Big, very big, yes. Still plays smoothly even on rather thin strings. Use Dunlop 308 at all string sizes from 09-42 to 12-50 Flat Wound. The heights are a bit subdued, the sound overall full, round, balanced. Some would say jazz, but that would not be enough. Makes a good impression in the rock context as well. Plus: lies well in the hand and is also ideal for fast playing. The surface is initially slightly rough (very pleasant, good grip), becomes completely smooth over time (still comfortable). Overall, lasts a long time.
