Man, I totally would if it wasn't 50 bucks and I actually intended on using it. An "antique" ocarina is something that would only sit on my bookshelf collecting dust. Right next to my African thumb piano.

Ohoho ****, I can't stand back on this one, I've been salivating at the idea of a good project Tele cheap enough to experiment on without being worried that I'm killing the value / quality but well built enough that it's still suitable for gigging. This thing is gorgeous. Custom built, vintage Teisco P90s (any opinions? I haven't played these before), vintage bridge, and a crazy B-Bender system, only $400.

It has a Squire neck but I've been itching to try a custom neck from Warmoth anyway. Imagine it with a premium maple neck / ebony macassar fretboard, shieeeeeeeet.

Custom B-Bender Tele. Vintage Teisco P90's

Doesn't look like the one Jack White plays, but the headstock says airline, and google images tells me that there were some made in that colour, so it seems like yes.

Ah ****, my gear senses are tingling again.

Vintage 50's Stewart Wondertone w/ Bigsby & Gibson tuners - $450
Vintage Stewart Wondertone

This one has me a bit worried. I've always wanted an acoustic with a Bigsby, but I've always been weary of what mounting one on an acoustic could do. Obviously there are plenty of acoustics out there that can be purchased retail with a pre-fitted Bigsby, but where I start scrunching my eyebrows is when they're custom jobs post-purchase. What worries me even more about this one is that it's a genuine vintage 50's archtop. Who mounted the Bigsby? Was it mounted properly? Is the bracing on a 50's Stewart archtop strong enough to handle continual Bigsby usage without slowly warping or cracking? How much did the installation affect the tone and volume of the guitar?

But of course, when the price is that low for something that unique, I'm starting to get excited.
I suppose I better start asking the owner.

Anybody have experience with Bigsbys on acoustics or Bigsby installations in general?
Also, anybody own any 50's archtops? Are they generally a lot more fragile than modern builds?
