A dood on TGP recently cut a metal shim the height of the pickguard in order to fit a Biggs. Looks weird, and will need a wound G and saddle grooves on the compensated aluminum bridge in order to be playable.

Yeah, the 60 Cycle Hum podcast guys have been totally 'on' the SL youtube output once their original NAMM video blew up.

Love it with a Bigsby, just needs the scratchplate cut at a right angle to keep it looking elegant.. still looks a bit lopsided though:

The Bigsby style doesn't look good on that guitar. Too busy.

I'd whack a cheap thrills Tiesco-style GFS or some such.

I don't think the routing will allow for an elegant solution for the Bigsby mod.

Epiphone is a different company from Squier. Laughing

Those cheap P90 Epiphones are pretty rare in Europe too.

Are you referring to the pickguard? This is a photoshop that shows the pickguard in relation to the routing.

The only thing white in this pic is the guitar's pickguard which has the routing superimposed over it to show the boundaries as a reference for modders.
