    Interesting, but in my mind there are different memories ;) ... though the pickups don't match.

    The colour looks wrong to me. That`s more of a beige- than a goldtop.

    That might be a photo quality issue.

    A Bigsby is huge compared to other trems, so it looks weird on a small body.

    Congrats! That's a lovely guitar, nothing wrong with that shade of gold, regardless of the "shade" you've received thus far by posting that on a Gretsch forum. Also, I believe they installed these Bigsby's with the Vibramate so if you do decide to "un-Bigsby" it it'll be easy as pie to do.

    This guy seemed to like a Bigsby on his LP guitar.

    Oh, wait. I thought that was a NGD post! I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue. Well, I'm sure someone out there bought one today so HNGD to whomever did so.

    Well, this makes we want to equip my LP's with Bigsby's. I think i start with my Goldtop.
