You can't buy those vibrola trems outside of Gibson/Epiphone factories from what I've seen actually unless you pick up a second hand one on ebay.

Try a Bigsby or a Schaller:

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

That looks like a Maestro Vibrola. They were common on vintage SGs and Melody Makers. Most of them were plain, without the ornate embossing in the tailpiece. They aren't that wonderful. They tend to go out of tune easily / not return to the tuned pitch every time. I don't think they're available new.

I'd suggest a Bigsby, but if you're convinced that's what you want, knowing that it's a Maestro might help you locate one.

Cheers,

EDIT: The ones in the link SGstriker posted look like a very good replica. I doubt they're authorized by Gib$on, but they appear to be a convincing copy.

Vibrolas are very rare and I doubt they even make them anymore. Speaking of which, how rare is a '58 SG and how much are they worth? I know a guy who found his Dad's under the floorboards is his attic. He doesn't fully know what he has and I'm gonna try to buy it.

That '58 SG sounds like a fake to me. I would be very careful before offering any money for it. Are you sure it's a Gibson? Are you sure it's a '58?

Thats a Maestro/Gibson vibrola. They pop up on ebay sometimes. I want one, though I'm gonna try my hand at building a TOM tremolo myself.
