    I was blown away how small and light it is. I was hoping to get some string suggestions and possibly preferred gauge. Thanks for looking!

    I have the Electromatic budget version, the headstock is finished in black. That white headstock and gold plate look really nice! A little guitar that packs a big punch. Really a unique and versatile machine. I know you will enjoy it, congrats!

    Man, that looks interesting! I may have to do some looking into this model.

    As for string suggestions, I always have just one - Thomastik Infeld Jazz Swings. They're flats, pure nickel and round core.... And they just sound right with Gretsches. I first tried them on my 5127, but now they're on almost all of my electric guitars (I still use round wound strings on my Resonator, setup for slide).

    Oh no...no I've developed G.A.S. for one of these. That is gorgeous and I am sure that little puppy sounds sweet. I agree about the flatwounds!
