I'm thinking black, too, but I'm getting black coils for my Septor, which is black and has an ebony fb, so I think I might want to get red coils just so it differs from that.

The red coils look bad ass, I think. I would go with the red. But keep in mind, I'm the one who thinks the Oceanburst's top looks sexy. Just to forewarn you, hahaha.

It's not too long, we just don't want to deal with different fret spacing and tone from all of our other guitars.

A .007" might work. The ol' string tension calculator gives it a tension of 14.15 pounds, which is a little stiff, but manageable.

No word yet but Kurt shipped mine in the tweed case so it has to be big enough. I will let everyone know exactly how well it fits when I get mine.

this probly doesnt go here but i dont really know where to put it. well its caused by my intrepid among other guitars so i guess it could go here. does anyone else get a itchy ass rash when they play? like right on the palm mute part of my picking hand. whenever i play for long periods of time it will bubble a little like poison ivy and itch like hell and then i scratch it and this clear shit comes out and my hand burns but i play anyway and it gets worse. mostly when im sweating. ive been playing since 1998 and this shit didnt start happening until i was in iraq this last summer. and now it comes and goes. i dont mind being ....ed up by iraq as long as it doesnt .... with my guitar playing.

Allergies can develop from overexposure to specific metals, woods, and conditions. My grandfather cannot work with Wenge or Padouk because he developed an allergy to the woods, while Mike Sherman and Ulrich Teuffel are two guitar builders who have developed allergies to synthetic materials used in guitars.

At the very least I'd get it checked out by a doctor.
