    I fixed up one that a local guitar teacher has, a Nite Fly. It was well built, but had a scratchy jack or switch to fix up. Great neck and fingerboard, though totally synthetic. And that horn is a problem if trying to sit with it. Sounds like @Mike_LA figured out a fix for that. 20190815_110748.jpg

    I still have an H/S/S Nite Fly with the piezo. It was set up when I bought it for Ernie Ball .10/.46s. It is an excellent guitar in every way. My only complaint is that the humbucker on the bridge has a little too much midrange bite. The thought of replacing it with a Gibson 490T or a PAF type has crossed my mind several times, but have held off.

    It's an interesting guitar but I could never get past the way it looked.

    I liked them quite a bit years ago. I recently decided to look into them and then I saw the prices they’re listing for. Feel like you used to be able to get a basic USA Nitefly for around 700-800 used not that long ago. They’re listed for twice that on Reverb with the fancier Flys much more.

    I don’t want one that badly. I seem to recall playing an import one at some point that was pretty good. Maybe that’s worth a look again.
