    Finally It's here, and it's wonderful.

    Plays like a dream, so resonant and lovely.
    Great guitar, my weekend is saved :smile:

    It's awesome!:smile:
    Can you explain how the sideways vibrola compare to the standard vibrola or to a bigsby?

    oh you got the sideways vibrato. Those look so cool and unique but I've heard they are a nightmare on tuning. Like guitarman84, I'd love to hear how you're finding it to be. It's a beauty of an axe, no doubt about that.

    I'd say a bigsby is way more useable than either of the Gibson Vibrolas.
    Maybe they can be tweaked to work better but hardly as well as a bigsby.
    The vibrolas are very very pretty though, like jewelry on your guitar.

    Can you get one of those vibrolas and lock it so it doesn’t move ? I like the look but don’t want or care for a tremolo
