Just saw the post on Instagram of that natural 555 with bigsby. Wow what a looker. Anybody know if they are going to offer them as a standard model? Sorry I didn't post pics but couldn't remember the rules of posting pics from another site?

That's from the Custom Shop. It's a Beauty!

Now that's fancy.  The chrome, extra binding and block inlays are classy.

Here's one from the same factory from 1982 a friend of mine just got today.  Similar but somewhat different.

No, those are Custom Shop models now.  They cut down their standard line to a handful of models from what they used to offer.

Thanks Daniel, knowing what beautiful guitars you have, that's a real compliment. I swapped out the gold for nickel as I wanted to make it just that little bit unique, also putting the more standard bridge in - it's a great guitar

I like the nickel WAY Better!

I just tool the gold Bigsby off this guitar because I HATED all that gold...

Another one of your beautiful guitars, you and I think the same - the less gold the better.I would love a Gretsch but I've been out of work since las November. One of these days I will find one I like and put the money down. Thanks for the nice words about my 555.
