Pigtail ABR1


Aug 31, 2003
I just picked up a Pigtail ABR1 and the casting on the top of the bridge, just under the saddles is a bit rough looking. Not nearly as smooth and polished as the original that came on my historic. It looks like it's from the casting process itself. Is this how its suppose to look? Are the real 50's parts this way. I can't find any detailed pics of any other pigtails to compare it to.
