Modifications

I removed the original and had a new bridge and support piece built by Ron Thorn using an readily available roller TOM type bridge mounted on a large piece of reinforced wood. Intonates perfectly and the guitar stays in tune (with Bigsby use) so much better now.

Unusual factory features

The bar bridge screwed (barely) into a small piece of rosewood is a poor excuse for a bridge. The original cardboard case is also a piece of junk; I always use a decent case or gig bag when taking it out.
