Orig owner put the blackguard on and I like it. Great axe! Gotta be strung with 8s as they are thin. Narrow tall frets and 9 1/2” radius is something else. Dainty even but I love it. I love being challenged to play better and up my left hand game when I get a different axe. Bought a Gretsch G5220 a while back and fell in love with the chambered body. It’s got a thick neck which is a different type of challenge. Finally decided to add a thinline to the stable. Stock except the ‘guard and switch. Love it! Just couldn’t pull the trigger on one of those blah natural brown classic vibes. Sherwood gold is good. My fave gold of the three. I’ll get a pic of them up later. These were before I shifted the saddles left a bit. Lines up great now. Imagine my surprise when that ashtray came tumbling out of the box. Nice surprise.
