Well, I've been wanting to 'Mod' my guitar for a while now, but I was just wondering if these things were possible or worth investing. So I have a few questions.

First of all, my guitar is an " 06 Epiphone Les Paul Custom", I bought it for $1000AU.

I was talking to my guitar teacher today about getting a Floyd rose on it what it would require and he told me I'd be much better off with a bigsby, he knows someone who is a very highly skilled guitar luthier, he told me that he could install a bigsby on it and correctly balance it. So...

- What are the pros and cons with bigsbys?

- Can you change the tuning of the guitar (say tune half a step down or more) without altering the setup of the bigsby?

Also, I've wondering is it possible at all to get parts cut away to have fret access like the Gibson Les Paul Axcess or would it not be possible cause of the design?

Thanks

P.S. I know I've already posted this in the electric guitar forum but I felt it would make more sense to be posted in here, if I'm breaking rules I will delete the thread in the other forum.

It's AU don't forget, oh well, I bought it at a local music shop and it was $200 off what they had it at, I think it was worth it anyway, just about as good as the real thing.

The things you want to do to it aren't really worth it, i think a new guitar would be better.

Why? The guitar is almost everything I want, tell me one I buy with the modifications I just mentioned cheaper than the actual cost of the modifications.

Get it, you won't be disappointed, the only issue you might have is that it doesn't stay in tune or it has too much bass but the tone is huge and thick.
