  G'Day All, I'm after a bit of help or advice if possible? I was given an old Strat style electric guitar that I"m totally remodelling and I want to add a Bigsby B5 Vibrato to her, the trouble I'm having is what would be the best sort and easiest to fit bridge to suit, I have checked heap's and different kind"s on the web but most seem to suit Gibson style and I don't think the one's with the 2 wheel's etc will fit where the original bridge was or woudl I be better off making my own Bone bridge/saddle ? Cheer"s

Thought so. Still, nice copies for the price. In my opinion that is, I know other builders who condemn them.

Yes Daniel the body is ply

Alaskan Birch Doubleneck six-string guitar and four-string fretless bass.

Oh yeah, I know those guys. I thought about buying one of their copy SG's. They aren't actually bad quality guitars for the most part, especially for the price they are sold for second hand. What's the wood? Ply?

The guitar is branded Swift,got it from Swift Music London

Comment by Daniel Sharman on February 20, 2014 at 8:46am

what brand is that fred? 

Comment by Michael Fred Johnson on February 20, 2014 at 6:55am

A LP copy bought new for £49,I thought, can't buy the parts for that I'll cannibalise it.When I got it didn't have the heart.Lowered the action,refinished the rough fingerboard and replaced a pot.A friend who is a good guitarist thinks it's great
