    8-12-20w-30 ~63lbs. Total tension.

    Re: just starting out - what are my string options?

    I wanted to add - I too have a Monterey archhtop ('57). It is tuned OM/Irish tuning - GDAE.

    With a smaller control plate, I'd imagine the factory installed 3-way switch is smaller. The body cavity may need to be routed...

    With the perceived success of the last rollout, if I were a guitar manufacturer I'd reseach the possibility of making tenors.
