Anybody know how much that would cost because it's the one thing that'd be missing from an SG, which is what might keep me from buying it. Thanks

it depends on what type of whammy bar you want, if you get a Floyd Rose or a classic tremelo you'll have to rout the body. I might be wrong but I don't think you need to modify the body to install a Bigsby so it won't cost as much to install.

Yeah I shoulda specified I don't need a Floyd Rose just a normal one.

bigsby was in the era of beatles and before, those tremolo chords and stuff. Not divebombs for gods sake

Bigsby - Drill holes - Subtle Vibrato
Floyd Rose - Take a big chunk out of your guitar, crazy divebombs etc.
Trem - A bit of routing too, and considerably less range than FR, but less work
kahler - not sure
Stetsbar - No mods needed. But costs lots of $$$$$$$$

SG's are too skinny for a traditional trem with a full sized block. There are FR/Kahler models that topmount to guitars with no mods, but they are rare and expensive; hardly worth the trouble. You have a couple options: Vibrola/Bigsby - prolly get one for <$100, easy installation, good for slight vibrato, maybe a full step and a half if you really abused it. Or the Stetsbar, which as I understand is a couple hundred bucks, but it has no modifications to the guitar, I hear they are top quality though. StewMac also has a tremolo that fits in place of your stop-tail for about $100, but no idea on quality.

Epi G-400 Maestro.

Comes with a trem on it already and runs at about $500.
