    So far I love the guitar. It has huge string on it - I'm guessing bigger than 11s. Only played it through a Yamaha THR10C so far but it sounds like a Gretsch. I may fiddle with the pickup heights - seems like some strings can be "dead". I think the high E actually seems kind of dead but that may be me muting it or I thought it might have got unseated in the saddle too (didn't notice that til I was at the end of my playing time). Fingers are sore today from teh big strings (I haven't played much lately but this guitar will make me want to play more).

    Pickguard or no pickguard? I think I like it.
