A Gibson with a Bigsby is a very specific taste. Some will pay out the ass for one, other will hate them. Do what you want with the guitar; it's a 2000, so won't be even close to anyone's definition of "Vintage" for another 15+ years.
thanks damnedone; looks good, especially at 1.5 oz. If it maintains the same quality of play as the original, i'll definitely buy it.
