I just wanted to give compliments to Pettingill Handcrafted Guitars. I bought a used Southern Belle six string with the multibender bridge and I couldn't be happier with it. I purchased it from a forum member on the east coast of Canada who got it to me without hassle. Anytime you buy something sight unseen (or ear unheard) it can be a bit of a chance, but the moment I got it out of the case and picked the first note the sustain was amazing and I knew it was a winner. Still haven't tackled learning the multibender bridge but that'll be next. Here's a little video of me playing a live take with a band here in Edmonton AB. I've got overdrive and some vintage delay running through my Princeton Reverb Reissue for a pretty bluesy tone. Anyhow, Pettingill's work is recommended. I'll spread the word out here in Western Canada. Thanks!
