I LOVE my Bigsby.
Once I got hooked on Chet I dreamed of getting a guitar with a Bigsby. I used to ride my bike four or five miles to the only store in town that had Gretsch and they would let me play their 6120 (unamplified) so I could add that extra dash the Bigsby gave my primitive Chet efforts. Ride all that way for maybe ten minutes of bliss...

I'm one of the stationary bracket guys and wouldnt' have it any other way.

He used it in "dips" like on Trambone but it was a part of Chet's electric sound until he started playing the CE's. He used it like a singer does. Hit the note, hold the note and add vibrato (on both sides of the note)

Is he playing a 6130 Roundup or is it the CA 6121? I couldn´t see a Bigsby handle. Wonderful sound out of those Dynasonic pickups. Excellent job.

Hi Guys

I'm using a 1996 Roundup 6121 reissue, I also switch the Bigsby handle later with a Chet Atkins style that I ordered
on Ebay.

Also thanks to all for the nice comment on youtube, I really appreciate it

Jean-François ;)

Wow thanks!
That's what I like about Chets community everybody are here for the same reasons, enjoy guitar playing and
encouraging each other to become a better musician.

I'm working now on ''walk don't run'' and :shock: :oops: :roll: ¸
I need ice on my right hand!!!

Everytime I do a new one I allways have the same conclusion... Chet was the best ever,ever, eeevvveeeerr!!!
