Thinking of putting one of these on my 325 C58. Do I get the compensated one and will I have to cut grooves for the strings. Does it matter which Bigsby B5 I get.

Don't worry about my question. I'm sure no body was. LOL. I bought a trapeze tailpiece. Took the Kauffman off, put the trapeze on. No holes to be drilled. Kept it stock. It plays really well. The next person that owns it can drill holes in it if they desire or put the worthless Kauffman back on. I just didn't want to at this time.
