    I've been wanting a Bigsby on one of my Telecasters,but have been reluctant to hack up the front with screw holes.Seems like ZZ's mount kit solves the problem (and BTW allows you to move the Bigsby from one Tele to another).Has anyone used this product? Thumbs up? Or down?

    I am wondering the same.
    Also.. does it day "Licensed" under the Bigsby logo?

    Well,I went ahead and ordered a pair of baseplates(because I had a couple of B5's handy) It'll take a couple of weeks to get them here and mounted.I'll post the results.One is going on one of the Teles,not sure which yet,and the other on a Les Paul Faded double-cut.
    Roth-Yes,ZZ's complete kits do come at present with a made-under-license Bigsby,but you can order the kit without the Bigsby and supply one yourself.

    I emailed them and they told me the same thing.
    I have a B5 I can put on there..
    The only thing that bothers me is the "ZZ" on the baseplate!

    Hmm, I have heard that the screw-hole pattern between the B5 and the licensed B50 is not the same (but I haven't had a B5 in my hands yet to confirm this) - better double-heck that with ZZ Sounds...
