My 2 cents -I recognize there are some limitations to using a Les Paul as it won’t be a long throw. Or it’s not as “good” a match as with a Tele. But I’m feeling tempted nonetheless.
???I didn't like the fact that you had to stand up and 'hump' the big allen key-like lever and you could not use it sitting down.
Sorry, I missed this.I sent it to a guy in the New England area (who has since passed, I think his son or SIL may still do them)
Thanks! I couldn't remember.Sorry, I missed this.
That's a B&W, and Bill's son has a page on Facebook - he's doing them now. from what I've seen, the general idea is somewhat like a current Glaser.
The Gibson Music City Jr mechanism is made by Glaser but the strap peg and upper lever is more like an Evans or Parsons, it has a center bellcrank under the pickguard, and a stiff wire assembly moves the saddle/finger (which, like my Strat's Glaser, can be converted to a G bender).
Also - what 's "SIL" mean?
Happy to help! It's a nice mechanism - I've played a few.Thanks! I couldn't remember.
