  1. Hi, I was about to order the F255 when i realized I could afford the B405, but Harmony central didn't have any articles on it, so i thought I'd consult my problem with you guys. Although I'm not sure how well the b405 performs, I've read many great reviews on the F255.

    Wow... I must say I wouldn't know which one to choose. But the B405 has better wood, and more: better pickups. The shape is great too, though I would like to see the second color available before buying as sunburst isn't in my tastes at all.
