I love the staple neck pickup in my BBR5. I'd say give it a shot.

Yes! That with a Bigsby would be my ideal guitar.

I’m not going to mess with this guitar at this stage- it’s great as is.

Now that the PotC LP has sold, I agree.

There's a bridge called a bowtie bridge which sits on the surface of the guitar for use with a bigsby. They were used on original goldtops that were Bigsby equipped. Gilmour's famous goldtop used on the solo of Another Brick has one.

Ah yes, thanks, I did know about the bowtie. Assumed there might be a more “modern” solution.

I think the best solution would be like a lightening bridge or similar. I have a cool brass saddled alloy wrap tail that would be ideal to convert for Bigsby use on a wrap style guitar.

murky, I'll get your bridge to you next string change. Sorry. :o :cry:

Yeah, mine too. That’s what my special wants to be when it grows up.

Tonepros has locking studs too- they’d hold the bridge in place quite nicely.

I have the same gat, and love it, where did you get yours from? What do you play it through?
