    This guitar has been driving me crazy for years. How the hell did you get the binding to follow that curve?

    That is stunning. My next build is already taking shape in my head.

    USACG did that for me.
    I didn't know if it was possible when I asked them and was pleasantly surprised by the the outcome.

    It seems a lot of folks here are great photographers.
    I am not one of them.

    That guitar makes me want a slice of Wonder bread. Or to play Twister.

    Here are my two.
    MIJs, Custom is a 2015, CAR is a 2004-2005.
    Both factory Bigsbys, both really nice guitars, after changing pots, switch, and pickups.

    I've always wanted either/both of those.

    Just as a footnote - you read many posts about Bigsby Installations, needing locking tuners etc, etc. Do you think they need them? I don't. When the guitar is set up correctly, they hold tune just fine.

    I was lucky to spot them and get them.
    Really nice guitars.
