    Thank you.

    The vibrola is a weird contraption. Very crude really compared to eg a Jazzmaster or Strat and it is actually quite stiff.
    This one stays in tune perfectly but it only offfers a general light trem effect. It’s nice on chord work but a little clumsy on leads. The tailpiece looks so cool I don’t care. I just need to put some tape on the
    Thread to keep it in place.

    It was a Gibson SJ200 (as on the Nashville Skyline sleeve) I lusted after in a glass case in Selmers, but also the big shiny jazz boxes. But looking at your pics instantly took me back there so SGs must have made an impression.

    I never got an SJ200, nearest thing to a shiny jazz box is my beaten up but loved ES125, and a couple of years ago I thought I shouldn't go through life without owning a Les Paul, which I haven't really bonded with but it stops me wanting another one. That's about all from me on Gibsons!

    Nice and thanks for sharing.
    Would like a big box Gibson from the 50s but I can’t justify it for my band and playing.

    Worth playing some Les pauls.... mane beat not you might find one you really like and it’ll it’ll have a 5k tag.

    You can keep your arm in place with a longer bolt and nyloc locking nut underneath.
    No divebombs or you'll mash it into the guitar.
    Does it have a nut of any description underneath? I think it should.

    There aren't too many mechanical things one can fix with tape...but have at it!
