What is particularly weird is that the space control bridge is placed BEFORE the Floating Sound Unit, rather than AFTER to act as a string guide to the Bigsby. The way it is currently configured means the Floating Sound Unit is utterly non-functional.

It also means that in the current configuration, the intonation is so far off that it would be literally unplayable.

Pretty cool guitar still but those three dot markers are a little strange.

Wouldn't want one on a bad day, but I am curious on the price.

You'd think, but the bridge is pretty far back from the bridge pickup and about where you'd expect relative to the f-holes. The FSU hole may be big enough to move the whole operation back to more or less intonate this way. Still, if you're not using the FSU, then it belongs in the case pocket anyway.
