    Just checkin' in to see if there was any Bigsby Palm Pedal ownership interest out there? I'll be 75 this January (Wow, 3/4 of a century) and my health's been going downhill a little and I'm going to have to start "thinning the herd" as it were. I have a bunch of BPP equipped guitars and most of 'em are going up for sale. They're mostly Epiphones with a couple of other brands thrown in for good measure... All of the four knob guitars have been rewired with only a master volume and tone control and the bottom two knobs are a phase switch in front and a coil tap in the rear.... Here's a list of what's going on the block... Remember, all are equipped with the BPP and special wiring as well as very easy action and great tone... Here's what I have. If you're interested I can post the pictures on here or send you an email... Here's what's going now..........JH

    2003 Gibson "Raw Power Series" SG... This one is all maple with a maple fretboard... chrome hardware * BPP

    2012 Epiphone 1962 reissue Sheraton with the small humbuckers and the Gibson shaped headstock. Red finish with gold hardware and the BPP plus a HipShot D-tuner on the headstock. Bridge pup is a DiMarzio mini bucker as the stock pup couldn't be tapped but it's included and will be in the neck compartment....This guitar also has an access plate on the back to easily get at the controls and wiring...

    Epiphone Les Paul, silver sparkle finish on top with mahogany on back and sides. Gibson reissue PAF pickup in neck slot and a "Dirty Fingers" at the bridge, Gibson tulip tuners....

    Epiphone Les Paul, cherry sunburst finish with stock pups, this is an older MIK model with very good sound and action as all these guitars are....

    2000 Epiphone Casino, natural finish, rewired with just one volume and tone, phase switch or tap, the bottom two knobs are still in the guitar....

    Ibanez Artcore AS-83, light sunburst finish with older style BPP frame and access plate added on the back for easy access to wiring and controls....

    Remember all these guitars have the BPP B and G bender levers to raise each of those strings a whole tone or whatever you note(s) you want to tune them to........ If you're interested or curious just send me a PM or email and I'll post a picture on this thread. All of these guitars have been "gigged" with and are veterans of the bandstand and other than a nick or two have no defects.........JH in Va.

    Jerry,

    I am sorry to hear about your declining health. If I didn't already have more guitars than I should, I would jump on this--especially that casino. Are you planning on selling any of your palm pedals separately? I have a few bigsby equipped guitars that I would love to have palm pedals for. Can the palm pedals be attached to any bigsby?

    awe shuck. Best of luck with your health. I wish I could give one of those a good home. I love the Bigsby PP benders. Lovely. I'd be all over one of those Epis if I had the getus. Sadly, my own health issues means I have to watch what I spend for a while.

    Cheers,
    kp
