Episode 1 - 1948 Bigsby Solid Body Guitar
It's the third guitar Paul Bigsby made and the first with 2 pickups, the design being inspired by Paul's great friend Merle Travis. And, it's a few years older than the first Fender solid body, making it one of the first solid body guitars ever made. This amazing piece of electric guitar history was literally about to be thrown into a dumpster in Alaska...!! Paul Bigsby was to become a household name in the guitar world as the premier builder of whammy bars.
