    Very nice! Congratulations!

    I love those Wilkinson trems too! I had one on an ex guitar and it could take abuse and still stay in tune.

    I haytchu... Now I have something new to GAS for. I have been thinking of a single humbucker guitar because on one of my current guitars, I tend to stay on the bridge especially that it has a parallel mode. It gives me enough tone options for what I play.

    Now... On to reverb I go...

    I’m really enjoying this Wilkinson trem. Maybe my all time favorite. The soft spring on the Bigsby on my Rev Rick Vito is pretty cool to.

    Funny looking geetar but I approve!

    As kids today say about the clutch pedal when they see a manual transmission car, what the third knob for?
    OK PK I know this one!
    Reverend has bass & treble knobs?

    Nice looking guitar; congrats!

    Yes - Reverends have a regular tone pot to roll off treble and a bass contour as well.

    Ahhhh, now that one I like a lot and my wife likes it too!
    Shopping for my 60th birthday guitar there was one of these in some kind of green at a GC my wife came to with me, and she really pushed me to buy it.
    But it was over my budget and I'd already spent some of my $600 on a Tele neck plus I forget what else, so I went with a cool deco D'Angelico which I subsequently returned and bought another D'Angelico.

    Even got the stair step tuners and the skyscraper thing, but that wasn't the goal, just icing on two very different cakes.
    I may still end up owning one of those one day!
