I am thinking of putting a Bigsby on my SG. What are the pros and cons? I hear that they increase sustain. Is this true?

I said no. I've never seen the point of those stiff vintage tremolos. Might be my shredder mentality, but if you can't get that smooth, wide vibrato from it, it's like what's the point? Also, If I'm not mistaken, Bigsby's cause a lot of tuning problems, don't they?

As long as you've got a good pair of tuners and some sort of lubricated nut (that could be as simple as rubbing pencil lead in the slots for the strings), you shouldn't have any real tuning problems.

And yeah, it's a more limited vibrato effect than, say, a Floyd Rose or a Kahler, but you can't fit those on an SG anyway.

I'd say it's worth getting.

It won't be a wide vibrato, but some simple, smooth vibrato (probably a semitone up or down) is definitely possible.

I think Maestro vibratos look better on SG's than Bigsbys.
