i have the epiphone explorer with a standard bridge and all. i love this guitar and not looking to buy a new guitar that come with a whammy bar attached. i dont have much of a preference of what kinda whammy bar i get, though i hear bigsbys and floyd roses are the way to go. anyway, what kind of financial damage am i gonna have to go through to get one on my explorer. thanks

i play alotta different stuff like typical metal and classic rock and punk. but im really gettin into writing some real progressive stuff, where i feel id be able to incorporate a whammy bar a bit

after lookin through different whammy bars some more, im leaning towards a bigsby. im trying to do some divebombs, just some nice vibrato

With a Stetsbar you take out the bridge posts and stick it on. No routing necessary.

A Bigsby is more for subtle vibrato like you hear in country and blues, not quite what one wants for rockin' out.

Stetsbars fit into the current hole pattern of you TOM..I am not sure about Bigsbys though.
#15
does anyone know how much a bigsby installation would cost. because one their cheaper than a stetsbar, and 2 im a little iffy about doin it myself and then ****in it up haha

You CAN'T **** up installation of a Stetsbar. All you do is take off your guitar's bridge and stoptail, remove the posts and then stick in the Stetsbar.
