Modifications

I have added a Compton Compensated Brass Bridge in the correct radius. I have replace the poorly plated gold Bigsby B6 with a new one, simply for appearance sake. I have replaced the standard 7.5" wire Chet Atkins tremolo arm with a longer 9.5" wire Chet Atkins Arm.

I am leveling the 6th and 14th fret.

Unusual factory features

The radius of the bar bridge did not match the radius of the fretboard. I thought all G6122-1959 guitars had a 12" fretboard radius. This one has a 9.5" fretboard radius.

The 6th and 14th frets are too high.
