1. The company that makes the Robot hardware for Gibson (http://www.tronical.com/)also made a version of it for the Fender Stratocaster. You could buy it as a kit for either guitar, and it worked with the Strat trem IIRC. Doesn't look like they still sell that kit anymore for Strats since now they have an alternative kit that fits on the back of the headstock and has much less invasive installation procedures. Perhaps they'll be more responsive to your questions than Gibson was.

2. Did you say it's an LP Robot? I know a guy who retrofitted his LP with a Bigsby trem. It mounted onto the existing hardware already in the guitar intended for the TOM bridge, so there was no drilling necessary. I think this is what he has: http://www.stewmac.com/shopby/item/...CFYSe4AodZ0UA1g but I'm not 100% sure. It's less than $150.

PM me if you figure it out...

Thanks.

It's an SG. Thanks for the idea to e-mail Tronical. I'll see if they write back.

OK. Yeah, that bridge probably wouldn't work on an SG without some highly undesirable adaptations.

Good luck w/Tronical.
