I scored this for a good price on my local clist a couple of days ago and WOWZA! The previous owner was using it as a wall ornament for the last couple of years. He claims he wasn't a player but I think the truth was that the guitar was un-playable since it would not stay in tune for 5 seconds w/the bigsby. I threw on a fresh set of daddario 11's and removed the outer sleeve on the bigsby tension roller and now it plays about 90% better than when I got it. I have roller bridge on order that should make it go to 100% on the fixed scale but I'll have to see. The nut is not causing any problems but I went ahead and put some graphite in the slots. This guitar is a 2014 model in absolute un-played mint condition. The new bridge has a 12" radius and should be a direct drop in replacement.
