I know a number of folks here have bought and liked the Firefly 335 and Grote 335 guitars. I had looked at the Grote versions last week, and I got an email from Amazon today that the satin red and satin green humbucker versions are on sale for $151.20 for prime members. I had some Amazon credit, so the green one is on its way to me. Thought I'd share in case anyone else had been looking at them.

I took my new Angel Lopez solid body nylon-string to my guitar tech last week for a set-up. Hadn't seen him in a while, and sometimes I think he's permanently out of it from what he smoked in the sixties. Anyway, he's all excited and wants to show me an awesome guitar he got a couple years ago. He pulls out an Epiphone case and opens it to a beautiful Grote sunburst 335-style. I laughed, and said, "Mark....I SOLD that to you two years ago!"......He said, "OK!....so you're the one."
I had bought the sunburst, when I really wanted the cherry-red. (they were out) Mark loved the sunburst, but by then Amazon was out of stock again. I told him if I could get the red one soon, I'd sell him the sunburst. Sure enough, about two weeks later, the red was available, and I ordered it. Mark then bought the sunburst from me, and (I guess) immediately forgot me.
He's a great tech, though......and his prices are also still reminiscent of the sixties. :)
