    I buy bulk strings from Strings, Instrument Strings, Music Strings for Guitar, Bass, Mandolin, Fiddle and More which are made in the U.S.A. and to me feel a lot like GHS strings. The gauges are
    009, 011, 016, 024, 032, 042, 054, 070. It's basically a light six string set with an added 054 and 070. If you used a set of 10's I think you'd be in good shape with an 060 and 074 or 076 for the 7th and 8th.

    I spent yesterday and today completing some finishing and this afternoon got onto the assembly stage which actually starts off with a quick fret level and polish and zero fret install. I'll get some pics up on the fb page tomorrow.

    @thraxil: If you're interested in a recommendation, I put together a matched tension set last time I bought strings. 10.5, 14, 17, 26, 34, 46, 60, 80 gets you between 16 and 17lbs of tension on each string in F standard. D'addario offers all of these gauges too, so you don't need to pay for anything fancy.

    ^TomAwesome, check if you are "following" OAF, because the settings in FB are weird, and congrats those specs and the look are great, hope to see a full review from you :)

    Yeah, I made a point of following the page a long time ago to make sure I wouldn't miss pictures of my guitar, but Facebook apparently decided I didn't really want to see the page's content. Oh well, that's what this thread is for, right? I'm definitely looking forward to getting my mitts on it.

    Yeah, FB is pissing me off, because not everyone gets these updates. I think I read that this is an intention FB thing, to keep you from getting inundated with stuff. So I have to manually follow everything.
