Unless you want to mod the shit out of it.

Assuming you don't already own the Slash sig, this would be a much easier and more affordable option. If you do own the Slash, consider selling it and buying this or something similar.

What kind of tremolo are you looking at? A Bigsby wouldn't take that much modification.

It's such a cheap guitar that it wouldn't make sense to add a Bigsby to it. I mean, a new Bigsby will cost as much as that guitar costs.

If you want a tremolo bridge, get a guitar that comes with one.

Don't they make the lower priced versions anymore? You used to have the B-5 and then the B-50, which was a lot cheaper. Same thing, just made in China vs made in US, I believe.

I agree that in most cases, it isn't worth it, but if he doesn't have a lot of budget, getting a new guitar with a tremolo maybe isn't an option.

If you really wanted to, you could add a bigsby (I think the v7 is the version for a les paul). If you didn't want to drill any holes you can get a plate from vibramate which screws into your existing tailpiece holes and the bigsby screws into that.

The guitar in question is a special version of the Les Paul Special II, which has a flat top. A B-5 would fit fine and is cheaper IIRC.

A Bigsby B-5 trem is like 150 bucks new. Add in the cost of installation at a shop and that's over 200 bucks. And if you wanted to do a V5 it would be 100 bucks for that. So 250 for a B5-V5 kit minus the install costs.


The guitar is cheaper and costs 200 bucks new. You would be putting the guitar's value back into it just to have a trem. Not to mention if the OP is looking for dive-bombing, pulling up or anything in that sense, the Bigsby won't cut it.


So to answer OPs question, can your guitar in its current state use a trem? No it cannot without modification.

Should you mod it and put a trem on it? I personally wouldn't bother spending the money. With the cash you would be dropping on the trem etc..., you could be half way to a decent guitar with one installed in the first place. I would just start saving and sell your guitar if you really want a trem.
