    Yep, a Tru-Arc and a softer spring set mine up just fine.
    I felt the same as you after I got mine, that i should’ve just gotten an Electromatic. Now I have 2 electromatics, and my streamliner feels just as nice as both of them.

    I need a step-son. Have empty bedroom and 3 square meals a day. Also bring me a guitar like you got your dad.

    you're a great Dude and a good son.
    Beautiful guitar. I hope once he sees it he'll get the itch and get back to playing. This is really inspiring. Kudos!!!!

    He’s real happy.
    When he first opened the case he said “where’s the bigsby?”

    I played his gibson acoustic and he plugged in and played his Gretsch. We did some Kinks, some Hank Williams and some Johnny Cash tunes.
    It was a fun evening.

    Heart-warming! I never had a son, so there's a vacancy at my house if you would like to apply. :):cool:
