    I wouldn't NOT buy one because it has a Bigsby but I don't believe I'd want it to be my only Tele.

    Just make sure you like the look and feel of the Bigsby before you take the plunge....pun intended. I recently built this guitar for someone who liked the idea of a Bigsby on a Tele without actually having played one. He has had trouble getting used to it. Likes the guitar a lot but doesn't know how to make it work for his playing style. Frankentele.jpg

    I think you invented a new kind of Tele. I dig it.

    First admission: I have Bigsbys on two guitars but not on a Tele, yet.
    I like them a lot and so a Tele with one is in the planning stages.
