Bigsby B7 on a Gretsch Corvette?

Postby (IHeartRics) » Sun Apr 12, 2015 9:47 pm

Does anybody have any insight on whether a Bigsby B7 would fit on a vintage Gretsch Corvette? I'm interested in the Corvette model that has the little cut out at base of the guitar were the strap button is. My concerns are the thickness of the guitar to accommodate the tail of the B7 hinge and the length of the B7 that it doesn't get too close to the bridge. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks Peter,
Actually I have the B7. I was more interested in the dimensions of the Corvette. I'm looking at a husk that I thought about putting it back together. I did get the measurements and unfortunately the B7 is too big. :(
