I think it'll work. Are those top-load bridges or do the strings go through the body?

It might be easier to get a Tele with a Bigsby and put in some single-coil-spaced humbuckers. Just my two cents.

Yes, you can. I can't remember the exact bigsby model, (I want to say B3), but there's one that mounts on the end on the guitar, near the strap button.

Just about all Bigsby models are top loading, I can't think of any that aren't, but knowing guitar players, there probably is one.

EDIT: If the Telecaster is solid, then it's actually a really simple installation, you just have to buy the Bigsby, and the Telecaster. Actually, provided you have the right type of Bigsby for your guitar, it's really simple, just a couple of screws.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

so you want a telecaster with humbuckers and a bigsby, i'd say go with a fender blacktop series and install a bigsby on that.
