Did any of you that attended get pictures of Bigsby's Pick-up winder? I have no doubt the Sample case he built for his trip to Europe. He built his cases and that one smacks of his work. My Bigsby book is packed away, where it belongs, but it might even say that? Both were won by the same bidder, #801. Sure hope the winder will make pups again, but I kinda doubt it will. They must have saved every prototype. Never seen that word used so many times! And more RI Bigsby guitars than I've ever seen or heard of. I've never had one in my hands or heard one live but I think Fred Stuart made the pups. When they first appeared I remember not so good reviews of them from a savvy player pal, and they didn't last long on the shelves. The double cut, double guard with B3 would have been my choice. Having one of the Gretsch benches would have been cool and they went reasonable, assuming you didn't need shipping! The Fender amps were great to see but 3k+ for a brown Reverb unit?
