Wondering which Bigsby model would fit best on my 2015 Les Paul Studio. Don't want to drill any holes.

Oof, those short-throw TOM conversions have never been any good. Maybe someone makes a proper one but every single one I've tried so far has been half-assed and disappointing. Of course they are a lot cheaper than a Bigsby but nowhere near the same experience either. No thanks.

A real Bigsby with no drilling is expensive but possible.
You'll need a Vibramate V7-LP:

And a Bigsby B7 (No other model! Not the B70, not the B700, I know they look the same, they're not)

It is not possible to install a Bigsby alone without drilling into a TOM setup, you must use the Vibramate.

If you don't want to drill holes you need the B7 and a Vibramate like Roc8995 said. They install in about 10 minutes with no problem. I just put one on my Epiphone Les Paul 1960 Tribute and it works great. No tuning issues (the guitar however did come with Grover locking tuners). I originally bought the B700 and a Vibramate but the Vibramate won't work on a B700. The holes are in a different configuration. You have to pop for the more expensive B7.

No problem having purchased the B700 because I plan on drilling and putting it on my Epiphone Sheraton.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.
