    Pete - that engine turning is SWEET. Did you do it yourself?

    I have seen it done on larger items but this looks, for lack of a better word, PROFESSIONAL! :D

    Can you give us some specifics on how it was accomplished?

    It’s done by a good friend of mine who is well known in the Telecaster space but who is not mentioned much around here.

    I can explain more in a PM if you want to know.

    I bought one of these and it just came in. Installing it was super easy. I also got the string shaft upgrade too so I don’t have to mess with those silly pegs anymore. Again, installation was so easy. Can’t wait to put the Bigsby on my Tele now!

    Oh, I read above where some had problems with the Callaham upgrades fitting into their Bigsby. I didn’t have any troubles at all. It took me maybe 5 minutes tops.
