    Hi all

    just about to embark on a 2420 restoration and I’m looking for a fairly priced gold B60

    would appreciate any help you could offer.
    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum! We'd love to hear what you've got planned for your 2420.

    You might be able to find a used one on Reverb or eBay. New ones seem to cost about $200, which is a lot to spend on a Streamliner. (That's not a knock against Streamliners—they're great! It's just that a new gold B60 will cost almost half what you paid for the guitar.) At that price, I'd consider selling the 2420 and buying a 5420TG, which comes with gold hardware.

    That said: if you want to replace your Bigsby and you have the budget for it, you might consider a B6 instead of a B60. New ones cost an extra $30 or so, and used ones might be easier to find.

    We'd love to see pics of your guitar and hear about what you're planning. Good luck!
