    I bought this unbranded thinline relic off of reverb a few weeks ago.

    Here it is the day it arrived:

    Here it is now:

    Chopped Bigsby B5
    Bigsby aluminum bridge
    Walnut neck shim
    $40 GFS Filtertron with Gretsch surround
    500k volume pot
    Ugly sexy pickguard.

    Plays like a dream and sounds mean!
    Super spanky or gritty Rock n’ Roll. Definitely a streamlined machine.

    thanx for looking!

    What a beauty. I am forever a sucker for that old school looking yellow tort.

    I love "his masters voice" protecting the rig.

    Yeah, I was gonna go with black, but this was too cool. Looks trashy/sexy like a mob wife.

    I suppose it’s a good thing that this is my NGD thread and not yours, or else you’d be very disappointed.

    I don't usually like them, but the Bigsby is perfect on there. Cool axe.
