After a long while, I have this guitar just where I want it and it plays like a dream. It started out as a used Squier CV thinline, now has: Warmoth 1-11/16ths modern neck Fender Noiseless pickups Bigsby B5 on a Vibramate mount straplocks Tronical tuners. The Squier neck was pretty good, but someone had leveled the frets down too much and this Warmoth bird-seye neck is amazing. The noiseless pickups are because I play in theaters and everything has to be dead quiet. The Tronical tuners are for quick changes into alternate tunings when we are covering songs which need them. Weighs in at 6-1/2 lbs. The last detail was the Bigsby; it was far less responsive than the B7 on my Gretsch, and I was disappointed. What I didn't realize is that the strings were binding, which some pencil-graphite solved. It is smooth as water now and sounds great. I'll be gigging it on June 1st with my Spaghetti Western band. Really looking forward to it.
