    Uhhh...

    The lever swings, right? And it doesn't look too difficult hitting that switch even where it's positioned now in the photos.

    But were these sold with actual Bigsby off the shelf?

    This new world of ours frightens me, and Fender, especially so.

    Squier did sell a version of the Cabronita Tele with a bigsby installed. It had a filtertron neck pickup and a tele single coil bridge pickup.
    That is the one I have. It's great!!

    Personally I rarely switch pickups mid-song, but I do use the bar a lot. YMMV

    NGD. Just finished this. Do Humbucker pickups qualify as Cabronesque? IMG_0724.JPG

    So, how is the setup on yours?

    Are you finding this really well sorted out, as it is?

    The setup is crap, the stock bridge is crap, the sustain is crap. I couldn't make it work for me, and I sent it on it's way.

    Yeah.

    I wish I had the creative skills to properly applaud this post.

    It's that switch position which screwed up your sustain.
