    Default Feels like new

    Got this little guy back from Etienne Van Hove yesterday. He did a full set up. Hard to put down now.

    I think Etienne put D'addarios on it.
    He used loop ends and then re-used the balls from the pervious set. I told him it would have been OK to buy electric guitar strings,

    There have been a couple mods:
    - New pickguard and pickup placement. (I may go back to the old one.)
    - I bought and installed a new bridge from Andrew Jerman with Loar spacing. (May go back to equidistant spacing.)

    It is a very resonant piece of wood. I don't need to amplify it to practice, though I like to.
