gretsch bigsby B6C on a g5120 ???

1

I'm replacing the B60 on my 5120. Is the B6c with the V cut out the same size ?

Yes. I did it with my 5420. Change out hinges (easy!) to avoid drilling new holes. Look here: http://gretschpages.com/for...

Thank you, l was concerned about not wanting to drill new holes, and having open holes. Bigsby should offer the right hinge option, but they unfortunately don't...

Great looking Gretsch. Is it a vintage B6C?

I went ahead and drilled.

Are there any holes showing from the other hinge ? I can't tell

ChimingBell, No. It's new.

Lou, The holes are completely covered. They are not far from the other holes and the big center hole is the same. It may be best to use the hinge from the other one if it fits. I never thought of doing that.

As long as no holes show I'll keep the new hinge on. It looks better, and l won't have to do surgery. Thank you...
