So it's been quite some time since I last updated y'all... it's getting cold, and I'm getting lazy :p:

There are a couple of options, but none of them cheap unfortunately. I put a Bigsby tremolo on my cheap Epi SG, using the vibramate adapter plate so I didn't need to drill any extra holes in the...

Very cool. If you're looking for feedback, I would stretch the top horn out a little, a la Jaguar. If you're not, just tell me to go mind my own damn business :)

Mockup looks great, it'll be good to see how the real thing comes out.

CNC machines are all good, not sure how it'll help with this build though - you've got most of the machining done already. As for a bridge, I'd go with a trapeze tailpiece and archtop bridge, for...
