Well, I played it a bunch and I like most of it, however I really prefer the feel of a non-tension bar Bigsby (see post 4), I prefer 9.5“ radius to the 12” (though that’s not a boggy) and the neck is a tad wider than I usually like. Lovely tone. Makes me want a Jet. We’ll see if get used to these minor things. If not, back on the block it goes (poor thing).

Congrats Bob I wanted to add that since owned both the SS and the C Melody which runs a B-11 I had no problem with the break angle. You would think not so. Maybe this was the difference

Uh oh. Does this mean I have to, again, convince myself I don’t want it?

Nonsense. You know you want it. Actually, I may love it tomorrow, who knows.
