    Bigsby on a SC

    As some of you will have seen, I have an SE245 which has been heavily modified, and after seeing a thread asking 'do you have a bigsby and are you under 55' I thought to myself, I'd love a bigsby and I'm only 23.

    So, I would like to see examples of SC guitars with bigsby's fitted. (other than the lovely starla )

    TIA

    We did a special run of SE Semi Hollow Customs with a Bigsby. Not a Singlecut, but they looked amazing. I can't find a picture, any forum members pick one of these up?

    Probably out of your price range, but this is my absolute favorite PRS SC with a 5-speed....

    I have seen those online and would love one for some of the 'lighter' stuff we do!

    That does look fantastic. I wouldn't be buying one, i would just be adding the bigsby on to my SE245 as it is my main giging guitar and its gonna get wrecked over the next few years so might as well make it mine.

    It's easy enough to do. Just pull the stud wells, plug the holes, re-drill for the new bridge and install the Bigsby.

    My dealer has a couple of these and I made the mistake of trying one out because I now want it so bad, but don't have the $$. Just over $800 with the Bigsby and USA locking tuners is a hell of a deal.

    Never imagined it being too hard, otherwise I wouldn't have volunteered myself to do it!
