hey bigsby users of ug, how do bigsbys handle higher gauge strings?
im planning to put a bigsby on my sg (using a vibramate), but i use 11 gauge strings (tuned to standard) will the extra tension mess with the bigsby?

I don't think of 11s as particularly high gauge strings. Keep in mind that Bigsby units are often used on semi-hollow guitars where 12s and 13s are common, even with long scale lengths. It will handle 11s just fine.
