  1. I think most of us agree that there is something truly special about a well played and worn in guitar, the reality is most people cant afford the vintage price tags. I don't see the issue with trying to get as close to the real thing as possible, especially when the difference in dollars can be anywhere from 10 to 100x's more.
  2. great choice! report back!
  3. I agree that its simple, but I feel they move too freely and once its set, how often does anyone really want it adjust it? Every time I changed the strings they would move and sometimes even when I play. But on the subject of leaving the bridge and replacing the tailpiece, any G-style tailpiece should be fine, and if you like the roller bridge, then keep it!
  4. In my experience the roller bridge only really helps with a Bigsby, when strings are bent over a fulcrum and need less friction. I think the rollers are a good concept but what I find is that they move too easily and my string spacing wasn't consistent, most noticeably when I changed the strings. It is well built but kind of a bulky look to me. I opted for the traditional look and went with a locking Tonepros. String changes are a breeze, I also feel like I get a little more sustain but who knows.
  5. most of the semi hollow and hollowbody lineups had matching wooden pickguards as a standard for a long time, i think until sometime in the mid 200's but i'm not entirely certain what year(s) my '94 550 and '87 535 both have matching wooden pickguards
