    Any possibility you can post a picture of the letter from the store owner on here or your Reverb ad?
    You also said that the guitar was used on several recordings and was just wondering where you got that info.
    And I agree, the wear on the Bigsby matches.
    You also said that TV Jones set it up in the "90's. Other than a setup was anything changed? Reason I ask is it's known that Brian has had TV make changes on some of his guitars.
    How long Have you owned it?

    I'd be glad to chat with you via PM or email. I bought it about 2-3 years back. A lot of info I got on it came from phone conversations with the previous owner, TV Jones and the shop owner at Willies who dealt directly with Brian on the guitar when it came in.

    Price drop, motivate to sell, still trying to free up cash from my guitar collection due to a career change.

    Added some photos of the letter from Willies, the label in the control cavity and the pots to my reverb listing.

    Thanks for the photos. You would think that after 26 years of owning it and recorded with, there would be photos or video of Brian playing this guitar.
    Hey Mr. Setzer! Chime in. What's the skinny on this guitar?
