I was thinking about having a tremolo on my Epiphone SG. I dont like most tremolo bridges except the wilkinson and prs's. So could I put a Wilkinson trem on an Epiphone SG?

the problem with SG's and trems is that SG's are so thin. And getting one to work would take a lot of extra prepartion and measuring. I wanna say this has been done before with something similar but im not sure.

Might wanna look into a vibrato or something

If you're looking into a top mounted trem, you're never gonna get the kind of dive bombs or pull up range that something like a Floyd Rose has. And then there's tuning instability...

If you want a good guitar with a good trem, look at a different guitar. Putting a routed trem like a Kahler on an SG is way expensive.

haha i don't care then.


i set up my CIJ's tremolo so it stays tune and float. so i've been doing some jeff beck stuff lately.
