When it doesn't fit anywhere else

My estimation on why it's not selling might be a combination of"
1. played by BW w/o a COA or photo or anything
2. bigsbys are notorious for being a PITA
3. i'd be curious if the trem was factory or not and if not, what bracing is underneath

It can be hard to tell about trems. Take this guitar of mine, my first electric that my dad bought me in '69 and I still own, a lovely '67 Made In Sweden Hagstrom Viking I. The trem looks stock for the guitar because it truly is a rarely available, authentic, made-by-Bigsby-for-Hagstrom Hagstrom-labled trem. But it did not come stock on the guitar, I copped the trem NOS and added it to the guitar a couple of decades later.

(Note also the asymmetrical PUP surrounds -- that's because, like an idiot, in college, I routed the top for humbuckers and had to fix later upon returning the original single coils [which are wonderful, BTW, they can hold their own with vintage Gretsch single coils). :oops: )

To clarify: Rich Lasner's guitar, which sold, was played by Weir. The guitar currently for sale was not played by Weir.
