Got it a few days ago, was kinda stripped down, asked for input on the model and you folks came thru, so here. It probably needs some love

There were no strings, I replaced the knobs, and put a bone nut and trc. Even tho the trc is ugly as f##k, gonna switch that out

Mojotone makes a solder-free harness. Can't go wrong.

Beautiful guitar. I'd personally drop in a pre-wired harness and some pickups with covers (might as well upgrade to something really nice if you're changing pickups haha). Wouldn't take much soldering and you only paid $600 for it so no need to worry about learning as you go with the soldering in my opinion. Even dropping $300-$400 bucks on some pickups you'd still be in it for less than most Les Paul's run and it'd probably be even more of a tone machine. Just my 2 cents.

I like your thought process...

That thing kicks ass....

the only improvement i could suggest is below...
it should be noted I am an obsessive person and would put a bigsby on bowl of cereal

honestly, the zebras kick ass and that guitar is perfect

BUTTTTT.......with a vibramate, u can take it on and off with string changes

If I had that guitar and burstbuckers in a drawer it probably would've been on the workbench after the first sound test to see what current pickups sound like. You can always switch them back, not like you've gotta worry about originality. I'm not a bigsby guy but if I wanted a tremolo equiped LP I'd be looking at a the vibramate. What better mod platform could you have than a $600 LP that looks that good?
