    How useful is a Strat? Do I need one?

    I'll say yes you "need" one. But. It's not just about the tone. It's the vibe too. Every guitar has its own vibe, but a Strat ....I can't explain it, but it sure has a special one. Variety is a good thing, especially if you're not dialed in to one signature sound. When I had a Strat, I just...

    Bigsby handle vice bending

    The modern "flat" handle" arms that I've had appear to be stamped. I replaced mine with "DE" handles, which are cast. DO NOT TRY AND BEND A CAST ARM. I set the DE handle height by changing the large spring. 7/8" springs work for me. Best of luck.

    THIS LOOKS ODD

    Looks like an early version. The binding used was all white, no multi layered with thin black strips. Legit.

    String through conversion on a Bigsby

    I've noticed no string tension change between a Callaham bar and a standard pinned bar. The Callaham bar has large enough holes for 13's. FWIW, the Callaham is made from stainless steel, so ball ends don't have a chance to "dig in" to the chamfered area that they seat in. Hope this helps some.

    What would you do/buy. Hypothetical Question of course.

    Agreed. I'm blessed with some great equipment that's far above my playing skills. I don't need or really want anything else. They have spoiled me, and it's a joy to play them. I'm sticking with some more trains with this hypothetical windfall. 😆

    What would you do/buy. Hypothetical Question of course.

    I used to count the empty bottles when the bank statement came in, then added to the bottle count. "Old Ways"

    It'll sound very Gretsch.

    Best home amp for Gretsch 6122 59

    Your budget? That's the question, as there are many great amps on the market. Price points are very different. FWIW, when I had my -59, it sounded excellent through my Excelsior. Very nice gits and happy hunting.
