It really is gorgeous isn't it.

Can I ask what gauge strings you have on it, given the high res pic from the side, it might help me to discern what diff gauges will be like. I've been heavy since 2007. I'm thinking of getting my second stick next year and a gold railboard at that.

Hi Stickrad,
Sure. I'm using medium gauge strings. When I first received this gem, there was a buzz on the deepest bass string. Thanks to this forum I learned this is common among railboard recipients. Thanks to posts by Greg and a few others, getting rid of that buzz was an easy tweak.

Also, I went for the extra $300.00 for the smooth, hard plasma coating on the fretboard rather than the textured surface. I am playing through a Zoom G1Xon effects box, a Fishman Loudbox Artist amp, and I plan on using a Digitech Jamman Solo looper.
8-)

Hope this helps.

Cheers
Harry
