Why the Bigsby Dave? :o I've never understood the appeal of those things, & they add a fair bit of extra weight too.

Hi Mike, I bought this one a lot on looks and the Bacchus reputation. I think it looks great with the bigsby - sort of more retro. I must admit I don't use whammy bars much anyway but we'll see when it arrives. :D

Mike, you got me thinking about the bigsby but the concensus seems to be that it improves the tone as well as looking really cool.

Each to their own Dave - we have very different tastes in guitars! Personally I think they ruin the clean, simple lines of a Tele.

I have a Bigsby on my 330, & it seems much less use than a Strat trem - less range, awkward to use, tuning problems etc. But then I'm not a trem fan at all, they're screwed down on my Strats, so I'm biased, as usual.
