Bigsby (import) outstanding product!

Here is my Epi Black Beauty 3 with the Bigsby(- import) I purchased from Stewart-MacDonald.

I modified the Pick-up wiring. Now, the middle pick-up has its own Volume knob which was a Tone knob. The pick-up is also reversed, which gives it a more Treble than Rhythm sound. Now I can blend all three pick-ups with each other in whatever manner I wish or can activate just the middle pick-up by itself! Many combinations can be achieved.

The outer golden screws in the pick-up Mounting Rings were replaced by black screws and the Toggle Switch knob which was black is replaced with a Golden knob.

Further, I replaced the Tone and Volume knobs, which were Speed knobs, and which are now Bell knobs.

Had no problems removing the Tailpiece and the Studs; filled up the holes with the same diameter wooden plugs. Painted the top of them black. The plug at the bottom Stud hole, is where I extended the Ground wires from the Pick-ups and Pots electronics. So the Ground wire surfaced and, in the Bigsby spring-holder I drilled a small hole so that the Ground wire could fit through it and is than put in place and than the plastic wash could be applied with the spring; and that fulfills the Ground aspect.

The Bigsby is an excellent product. I am content! Easy to install; had not problems with it. I only had to modify the Strap Button (on the Epi) because it was about 4-5 mm not centered as it should, so, I filled the existing hole and centered a new hole to align it correctly. Than, I installed the Bigsby. If I had not conducted this procedure the Bigsby would have been mounted 'crooked'! Or, too high in proportion with the bridge and pick-ups, alignment.

Not bad, for an investment of about 680,- euros! The Bigsby, which I looked up to see how much it would cost here in the country I live in was on an online music components store priced at about 250 euros!! The original Bigsby was about 300,- euros!! So, you see it was very wise of me to have purchased the (import) Bigsby at Stewart-MacDonald for HALF the price it costs here!!

Thank you... Stewart-MacDonald!

i like it

Installed it on gibson lp custom. Fit like it's supposed to. The gold finish is really nice, instructions suck. Needs lots of common sense to do it right.
