    I love lamp.

    File this under so close yet so far.

    I had a trapeze tailpiece for an original '52 Gibson LP saved on Reverb just to looky loo. I got a notification that there was a price drop so I opened the link to see what the seller was asking. Half price (from $400) PLUS a Reverb sale of 20% off. By the time I put it in my cart it was gone. 10 sec sooner & it could a shoulda woulda... Sold to a Japanese gentleman.

    People are asking absurd prices for these. It needed a bit of work but the bridge/feet is what matters. Next time.

    I'll prob just throw on a Frequensator & be done with the faux 295.

    I love the deco-ish look of those. I seem to recall someone telling me they were problematic, in practice.
