    Hello,

    I asked about pickups (mini humbuckers) here not long time ago ... and well ... now that guitar is ready:

    Sorry as this guitar is not Squier or Fender ... but I though in this section of forum ... it does't matter so much.

    The guitar has aldar body (matt lime green color), maple neck (finishing: satin),
    22 frets rosewood fingerboard, gold hardwares, white pickguard and cream color pickups and knobs.

    I would have never thought to put that green with gold hardware and cream plastics. But wow! That looks great. Very well done. You have some beautiful guitars in your collection.

    Yes, it is beautiful. How do you like the sound? Did you wire humbuckers so you can split them or wire them in parallel?

    There are still 2 ''things'' I miss (and want to add) my collection. But I will stop in 7 guitars.

    Just remember, the perfect number of guitars in a collection is always “one more!” :)

    Never say never, right ... but I think ''the last'' (7.) will be closely ''perfect'' to me ...

    I just have wanted to have one since I watched film Crossroads ... and I heard about Ry Cooder (played some solos in that movie). I ''googled'' him and noticed that he had actually installed bigsby in his strat. Being first one I saw.

    Anyway ... bigsby feels funny. If it makes me to touch that guitar time to time/for awhile/more often ... it has done its jobs :).
