    I'm having hard time not buying one I have to admit. I like the smaller 338 body size and the price is crazy cheep. Most everyone seemed to like them when they bought one.

    Are you viewing on a mobile device and have the Amazon shopping app installed? If I tap the link it'll open to Firefly show products in the app but if I copy the link and paste in the browser I see the guitars.

    What the fuck is a "rock and powder sound"? Like Powderfinger?

    It's too bad it has the black back.

    Oh I see that now with the full link @artandsoul provided, thanks!

    Hmmmm... I may hold out for a Firefly, but I like the square inlays down the first fret, and the headstock binding. Nice

    the only one of those 4 that looks like it has a black back to me is the green one, the gold/tea/brown ones all look like dark brown to me. still dark i guess though if you don't want a dark back. mine (a last-year sunburst) has a black back that looks like the greenburst.

    i'd be real tempted, especially by the tea one, if i didn't already have one that i'd swapped parts out on.

    These are 339 / smaller size and not 335 full size?
    How can you tell?

    The natural, ice tea, and especially maple top brown are very tempting.

    To all of us who want a lighter natural colored back, would you mind or even like something like this?

    PSA:
    GFS has good PUPs and quick connection harnesses. I did my first ever PUP swap on an Epi Dot using that system. It was indeed a challenge, but it was managable and took about an hour.
    Cost is around $100 for PUPs, harness and shipping.

    I'll have to play the stock ones to know, but I would assume so. IMO GFS pickups are superior to all budget guitar pickups.

    If someone could, what are the body dimensions of the FF338 guitars?

    335-ish, or smaller,...339-ish? I cant tell. Anyone got lower bout tape measurements for widest width? And is it 24.75 scale?...roughly same as with asian makers 625mm scale?

    Thanks.
