  1. Hi Rusty, I love the Firefly too. I haven't noticed any issues with the action and I've not turned over the bridge. I was able to slide two credit cards under all the strings at the 12th fret with no problem. You might want to contact Dale and Phyllis at Magic Fluke Co. They're very responsive and helpful, giving me an assist with two different instruments I've owned. will get you to them. Good luck! Rick

    Hi Rick, I have a Firefly, too, like you played on Cinnamon Girl, and I like it a lot. A coupleof things about it I'm not to sure about and I wondered if you could give me your thoughts. Do you take the stress off the drum by turning over the the bridge? I didn't for some time, and in fact i didn't play it for a little while at this time and I now wonder if the skin on the drum has stretched a little because the action is a lot closer than I remember. It may just be that my memory is not what it was. perhaps you could measure the action height at the 12th fret for me so i can get an idea if mine is still OK. Rough enough is good enough. As a point of reference I can just slide two credit cards under the G string on TOP of the frets at the 12th fret. Not really a luthiers way of doing it I suspect, but I just want a rough check.
    If you cannot check it don't fret, I am just wondering.. Thanks
