How difficult and how expensive would it be to install a bigsby in a Fender Tele? I've never done any customization at all, and I'm pretty guitar part illiterate, so bear with me on this one. Would this job be easy enough for me alone to pull it off, or would I need to consult a guitar tech, or would I just need the guitar tech to do it all? Thanks for helping me (if you do).

It wouldnt cost much, and its pretty simple as far as installing goes, so I'd say do it yourself.

And use this model

I suppose it depends on how "much" means to you...I think Bigsby Vibrato systems run up around 90 bucks. Since you're drilling holes in your guitar to do this...And is you haven't done anything like that before...Consulting a guitar tech would be wise. That will make the cost go up a bit more.

Well, not much for a bigsby, some models are expensive, while the one he wants probably isn't as expensive. I dont know about taking it to a tech, I suppose if you have the money and time, take it to a shop, but if you're broke and wanna gain some experience, do it yourself.


And lol at the Bigsby curse. But I would respect this and go for the fender style vibrato unit

I think so, Brain, but where would we buy rubber pants at this hour?
