    You can see the outline of the original pickguard that was removed. Just dont get why you'd remove it if you have that heave of a right hand and strum right over where the pickguard was located.

    By the looks of the little amount of saddle left sticking up above the bridge that guitar might be pretty old and might need a neck reset sooner than later, or it may just have a horrible neck angle.

    I was beaten to it, but Glen Hansard has a Takamine that he just molests...

    Takamine has offered to fix it for him, and give him a replacement, and so far, he has politely declined.

    He says it is the best sounding and playing guitar he has ever owned, and refuses to give it up.

    His is so bad, the hole is separated into two holes... by the top bracing!
