The neck is more comfortable for my poor old arthritic hands. 1st time I ever paid over $1k for a guitar, second time I ever spent over $500 for a guitar. They did give me a good deal though.

The description says Bigsby B6GW, but that isn’t a choice here.
Nut type seems to have been Unglued. When I first installed and tightened the low E string, the nut stood on end, and then flew across the room.
It has since been glued down. Is that a mod?
