Modifications

This has a B-6 Bigsby Tailpiece fitted, but I also still have THE original chrome `G` cutout Tailpiece. The hinge plate, or baseplate of the Bigsby unit, has been carefully modified to use the same screw holes as the original `Cutout` tailpiece.

It’s doubtful that the nut on this Annie is brass, unless it’s been modified from it’s original plastic nut.

Thanks for pointing that out, my mind must`ve been on the 6120 on that one,….. corrected now
