i have a ‘53 that came with a bigsby, but has the original studs installed.. so every year i swap between the bigsby and the stop tail peice. I purchased the stop tail peice off of Danelectro, shaved the bottom a little to bring the action down, work great.. Nice low action and awesome intonation.

What is the best and safest way to remove the rattle can finish and...
Abalone Vintage has a ‘57 gold top in your price range.. try him he might be interest in a trade..
