Which Nitefly is it ?

Post by tcmm »

Hey Guys.
My dealer offers me a Nightfly with the Serial Number 97156.
From the serial number i think the guitar is from 1997.
Is it a Nitefly 1,2,3 or 4 ?

Hi @tcmm—welcome!

There is a history document and manual for this instrument here—it is a NiteFly NFV2.

Hi @tcmm—yours is the second one on the top of the first page—NFV2 (no M—I’ve corrected my earlier post):

The passive piezo system in that NiteFly does not require a battery and was originally paired with a NiteMix.
