    Awhile back I picked up one of the Firefly FFTH Thinline teles and had a issue with the finish flaking off and posted it over at the firefly FB group and they happily sent me a brand new guitar within a week. Well now I have 2 of the same guit6but one with a finish problem so what do you do in that situation? Mod the crap out of it.... So heres my Tele. I pulled out the pups (nothing wrong with the stock ones I just have a few traditional ones already) and put in a rail in the bridge and a strat pickup in the neck. I sanded and stained the top then sanded back and oiled it down to this fine looking geetar... I'll tell you that Firefly guitar and Firebird music have top notch customer service. 20190910_171142.jpg 20190910_172544.jpg 20190910_172551.jpg But anyhoo what ya think?

    Gorgeous. I got a serious hankering for natural finish teles these days. I can't decide if I should buy a router and a slab of wood or a Standard and a mountain of sandpaper. You make a strong case here for the mountain of sandpaper.

    Gorgeous and now a unique guitar!

    Is there any way to contact their customer service other than Facebook? I have tried in the past with no answer.

    I really don't know other than through Amazon or their own website which is guitargarden.com I believe.
