Yeah, I can attenuate it a little messing with the tone knobs, but even at the optimal settings, the overtones are loud. In fact, you can hear it when it's not plugged in, and it does it regardless of which amp I use. I'm going to try lighter strings (I'm using fat ernie balls now and will try d'addario 11's or 10's) to see if that helps. Otherwise, I'll just keep notching it out till I get a nicer guitar. It's a decent guitar, but there are nicer out there I'd rather have. Thanks for your feedback with this.
