    If it weren't for visiting this great site so much, I would not have even seen these two great deals. I finally pulled the trigger on one of those Firefly 335 guitars in the blue and a Crazy Cacti pedal. Both are great deals. Both have been reviewed so many times that I don't really think I need to talk about them. I'm just sharing here. They are exactly what the reviews say they are. Cleaning up the guitar and changing strings on it. Will play with both for a couple days and see how I like them. I didn't get a chance to take a pic of my pedal but here is the new guitar right out of the box.

    Been playing both of these all week long. I changed strings and polished frets and took off the pick guard. The tuners are crap and will be the first thing changed. Sounds and plays very good. I like it a lot for my first semi hollow body guitar. It is going to stay. The cacti pedal is amazing. So much tone from such a minor investment. This one will be staying as well.

    Congrats on both! Glad you're happy, hoss... That Firefly is just gorgeous... Either you got one that's exceptionally beautiful, or I haven't been payin enough attention, cause I never noticed they were translucent... But, either way, the Firefly you caught gave me GAS, lol...
    It COULD be because the wife told me on the next payday I can finally get that semi-hollow Tele with the translucent finish and the P-90s that I've had my eye on for a while... That's my "dream" cheap guitar, lol...
    I love how right under the tailpiece of your's, it almost looks "wavy"...

    Oh, and my wife got me that poster as a stocking stuffer last Christmas, lol... But I haven't gotten around to taking the plastic off... So, I saw the letters, but had no idea there was a guitar on it! Lol... Think I'll have to hang it up tomorrow...

    I’ve been on the fence between one of those fireflies, or just springing for an Epiphone. What else other than the tuners do think will need replacement?

    The tuners are really only the bad thing on these for functionality. I might change the bridge for a roller one later but not right away. I might change the knobs just for looks but that is it. Overall it is a very well put together budget guitar.
