The V-cutout Bigsby has been added recently, along with a Proteus Aluminium Bar Bridge, sounds and plays great.

Unusual factory features

Later in the '59 production Annies I believe as it has both the PAF Filtertron, the light trestle bracing and the 2 1/2" deep body. Nothing unusual, that's just what this batch had I guess.

Bought it knowing it would need a neck re-set - a certain Gretsch book author kindly helped find a luthier who could do the re-set without mucking up the original paint job - and it worked out very nicely indeed, thanks man!
