So, what changed?
The offset double cutaway body is made of solid Mahogany with a maple top, for a deep rich tone with top end bite. The genuine Bigsby tremolo and adjustable steel bridge mean faultless intonation and better string attack - an improvement over the rosewood bridge and antiquated tremolo system on the original. The neck profile is improved with a modern C-shape, as well as coupling it to the body with a newly engineered neck joint system for longer sustaining notes. The individual machine heads are another improvement over the original - the results which both you and your audience will appreciate.
