Wanted: A Fly Deluxe S2 HSS
« on: January 01, 2018, 02:30:24 PM »
Hey I've got my eye out for a USA Fly with HSS pups (not the NiteFly).  I understand they made them sometime around 2000-2002 'pre refined', and called them the 'Single 2' or 'S2' model.  If anyone has one, or knows of one for sale, please let me know, thanks!

Yes, exactly like that.  I was going to make an offer (I think the price is way high) but the business will not ship to me in Canada so there's not much point.  I'm visiting the states in February, so if I haven't found anything by then I might see if I can arrange a US only sale.

Gotcha. FWIW, I think I recall reading elsewhere on this forum that some HSS owners were somewhat underwhelmed with it compared to the Nitefly (which you obviously own). I’d be curious to hear how they compare.

Also, I’m near NYC, so PM me if you decide to go for this listing and need help sorting out shipping to Canada.

That's a really kind offer, thank you!  But if I go down that road there's no stopping me haha.  I saw that 1993 hardtail in Maine Craigslist for $750.  I tried hard to buy it from the guy but again he didn't want to ship it, even if I paid in advance.  I guess with some patience something will come along.

I'm disappointed to hear someone didn't like the HSS sounds.  I think the NiteFlys sound great (I'm playing around with some different pickups) but the Flys have some great advantages (weight and the ability to 'block' the trem mid-song if a string breaks).
