Bigsby B6 fitted. Looks like it has been with the guitar from the beginning according to 2 Gretsch specialist techs. The V cut Bigsby is correct for the period so this is odd. Was sold from a shop in 1960 called Guitar City and was just after the import restrictions were lifted so was in the first flood of incoming instruments.
