    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. [​IMG]

    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.

    Beautiful. Looks a lot like mine but I suddenly find myself wishing for a rosewood fretboard.

    Thanks to all posters. Great thread. The idea of a thinline with a Bigsby just makes me happy.
