Howdy folks. I'm thinking of getting a (knockoff) bigsby B5 trem for my guitar, and i was just wondering, what's the tuning stability like when using it?

Also, my guitar ain't got the greatest tuning stability as it is, so I was wondering if a set of locking tuners would solve that? I've never replaced tuners, so would I have to be careful about anything other than the diameter of the peg? (to make sure they fit, that is) Tis a 6 in a line headstock, and right handed

Or should I get a locking nut?

Cheers in advance!

A locking nut is far too extreme for a bigsby, don't bother.

A set of locking tuners would do the job fine and are easy to fit (especially if you pick a set designed for the same hole diameter as the ones you've currently got) but I reckon fitting a graphite or bone nut would do the job nicely for about a tenth of the price...

Just in case you didn't know, Bigsby's aren't made for huge bends, just subtle vibrato. A locking nut would be too far. Get a roller bridge, or locking tuners. You might wan't a graphite nut too.

Great, cheers mates

The Bigsby trem I'm looking at comes with a roller bridge anyway, I'll look into a graphite nut too..

That's cool with me, I don't see me using it for anything more anyway

Peace!
