Everything here to kit out a Les Paul (Gibson only, not Epiphone). Was originally gold but most of this has rubbed off revealing chrome. Some Brasso will easily remove the gold all together. Some very minor scratches, but all in all vgc. This is the real-deal-sand-cast version. Vibramate is gold, but most of it is hidden by the B7. Again, some Brasso will take it to chrome. All screws etc included. $320 (inc p&p). ($485 retail)

Working perfectly well with no issues. No velcro and some minor scratches. Don't seem to sell these new anymore, but we're $300 new at start of 2020 according to Pricespy. Therefore have priced based on this, but let me know if you think I'm off the mark. $180 (inc postage)

Selling to fund new delay pedal. The Volante has "past participle of get" under my skin, darn it!!!

I completely get that this is a lowballing thing and it's not what I want but my current financial situation (surviving for a year out of work, stuck in the U.S) and the need for the Bigsby and vibramate on my Les Paul Traditional dictates that if at any stage both get to $250, I'll buy them.
You're more than welcome to tell me to f#%k off and I completely understand.
I feel fantastic. Hey, hey, hey.

Hey, I have absolutely no intention to tell you to f##k off. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. :thumbup:

Bigsby has just sold on TM though, sorry.

Why do I wait too long for things I really want? That Bigsby would've been perfect, peeling gold and all... :bummed:
Yes, M'Lady.

You and me both. Kicking myself for missing out on a midi controller on TM that closed tonight. It went for a third of the retail price!!

The gold wasn't peeling as such. The plating is uber thin and even hand contact wears it down. A bit of elbow grease and Brasso will take it back to chrome.

Just stop it :rofl:

I've got a Greco Black Beauty with worn gold hardware that it was destined to bolt on to...

True, forget that some folk prefer gold!! If it's any consolation, I don't think it would have fitted. You'll likely need a B70, for imports.

Any pics of the Greco? Sounds cool.

That's good to know, as I had been close to ordering from Reverb. Would be a shite to get the wrong one.

I picked up the Greco for my son to play the last time I was in Japan. I think it's a '89 model, Japanese made, and I got it cheap in a second hand shop. It sounds great, with a real 50's style slight V bat-like neck. Ever since I got it I had my mind on fitting a Bigsby. Don't ask me why I didn't pull the trigger on yours. I'm just going to tell myself that The Gods prevented the transaction because it wouldn't fit :rofl:

That's mighty pretty. I'm a big fan of Greco's, even with the gold. :wink: Thinking on it some more, maybe it's the Vibramate that's not compatible with non-Gibson LP's. Crikeys, I researched all this before I bought it last year - another example of my aging CPU not retaining info. Sigh....

I've got a Bigsby B7 and Vibramate if anyone is still after one. Not gold though, just the standard colour.
