That's the right one IMO!!

Correct, it should have the small triangular plate with three screws + the strap button hole, not the trapezoid plate with four screws and strap button slot.

Right here's the one I would go for:

Even though it originally may have come with a gold plated Bigsby, I think aluminum looks more "right" on these. Or, even better, get this one and ask voodooholly how to fake anodize it.

– Afire

Ahhh crap!!! Right on Afire and Voodoo! I completely forgot about the different hinge plates on these.For some reason I was thinking the solid,non V cut Bigsby had the four hole plates only.
