    Congratulations! I would like to hear more about the mix up also. I recently got one of these. It's a beauty and sounds wonderful. Are you going to add a Bigsby or stay with the Cadillac tailpiece?

    You're right, that's a beauty. I've had a crazy week with work and appointments and even a Christmas concert so I've not had time to play mine much at all since it arrived. I'm really looking forward to having some time with her soon. My main reason for going for this model over the others was the vertical logo and fingerboard inlay. I always knew I could add a Bigsby if I decided to go down that route – which I haven't yet by the way – but I couldn't change the headstock or the inlay. How about you? Are you gonna install a Bigsby on yours?

    I wanted a Falcon with the same headstock and inlays, but I needed Filtertrons. I got lucky and found one from 2005 on sale last August that had all the goods.
    Couldn’t be happier!

    It plays and sounds great as is, but I will probably add a B6GBVF. I won't have time until after Christmas. Good luck with yours!
