My brother built this a few months ago. He’s pretty modest but does excellent work.
As the icon shows, it's trans red nitro on the body, a Warmoth boat neck, Broadcaster lead pup and Van Zandt mid/neck pups.
Currently fooling around w/ compensated bridge barrels (not sure it's been worth the hassle).
Yes, there IS a nickle under the spring.
Peace - Deeve
This is the current incarnation, but I'll be moving the Bigsby to the walnut topped one soon and returning the mahogany one to hardtail.

That’s cool. Jaguar bridge?
Edit: How does that behave with the Bigsby?
Yep, Jag/Jazzmaster bridge. I like Bigsbys- once you get the nut cut properly and realize it's not a locking trem, they're great. I do find the stock springs are always too short/stiff for my liking, so I invest in the $10 Reverend "soft touch" spring- it makes a lot of difference.
I've got one of them Chigsbys too. Works great and I think it was about $25.
I'm currently negotiating the purchase of this blue ice custom build baby from my finisher in chief...
My TVcaster. The best guitar I‘ve ever played.
Great to have something truly unique!
Beautiful. Looks a lot like mine but I suddenly find myself wishing for a rosewood fretboard.
Man this is causing gas, I love Bigsbys and need to get one on a Tele stat!
‘69. Factory Bigsby. Under 8lb. Came to me modded for vintage Wide Ranges and vintage jumbo refret. My desert island guitar.
Thanks to all posters. Great thread. The idea of a thinline with a Bigsby just makes me happy.
If you were in OZ, I wouldve bought that instantly.. Ive been gassing for those FSR,
Not a Bigsby, but a Figsby...
