Ok everyone! First off... let me send out a BIG THANKS to all those who posted offering suggestions. This forum never ceases to amaze me in the helpfulness and passion of its members.
I looked at ALL the suggestions posted.
-All mounting rings, screws, pot mounts, pickguards, bigsby parts were secure. There were no vibrations emanating from these spots.
-The Compton bridge was previously intonated properly and still is after the new setup.
-Bigsby placement. Even though the hinge is flush with the edge of the guitar, the felt pads underneath the spring and contact points are securely connected to the top of the guitar, so no vibrations there.
-There were no ghost/sympathetic vibrations behind the bridge.
-The neck and its frets are all setup properly.
We figured out the problem. And I can't believe it. It was the Dynasonic magnets.
I mean, I knew they were powerful, but I didn't know THAT powerful. The magnets were too high and close to the strings. They were causing the strings to vibrate far too wide and then dampen quickly. The luthier has never had experience with Dynasonics before, he was surprised too. He backed off the magnet heights. The guitar plays and sings beautifully now. Its perfect. I don't know if I will play any other of my solid bodies now! ha.
Thanks again. I will post fotos later.
