    These posts are great! Goes to show, the only guitar you can't put a Bigsby on, is one that already has one installed. Even a Strat! :eek::cool: (I'm referring to post #13, but after looking at it again, I'm not sure what that guitar is... ??)

    Not a Bigsby but but I love the trem on this guitar. It's just so smooth and responsive.

    CIJ TL52TX with factory Bigsby. This one booted all my other guitars except her fancy sister there next to her. Pickups replaced with Keystones, fingers crossed for a Mastery bridge for Christmas.

    The G6196TSP-2G just arrived and has taken precedence over the 3 other Bigsby'd guitars in the studio. Of course I had to celebrate by letting it pose among Seoul's many ginkos.

    Compton stainless steel bridge going on soon to perfect the tonal balance and sustain, but even without it the fat 1" spring is making the B6's wobbles an absolute delight :D

    I'll play. This is my 1954 Gibson ES-295. Obviously it is in "player's" condition, but it plays great and sounds great. One day, I would like to get a shiny gold Bigsby and more appropriate gold roller bridge for it. For now, this is the way it looks.

    That guitar is gorgeous. Your photo inspired me to an outside shot. I need to work on my composition a bit, but cloudy day lighting is pretty great.

    Beautiful 6120 you've got there, and look at that delicate flame in the maple top! I agree that the way light gets diffused under cloudy skies can certainly help us with more affordable cameras, and the Autumn colors certainly help with presentation...Especially with Gretsch orange!

    One more from us for good measure...I'm noticing more and more how that 1" spring really makes the arm sit high! Here's one more from the studio rooftop...reflections of other buildings really working against me, but the golden B6 never looked more glorious.
