i dont think it should, but you never know. I've played guitars with similar type tremelos, and as long as you dont do any serious dive bombs on the first day, and let the strings stretch out for a while by pulling it up every few minutes and retuning, it should be fine.

I wouldn't mind playin this one, it would be perfect for jazz.

yeah it was pretty sweet. The guys in the shop were all like you should try a strat. so i did. I tried about 5 guitars and i could have played that one all day. It has the humbuckers to get gritty, nice top fret accessibility. Now i have to get £700!

Strange, kinda looks like a rickenbacker



My first thought as well.


As far as the trem goes, I haven't heard of cases where properly installed Bigsby were causing all kinds of tuning problems (keep in mind they're made for light vibrato, not to lift the guitar up by the bar).

I've never tried any, but they look good. my nearest Guitar Guitar has a few Duesenbergs in which look good. I think I might have heard somebody a while ago playing one, but I'm not too sure, but it sounded good.

The person you're thinking about is probably the Chinese Pro tools abuser known as Herman Li.



By the way, whilst pulling of crazy whammy bar stunts might look kickass, nothing spells "cool" like some subtle Bigsby vibrato:

(I know it's not a Bigsby but he does have that lovely nice vibrato on the chords after the first theme)

That's very true.

Some whammy stuff can be a nice touch, but moderation is the key. Also, not that it should matter, but a Bigsby has the abbility to make almost any guitar look like some kind of cool vintage or reissue instrument.
