Tracking number received, much excite. Looks like they used UPS Second Day Air, which is really unusual for Puerto Rico shipments. Good thing I opted to have it shipped to my office Very Happy

Looks like I bought it at the perfect time, since the price went up today.

Although I wish they had tried to replicate the original bridge, I still really like the look of these.

Interested in your feedback on how it plays.

I don't mind the bridge as much as I do the smaller body shape. Playing one felt more like one of those little es-339 things, which I also can't stand (though I get that others like them)

Black was a good choice! I managed to get a vintage one the other day. Still haven't tried out one of the reissues to see how they compare.

I didn't realise the body was smaller although I saw some comparison pics showing it was a slightly different shape in places. Think Punkacc9 might have posted them?

Always thought the ES-339s were a bit odd. Seemed like a good idea but they just look wrong somehow.

I always felt like Bigbys had too much weight and are kinda clunky. Prefer the Bronco or Jaguar Trem but it does look cool on hollowbody guitars.
