      I have a beautiful Firefly in excellent condition that I’m thinking about selling/trading and wanted to list here to see if there is any interest. I’ve recently acquired 2 Santa Cruz guitars… this Firefly and a 1929 OO customized with Beeswing Mahogany. I play quite a bit live so I’ve to go ahead and keep the OO and see if I can trade this Firefly for a bigger body SCGC guitar (open to any larger scale options).  Heres is the info on my firefly with some pictures, sale value 12k, trade value 13.5k.

      What a beauty!

      Lots o’ SCGC guitars! But never ask which is my fav

      Recently found out through communication with SCGC and Dream guitars that this is in fact Tier 2 Brazilian rosewood back and sides. I had previous email confirmation that it was Tier 1 cut in the 1930’s, but it was a mistake.

      new replacement value per SCGC is $18,175.

      I’m dropping my sale price to 10.5k and trade value to 12k.

      Good lord that’s pretty, and I’d be happy to consider a trade.  But…
      My 20 year old player’s grade mahogany dreadnought is nowhere near the value of that little firefly.  And I do not have the cash to make up the difference.

      Good luck!

      Thanks Daniel!

      Would definitely be interested in a trade deal for a players grade dread, would just need the cash to make up the difference 🙂

      Did a little fingerpicking on the Firefly tonight and man is it boomy! Super sensitive to even the slightest touch.
