Any Bigsby freaks here?

This last year was great year for me. I've always thought bigsby's were cool and the gang but
didn't reckon I could use one.

Man was I wrong.

Its usage is all about subtlety and using it for shimmer and light effect.

You don't just grab it and snatch it like a fumbling high school kid in the back seat with your
prom date.

Started with the LP and it spread to the 2 V's.

Love me some bigsby. I have a couple guitars with it and I am modifying another. As you said, lot of it is about subtlety.

Here's two of mine with Bigsbys. The first one is a 1999 Natural Guild Starfire III and the second one is a 2000 Guild x-160 Rockabilly in Tennessee Orange
