Might as well ask about this one too

Anyone know what kind of bridges these are?
Bigby. They're an old style tremolo.

One word:

The bridge is I think a normal Paul style bridge, while it's only the tail piece thats wierd and different. It's called a Bigsby vibrato arm. Just a vintage tremolo. A tailpiece that can change pitch.

Good. The world needs more of you.
IMO the do a better job of looking nice than thier function. all you can get (this should be obvious) is a little bit of flutter here and there, can't go that far in either way, not saying you have to with a LP, and from my experiance go out of tune relitively quickly.
The bridge type is an old archtop type, kinda like a violin bridge in that the strings hold it to the body. The tailpiece is, as mentioned before, a Bigsby vibrato.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
I love my Bigsby's. I've had no tuning issues

Wow, I didn't know that the bigsby was considered the bridge... Not the tremolo/tailpiece you bafoons, THE BRIDGE!

I don't think it's a normal LP style bridge, isn't that a tune o matic? Those are definitely not ToM's in those guitars.

It was answered in post #7 you twat. The entire assembly is referred to as the bridge. If you actually included anything in your post other than the pictures, maybe someone would have been able to ascertain what you were talking about.
