    Cool, at least no ones drooling over the boiled sweetie models, yet. Always thought lime green, pink, blue and purple had that mid life crisis thing... Well here's my old boy jazzer, love it.

    I sold off my other fireflys but Im keeping this one. Necks kinda fat but comfortable. Like a dumbass I am putting more into it than it cost. 57' Gib PAFs, Grover Tuners and Alum stop tail w PIO tone caps. All stuff I have laying around but ya, you could buy a nice epi 335..cept this thing is LIGHT as a feather and bright. $190 guitar w $300 tone :) :) :) :) :) gonna use it downtown at the park, if it gets stolen.. oh well. If they steal my amp and my pedals, then I'm gonna start throwin chingasos :) :)

    These are very nice but I just got that peerless I’m real happy with that guitar. I did put a few bucks into it but I love it, between that and the panther I have my 335-330 Jones covered. But those splayed maple tops look gorgeous

    Wonder what pickups you plan to put in there. Great modding platform for a street busking guitar or whatever you want really.

    Not anymore I guess. It was a toss up between this one and a lemon burst the same buyer had

    I’m
    Thinking Gibson 57 classics. Those are my favorite humbuckers. Second choice would be Seymour Duncan 59’s

    Here are mine:

    None had any issues. Necks are little on the chunkier side but not uncomfortable. Frets were perfect. No sprout, no buzz. Tuners work fine. No issues with electronics. I find them amazing for the price.

    Tele had little high action but I made it to my 'trying to learn slide' guitar so I did not adjust it. No upgrades done to any of them, yet.

    Congrats, looks great! Very similar to Rondo’s Agile offerings from what I can see(made by WMI in S-Korea). I think Rondo sold of their Agile assets last year. Makes sense other brands step in to fill the void.

    Although I’m more a 50s Gold Top kind of guy, that Firefly looks absolutely cool. Congrats! Looking forward to hear your thoughts on the tone.
    I once had a ‘73 Gold Top with mini humbuckers. I payed a lot for it and after 6 months was gone... it was heavy as a boat anchor and couldn’t play it clean no matter how I tried. After that, I banned Les Paul from my list. But it was 2001 after all, I guess I’m ready for a Chibson experience after all these years..:D

    I might by another Crossroads in red because I'm a bit shallow. Does anyone read this though? Shall I stick it up my butt instead?

    Nice, I’m thinking about trying to locate an ES style Firefly strictly as wall art.
