TBH I'm not a fan of a Bigsby on a LP, the '50s profile neck nor even that particular colour/burst pattern. Interesting history behind the original, though.


I liked the bit where the original owner was asked, when he placed his special order, whether he wanted the 'old-style' cherry-red finish or the 'new' more orangey finish to the 'burst!
