Great 60's retro vibe in Surf Green fitted with a bigsby B5. Brierley 52 for tele bridge pickup and the neck is a Brierley vintage stye P90. This pickup set has proven to be an alltime favourite and as it gives a very wide tonal palette from the the searing muscular twang of the bridge to the warm sweet thick tones of the p90 neck. 4-way switching including the ever popular "Strangle" mod. You'll not the slotted saddle adjuster screws in pic 2. If you have ever had a tele with a Bigsby B5 trem you'll understand the importance of these.
