I have a gibson SG from the 70's. It has a Harmonica Bridge on it.
Do I need to put a tune o matic on it for it to have the maestro?
Or will it work with the harmonica bridge?

It would probably be a very tight squeeze to install a Maestro tailpiece on a Gibson SG with a Harmonica bridge. As long as you have the clearance, though, it will work just fine. Alex Lifeson's Custom ES-355 TDSV has a Maestro tailpiece and a harmonica bridge.

Take a look at this picture and decide if you have enough clearance with the harmonica:

As I recall, it is about one inch deep.

i just measured the distance and it would be a close fit and could possibly be touching the maestro at the top low E where its closest to it and may also be in the way when you depress the maestro. i would say put the maestro on but be prepared to have to install a T-o-M bridge cause the harmonica bridge just may be too big.
