    Here's my ca. 1972 '58 ('54) reissue. The Badass was on it when I bought it. The finish crack seems to be at a seam in the top. The pickup rings were missing when I got it and it had Grovers which I replaced with Gibson-branded Klusons.

    Thanks! Actuality got this here on the Gear Page back in '13.
    Here is one with it's original wraptail but the Bigsby came with it and I presume that it has been with the guitar for most if not all of it's life. I had to source out the late 50's rocker bridge so it would stay in tune. The holes were pre-existing so I didn't feel guilty putting the vibrato back on! Love it!

    I have the same guitar, ‘53 with bigsby... I call her “two face” due that I switch back and forth between the bigsby and stop tailpiece....

    The Bigsby stays on mine but all of it's other parts stay in the case. I have some Juniors with the wraptial so that keeps the desire down to switch it out, lol!
