I searched and only found a few threads that mentioned it. I want it not only because it's cheaper than the more aesthetic-inclined models, but because it's less flashy as well. I'm wondering specifically about the unplugged volume- how is it? I'd be playing it unplugged. And to make the tone chunky bright- think Violent Femmes-style tones- would I HAVE to play pickstyle? Or should I just get strings that have more focused treble or what? THANKS!
