Well, I was thinking about putting a Bigsby on my strat (don't ask), but frankly, it's a bit overpriced.

...So does anyone know of any copies? I googled it along with several others, but they're either on ebay or don't exist anymore. I'm nowhere near the USA, and I generally dislike ebay so I consider that as a last resort...

Rondo has a Tele with a bigsby, that costs just as much as a genuine Bigsby:

Its just the way its designed its not that cheap to make. There are licensed ones out there. Its gonna be like a FR the original is good some of the licensed ones arent to bad but the noname knock offs are crap. You got a chinese copy and the metal is gonna be garbage and the parts fit will be poor.

Paying $50 for a poorly made copy on the other hand, that would be overpriced. Function to finance ratio.
Well put, sir.

are you insane?
Quite.

Problem is, I don't want to spend more on the trem than on the actual guitar itself. And ontop of that, I don't see how it can fall out of tune, but I can see how it can be made of an inferior metal. Ah well, I guess the Bigsby can come at a later time.
