- Compensated Bigsby
- Bigsby B-3
Custom built tailpiece (by previous owner, a relative) - he didn't like the Bigsby (I found the original fixed arm sawed off in the case pocket!). The tailpiece was replaced with a new B3 that I roughed up and relic'd. I hope to find a vintage B3 for it.
Filled-in holes from the original Melita posts under the Bigsby bridge.
Poor neck reset (done in 1964) will be re-done eventually. Also needs a refret.
- Unusual factory features
Original late 1953 script headstock logo, Dynasonics, smooth knobs.
Truss rod nut uses drum wrench (square head). Previous owner made a special tool/adaptor so a regular allen wrench could be used if a drum wrench was not available.
