Bigsby Replica Merle Travis 2010 Natural

Sorry, this listing has ended.


Custom made Bigsby style guitar. This particular instrument is kind of a mashup of Merle Travis' guitar and the 'George Grohs' Bigsby that was owned by RC Allen. It was built by a luthier in Central Ohio who has made guitars that are owned and played by Billy Gibbons, Brad Paisley, Mike McCready, Peter Stroud, Sheryl Crow, Kenny Greenberg, and others. It is not an exact copy, as the body is a little thicker than the originals (and other replicas - plus it's not like there are originals floating around to get specs from). Beautiful woods throughout. Maple body and neck. The body is chambered, with birdseye maple top and back.This is a very comfortable, stable, and usable instrument. Holds a setup, stays in tune, resonates well, and looks amazing. The pickup is a custom made Replica of the original PA blade pickup, and was done by Fred Stuart at Virtual Vintage. This guitar was built alongside another just like it that was commissioned by Sheryl Crow as a gift to Brad Paisley. Brad's guitar, this guitar's 'brother',' can be seen in the photo of Brad at his home. Other makers are building similar 'PA Bigsby-inspired' instruments, but they cost about 3X my asking price. Hard case included.
