Can't explain why. It doesn't make sense... and doesn't have to. Good is good.
So at least on par with a similarly priced Squier.
That gold makes for one gorgeous guitar, that's for sure!
There was a batch of Teles recently in Amazon.
There was, but it wasn’t as big a batch as was on the website before them, The ones went up on Amazon exactly one week after they sold out on the website (which lasted two weeks)
DAngit, and they have Walnut ones again, too... I need to find Oil (or Gold) in my backyard, or something...
I'm kinda liking the Walnut/brown 338
I have the iced tea burst 338 in my shopping cart.
Edit: I just pulled the trigger. The site stated that there was one available.
This is for another thread, but I need to stop buying guitars.
