I was wondering what the difference was between a bigsby and a floyd rose/ whammy bar
Looks, and stability and amount of pitch change google image them and youll see.

Rate my playing skills please.
They're both "tremolo" units, but they operate so differently and are meant for such different thing (bigsby=slight warble, FR=anything from warble to insanse divebombs) they're hard to compare.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
what has been already said, and wammy bar is just a slang term for any kind of tremolo system.
My rig:
Gibson faded V
Dean Razorback
Fender Showman Strat
Dean Dimebag Tribute ML
Custom guitar
Boss ME-50
Marshall AVT50H

92% of teenagers have moved to rap, put this in your sig if you're in the 8% that still listens to real music.
a bigsby can also only usualy go down, while a floyd can heighten or lower the pitch of the strings, one more thing, a floyd rose is locked at the nut so the strings wont be thrown out of tune as easily, while the bigsby or any other wammy or tremelo will usually throw the strings out of tune unless you have really good or locking tuners
