    There's some nice flame on the neck, more than what it looks like in the picture, but it's hard to capture with the camera.

    Sweet! I'm envious - wanting something with a bigsby. I love my standard Squire Cab. Enjoy yours!

    Levers in the way, of an otherwise great guitar, IMO.

    I like the lever. When you pull that lever, magical things happen.

    Magical things happen when you switch to that neck pup, but only if you can get to the switch.

    I agree that the switch placement could be better, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me.

    Ergonomics is everything. Less is not more,( I checked) but more is only more if it is user friendly.

    Ok. You're right. My new guitar sucks. I guess I'll just burn it.

    Oh wait, I forgot, you don't have to play it. I guess I can keep it after all.

    But if you don't burn it, you will never know how good it smells.

    I grew up with my dads 1960's Casino with a Bigsby. I always loved it. Where there is a will there is a way . Enjoy It !

    That's what it all boils down to. Personal preference. Do I think the lever is in the way of the knob and switch? Actually, yes. However, I can still sneak my pinkie in there and get to them, or just knock the arm out of the way while I'm reaching for them, and I like the Bigsby enough that it isn't really gonna bother me that much.

    Happy NGD. I bought a non bigsby version recently and really like it.
