Looks like it could handle itself in a fight - hard core.

Regarding the strat jack hole - plug it, fill it, sand the fill and the body a bit, and hit it with a black rattle can. Or burgundy red. Just my two cents.

I have foam under my Lollar pickups, IU'd rather use springs like those.
They were a suggestion from my tech - he uses them on P90'd guitars.

I put on the pickguard, used it to measure where the pickups go, screwed the covers into place to get the holes, and then using the second and fifth polepiece, marked where to drill. Then I drilled, and glued the springs into place.

Small update. I sold some stuff locally, and got these for really cheap:

So this weekend, the Jazzy gets an upgrade :D

Yes. Bold move. Totally changes how you see the yellow. Really nice.

I can't help but wonder what a nice brown celluloid guard would look like, though.

You should give us brief information about this thread. I have a cigarette holder but i don't know all of it's function. Hope you will discuss about it again.

Lookin' good. I like the "tort splash" over the old 1/4 inch jack input. Good solution.

Has anyone here ever used the bigsby with the longer wire arm? does it also have the locking tab that prevents you from lifting the trem arm up?

That always drives me crazy, that.
