its an ibanez cam based trem - and with the Steinberger tuners (and a good nut) no locking nut needed.

open to offers..... :thumbup:

Thats pretty darn rad.

After a fair bit of research I think its gonna be either an epi sheraton that I dont mind altering to fit a bigsby, a guild/dearmond starfire or possibly a gretsch. I have a lead on an older gretsch that might work out but will have to wait and see.

Thats a fairly wide variety of guitar tones you have listed there. Ive not played an Epi Sheraton but have had a 6119 terada made Gretsch, and currently have a 73 guild Starfire IV and a Gretsch Streamliner with a P90 in the neck. I dont know what era Guild you are looking at but the new ones are made in Indonesia (very well finished tbh), the same factory as makes the Streamliner series. Anyway more to the point: My Guild and my streamliner are completely different playing guitars, the Gretsch has a much more percussive feel to it being a hollowbody. The guild is probably a more versatile guitar but what style of music do you play ? If you were in Nelson I would invite you round for a sesh so you can try for yourself. But since you are in Akd and probably riddled with Covid maybe not !

Thanks mate
I play surf/spaghetti western/spy etc.
Good run down. Sounds like you've got some nice gear.
I've actually settled on a dearmond starfire. I think the description of their humbuckers (clear, bright and articulate) suits my sound more than say the darkeness of a PAF or bite of a filtertron.
