    Looks great, very nice ES-333! The Bigsby sounds good as well. Really enjoy your playing.

    Have a blonde 333 with Seth Lovers' that I like a lot.

    Is the strip between the plaque and the Bigsby to conceal the ground wire?

    No, I installed it with a Vibramate. Super easy, works great......and it's reversible, no screws hole need to be drilled!

    Oh yea!

    that was awesome.

    I”ve recently been trying to learn some of that stuff— (Mystery train) but I”ve decided I want to try to use a hybrid picking technique so I can transition back and forth while keeping the pick in my fingers. Also watching Greg Koch vids he will do that and I love how he can go back and forth.

    great pickin ! I love this stuff

    what’s Your slap back delay? Sounds perfect

    That is so COOL! I didn’t know about this. Kind of fun to know that is an option.

    Thanks!

    I generally do hybrid pick, but I didn't have one right there, and I was too lazy to get up and go across the room to grab one! LOL

    Here's a thread with a bunch of my Youtube instructionals. A good chunk are hybrid picking.

    It's a Strymon El Capistan delay. They're the bomb diggetty!

    I appreciate the kind words and everyone listening!

    awesome-- will dig in

    that is so funny that its the El Cap-- I literally was just looking at them for this very thing

    I have the timeline but I think the El Cap offers other things-- and is a little more user friendly

    gonna go down to the store in town tomorrow and get one.

    maybe you can take a photo of your settings for this thread?

    ah just saw you are in philly!

    I was born there, went to med school there, met my wife there. I love me some philly

    fly eagles fly!

    OK, thanks. But what is the strip for then; I'm a geetar technical geek!? Or how did you connect the ground wire? Not trying to be disrespectful. I love ES333's and this sounds like a great one as ususal. Thanks...

    look at the schematic on the diagram from the link of the plate--

    its part of the plate that screws in that holds the bigsby on there-- its just one side.

    Thanks guys. I did a gig last weekend with it, thinking I’d use it for one set........and ended up playing it for all 3. Sounded and played GREAT, and stayed in tune really well, even with copious Bigsby use.

    Yeah, it works great. I think it's an essential product. Too many nice guitars out there with unwanted screw holes in the top from Bigsbys that were removed.
