why is it that gibson guitars never have tremelos on thier guitars??!!

besides the fact that theres like a centimetre between the bridge and the neck

has anyone else ever thought about this or have any answers?

I've seen a Gibson SG with a whammy that's non-Bigsby once. I forget who played it, but he's a famous guitarist.. Anyway, it's because they look stupid. There's no other reason.

But some are installed with Bigsby's.. Usually custom made guitars, or ones that had one added on later. They're a pain in the ass, though.. If it didn't make my SG look so cool, I'd remove it. They really don't seem to serve a real purpose, as all you can do with one is vibrato, which you can do with your finger.. And they're loose as a muh fuggah. And if you pull it up too high, the damn spring falls out. Maybe I should crazy glue that spring in there..

Robbie Krieger of the doors had an SG w/ an original gibson trem, which they were produced with for a few years


actually I read this morning that epiphone is introducing a new line w/ FR's

there's a guy that plays guitar in the lounge section of the restaurant i used to work at. he had a white custom les paul (can't remember if it was a gibson or epiphone). it had a custom whammy that he made himself. it was basically a standard tune-o-matic with a bar attached to it. he could only divebomb though

Didn't the ZW Signature V have a Floyd on it? Also, some Firebirds had tremolos on them.

Angus Young?!, He has a tremelo fitted standard (not Bigsby but simular) on at least one of his signature models

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

I dunno, I pretend those don't exist because I think they're unbelievably dorky.
