    Hey, guys! Got some things in the mail today! Stew-Mac + eBay

    This stuff will go into my upcoming Cabronita Build. Only missing the pickups, Bigsby B5 and a bridge which will be ordered shortly.

    I'm having a real hard time deciding which bridge to go with the B5.
    Golden Age Roller Bridge, Schaller or a regular TuneOmatic. Never had a rolling bridge and opinions seem to be all over the place. Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Anyway, will start a build thread as soon as my luthier finishes the body (early February) and neck (March) which I chose to prep and finish myself, stay tuned :)

    I was gonna order the body on eBay and a Warmoth neck but decided to go with this local guy. He's basically building me a bound mahogany Cabronita body for $170 and a speced out flamed maple neck for $180. Wasn't happy about his wait times but after seeing and playing a few of his guitars I was sold.
