    You could forge one yourself for way less than that.:D

    I have to admit I did pay about that much for a Duane Eddy handle herr in The Netherlands. Worth it though!

    I can get the duane eddy one for you guys for $55. (the other one snaps at the base, I've had 3 bad ones, not so w the eddy) shipping is always costly to the Euro nation but buying a "Handful" of them might be beneficial?

    Now there's a Bigsby dealer stepping up to the plate... Make sure that they're CITES compliant before shipping, Tavo!:D

    Maybe it is made of solid sterling silver. That would justify the hefty pricetag.:D

    Here's another... I get that it's a vintage 50s B6 component but it needs a lot of help to be functional!
