Got some gas going on for one of these.

I understand the body is pretty big? Bothersome big?

What else can you tell me?

Thanks

Are you asking about the guitar, or the bass?

Haven't played the guitar.

The body of the bass is pretty much the same size as a Gibby 335. IMHO, it's not "bothersome big" in the least. They are my all-time favorite bass.

I had a Guild T-100 guitar (which looks to be about the same sized body as the SF-II) years ago and thought that was also comfortable to play.

All depends on personal preference, I suppose.

Sorry, the guitar.

I’m just used to playing a Tele. But I do have an epi sorrento. I’ll have to measure it. The heel gets in the way of going real high on it though.

If you've ever played a Gibson 335, it's similar to that.

Yes, I have had and played 335s and that didn’t bother me.
Thank you.

Now I’m thinking the Starfire lll with bigsby.

I don’t how it does with tuning while using the bigsby, does it stay in tune?

Then, the other question would be, comparing the floating bridge to the stoptail?

See my comments on your other thread re: the bridge and Bigsby. I don't know about the newer ones, but my 1960 has vintage frets, is a single cutaway and true hollow-body. Frets can be changed. the single cutaway can be limiting up high on the neck, and the hollow-body will squeal like a pig if you are not careful. With that said, it is a wonderful instrument. It is warm, full range, and articulate. The original DeArmond pups are amazing, but are noisy like any single coil. But they can really make me smile.
