I'm a "pinkie planter" myself when fingerpicking. When flatpicking I rest the heel of my hand on the bridge, or just strum freely from the wrist and elbow.

Maybe just play the L13 for a while and see if you actually get a polished spot. Then think about covering it with a pick guard later - if the need actually arises. Late thought - isn't the top of the Lucky 13 gloss anyway? The neck is satin, but the rest of the body is glossy, IIRC. I just looked at the Blackbird web site, and cannot tell for sure if the top is glossy.

One more guitar sold this week, so I'm getting closer to pulling the trigger on an order. You got the one I was watching at Ted's place.
