Vibrato on a Gibson Robot

Hi. I'd like to put a whammy bar on my Gibson Robot SG. Is this even possible with the Robot's special tailpiece? If so, which kind of vibrato should I use? Bigsby? Vibrola? Another kind?

I suppose you could try putting a bigsby on and running the strings through the tailpiece? No idea if it would still work though.

Well, yes I could do that. But I'd rather know if it will work or not before I start drilling holes in the wood.
