What's anyone think of this? I like it, saw it over on TDPRI





Not sure about the chrome pickup ring around the neck pickup but I think it's ok

Bad, but yet, strangely practical. Like there was plenty of room, so park a Figsby there. Don't like Bronco shaped pg's either.

I think it's cool. Just 86 the neck pickup ring.

I hate it. Musicmasters are perfect in their simplicity.

I guess I would have to hear it. Seems like putting a hood ornament on a skateboard.

If somebody had described this to me before seeing it I would have expected to love it. In reality though, it's fucking horrid. Oh dear.

Sticking a Tele Bigsby on any/all Fenders seemed so much cooler a few years ago. I think I'd probably find that guitar pretty cumbersome.

Clusterfuck.

And not in a good way. It reminds me of a Citroen Saxo with a shit body kit.

imagine a jag trem but

- you can't actually move the arm over the strings
- much harder to restring
- there isn't as much travel
- is more prone to falling out of tune
- feels clunky and shit to use in general
