    To wit, neither rhyme nor reason but appealing nonetheless.

    I was on board until you showed me the Bigsby. Why did they put a guaranteed-to-be-out-of-tune-omatic on it?

    I'm with you on that. The bassist I play with regularly is primarily a guitarist and loves Bigsbys and I can't stand them. Looks, functionality, sound, and ergonomics just don't sit well with me.

    I guess that Bigsby and Marmite are in the same league?

    It’s a love ‘em or ...... scenario!

    I’ve never tried one myself, so I don’t really have an informed opinion.

    Pretty darn cool, if you ask me (and no one did, of course).

    Looks great. LOOOVE Bigsbys. Never able to get my Starla out of tune. Gretschs go out of tune because the stupid bridge isn't pinned in place and it moves when you use the bar. (In my experience). Out of my price range.

    If you are irritated by Bigsbys then both are liable to raise your blood pressure.
