This look awful purty. Maybe after I sell my Taylor and a Bigsby Casino...

It does, However inexpensive ibbys are wrought with inferior hardware. (as are many) If when you buy consider purchasing a better tailpiece / bridge and possibly tuners, pups.

It's not just ibby's Though I love my Dangelico EXL- Premier I curse it each time I tune and I'm always thinking how much nicer it would sound with a full size floating humbucker like a Johnny Smith over the mini I have currently installed.

Oh, yeah. Get ready for a fret polishing and dressing.

Fret polishing and dressing gets done on most of my guitars. I had an AS103NT, their top of the line Artcore at that time. It played very well without any work, but I didn't like it through sims. The pups are bright, but through the right amp, sounded excellent. I sold it to put towards one of my other guitars, forget which. I also had a lower end model, and after a setup, played perfectly. Again, sold.
What I'd really like is a Yamaha SA2200, but that ain't gonna happen.
