Description

(Book). Most musicians are familiar with the famous Bigsby Vibrato, but not as many know about the wonderful guitars that Paul Bigsby built in the 1940s. Bigsby, who was responsible for developing and refining the pedal steel guitar, also built the first modern solid body electric guitar for Merle Travis in 1948, predating Leo Fender and Gibson's Les Paul by a number of years. The Story of Paul A. Bigsby tells how Bigsby influenced Fender and Gibson, as well as a number of other guitar manufacturers, in building techniques and design. This deluxe illustrated coffee table book contains over 300 color and black & white photos. Many of these have not previously been published, and over 50 are actual Bigsby instrument photos taken by fine arts photographer Greg Morgan. The book also comes with an audio CD of Paul Bigsby, recorded in the late 1950s, telling stories of his business.

Gibson Les Paul Goldtop -295?

I'm thinking of buying a gibson lp 298, but I want to install two Seymour Duncan P90's in it instead of using humbuckers values. the will of p90 is to fit in, or is this impossible? my ideal setup is the Goldtop with a Bigsby tremolo and two Seymour Duncan P90. I've been looking for that installation, but you can only find the lp 295 with 57 trucks and a Bigsby. tion of type I was 295 by the way!

Why not look at Seymour Duncan P-rails. This is twice the size of a pill that has a P-90 and a thin single coil togther. This gives three different tones, P90, single coil and humbucker (both coils combined). These http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/electric/humbucker/progressive/prails_shpr1/ be a direct drop in replacement humbuckers on the Les Paul. I would push-pull pots went on to make the switching of the coil, probably only between P90 and humbucking modes, since no single coil I would be very thin good in a Lester.
