@johnny g Thanks! You can imagine I can't wait either... I'm planning the next step to be the big one: New bigsby installation, pickups, harness, bridge, and nickel hardware all at once. Of which I only have the Bigsby in possession, at the moment. I have some busy (read: expensive) months ahead, so I'm afraid project '59 is on hold for the moment. After my holidays in May I hope that I've made up my mind about which pickups to order. @BorderRadio that's good to hear. So... I may be not far off by stating this licensed Bigsby may be a better quality product than the US made version. Maybe we'll never know. I have learned so much in this short time I've joined this board. Thanks guys!
