  1. Thanks for the pix, Sorry I didn't get to make it for those last couple shows. I missed seeing all my friends and the band.
  2. Thanks, this model in a 12 string (George) was always my favorite and I wondered for 5 decades how I could get this model in a 6 string. Now I have it with all the options I would pick like the checker double bound body, bound neck, Toaster Pickups, Vintage "Clear" truss cover, bound sound hole and more. The only thing I was told that this did not come with the vintage silver case was that would drive up the cost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF does that mean? The vintage case is $300, so the upgrade might be $100. After you spend $3400 for the guitar, what the hell is another $100 for a vintage case???? Don't get me wrong, the case that came with it is very nice and fits the guitar better than the vintage silver cases, but for the price, they could have easily provided both cases!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Here is a B3 made for thin hollow body and semihollow body electric guitars like the Epi Casino and Gretsch Duo Jet. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-USA-Bigsby-B3-Tremolo-Vibrato-Bridge-Archtop-Guitar-Aluminum-TP-3630-001/363078987210?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160323102634%26meid%3Dbbca17238091415b889fc62a387774fe%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D233541807289%26itm%3D363078987210%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DDefaultOrganic%26brand%3DBigsby&_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1
  7. I just like the Bigsby with the V cutout the best and all of that model seem to say "Gretsch by Bigsby". That's the Bigsby that is on my 1964 Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman that is double cut and dark walnut stain like George Harrison's.
  8. Thanks, does your bigsby on the EPI say "Gretsch by Bigsby" on it?
  9. I'm looking for a Bigsby that will fit a Gibson LP and an EPI Casino. I want the one that has the V cutout and made in America. I want Chrome color (Aluminum) that is model B3C, but if I remember right there are 2. One has a pointed end for wider bodies and the other a cut off end for thin body guitars. Check out this B3C and let me know if this will work on both the Casino and LP. I'll most likely get a "Vibramate" adapter so I don't have to drill any holes. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bigsby-Gretsch-B3C-Tremolo-Vibrato-Tailpiece-Chrome-0060134100-USA-Brand-New/233541807289?_trkparms=aid%3D1110009%26algo%3DSPLICE.COMPLISTINGS%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D228186%26meid%3Dbb3b66820b4a4fcda0cdd8c937f372c1%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D303649824353%26itm%3D233541807289%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DItemStripV101WithBbeV1Filter%26brand%3DBigsby&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219
