    I love the Bigsby on my Starla. Seems to stay in tune just fine. Maybe I'm just not abusing it enough?

    So this McCarty with P90s and a Bigsby is very intriguing!

    It’s perfect for him.
    We’re not entirely convinced it is Brazilian.

    Best not take a chance on the customs agent disagreeing. They have a good bit of discretionary power.

    Well, McCarty Soapbar, that’s a plus. Bigsby - I know some folks don’t care for them, but they do a thing nothing else will do the same way. Plus, Ted McCarty owned Bigsby after he left Gibson. so it fits.

    “Pick me Hans...pick me!!!”

    The Bigsby does give her a southern accent, but she sounds extra sexy with it.

    It really is my kind of Guitar but needs a refin and a new case. Its not a BRW fretboard. Its all beat to sh!t. Back and neck too. Worth less than half their asking price, in my opinion.

    If I bought it, I would send it straight to the PTC for a conplete refin. And different pickups. And a proper case. And...
