Hi, I was wondering if anybody else has come upon this problem.

I'm looking into buying this Epi Les Paul

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-Limited-Edition-Les-Paul-Custom-Classic-Antique?sku=581253

and routing it for a third pickup and adding a gold bigsby to make it look more like Jimmy Page's Les Paul Custom.

But i'm noticing that there might be a problem in the spacing of putting the bigsby, because i've noticed all the bigsby's on les paul's,

go directly on top of where the stop bar tailpiece on the Epiphone would go.


Am i wrong? If not, would I have enough room to move it back or to move it closer to the bridge? Or would I be stuck

I'd say you're seeing the wrong thing. Looks to me like that bar on the bigsby (the one that pulls the strings down) is exactly where the bridge (which you would take off anyway) goes, and i'd say you'll have enough room. Maybe I'm seeing the wrong thing, though, but it looks good to me.

Maybe you should just buy the 3PU Epi and slap the Bigsby on. It'll save you a whole lot of hassle. If you don't I think you shouldn't have any issues.
