    Is that your 'lil '59er Flick? Mine will be similar, but will "correct" something that always bugs me about those smaller scale guitars...the body shape. I have a little collection of the small, 3/4 size LP knockoffs (none as nice as the one you show), and every one has a body with a shape that's not quite right. Here is what mine will look like, although it will be a flametop:

    That's more like it!

    I see you got the body shape correct too. And originally, I had planned on putting in two mini-humbuckers like you did, but decided to go with just a single full size for this first one.

    As a follow-up, what gauge string would you use, considering the extra tension? 9's?


    FWIW, on my octave guitars, which are tuned up a full octave, I use 8's.
