    Some people pay a premium to have pick marks and scratches on their guitars.

    Crappie fishing.
    I picked without however I like it either way. Great color though so I probably wouldn't hide it with a PG.

    Not a knock on Fireflies, but since it's not a high end guitar, I'd leave it off as any scratches are really not going to take away from the value and you get max gold. If you personally don't want it scratched and value is not in the equation, you could take it off and after a few sessions, take a good look and see if you're making any marks which will depend on your style. Personally, I can bang away and not leave any pick marks. I've had an Ovation for about 40 years that has no pick guard and it has no scratches. From anything.
