    VERY cool. Definitely dig the non-traditional hollow body color.

    Does that style bridge need a wrapped 4th string?

    You must mean "wrapped 3rd" since the 4th is always wrapped, and the answer for is yes - I always use a wrapped 3rd. Heaviest sets possible.

    It's a 175 retrofitted with a 295 tailpiece, so split the difference and I came up with the designation "275".

    Rings like a bell.
