    ....its got some crazy contraption on it, and an ABR bridge, but that won't be too hard to reverse, just some screw holes.

    Nice.
    That contraption is probably a Bigsby Palm Pedal.
    Looks like fun!

    Thats it.

    I'll probably leave it on till the parts come in the mail.

    I'm thinking RetroSpec Studs and bushings.
    Mojoaxe tailpiece.

    I'm curious as to why you would mess with a guitar that has such a lineage. It's your axe, you can certainly do wtf you want with it. But why???

    That palm pedal itself isn't cheap. At this point its almost like original equipment though since Yes recorded with it and it can be proven.


    Now to find a Yes fan that would buy the thing off you for an unmodded one. Though I suspect if you were able to buy it at a price "with mods to be undone", no one else was interested in its history.

    Funny thing is, I couldnt name a YES song.
    I just know the singer has a womanly voice and the bass player uses a Ric.
