I am too lazy to go back and look, but I think I have titled a blog post the very same way before. Oh well.
I’m on the internet looking at things to do to my new/used Epiphone Sheraton VSB instead of play it and I see this:
It’s for sale at the Music Zoo so way out of my price range, but man it looks cool! It’s a used Gibson Custom Shop Alex Lifeson ES-355 Electric Guitar in Alpine White with adjustable wide travel Tune-o-Matic bridge and Maestro Long Vibrola tailpiece. All in gold hardware!
I’ve been looking at adding a gold Bigsby tailpiece (probably a B70), but have been hesitant. Then I thought about adding some modern thing that may not look as classic, but will work better. Now I think I’m headed toward a Maestro in gold. I loved the one I had on my old Epiphone “1965” SG G-400. It was nice and firm. It didn’t do crazy bends, but it gave me the feel I like on my strings. And I could get a little warble with little effort.
Which tailpiece would you add if you had Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket?
