That guitar will come to life with a nice set of flatwound electric guitar strings and a low wattage (15-20 Watt) all tube amp! I'm waiting for the new improved (better spring reverb tank) Monoprice 15 Watt tube amps to come back in stock.

I am sure nickel plated steel will let you put the screws (nearly?) all the way down.
Thanks, Jon. It doesnít bother me too much at all but I might just do that. Not overly concerned, either, with the acoustic-only sound ó I mostly just want to use it at gigs and get a good sound out of it. Iíve certainly never seen a set of pickups needing to be in such a wacky arrangement!

I'll definitely try that when I get a chance, LK!
