Looks great! Thanks for all the explanations.
Does DR make the Legends in short scale?
They do indeed! Only one set offered, I believe. To put them on a Guild with a harp bridge, you typically have to trim the silks at the headstock by 0.5-1" to get them to clear the nut, but that's a quick and easy task with a razor or xacto knife. I would describe the tension as medium. They're super silky smooth to the touch and very shiny (almost hard to see the windings). The tone is definitely old school and thumpy. I liked the Legends on my red '70 but prefer the Maximas there. That said, the Legends sound totally killer on the sunburst '67.
Here's a link to the short scale Legends:
