You know you can edit posts right? Get locking tuners(ie sperzels) and any trem will be good, provided you want to go to the work of putting it in. main downside about trems is guitar going out if tune, but if the tuners are good, it should be ok. if you want to put a Bigsby and new tuners on an epiphone, go ahead, but I wouldn't. I'd get a tremolo pedal. It can be used with any guitar, doesnt require modding the guitar body, wont put guitar out of tune and works just as well, or better, than any trem.

I'd recommend some locking tuners with that as well

you can put on the bigsby no problem. you just need to drill the holes to screw down the tremolo. you need the B-5 model, which is made for solid body flat top guitars. if your string height is higher than it was before, take it to a pro shop go get the neck shimmed cause you need to change the neck angle slightly. i did it to my telecaster

EDIT: a bigsby is cheaper than that ^

Probably, but it'll require a little less work.

im gonna try....i really like the vintage look of my SG, and i was thinking that a Bigsby tailpeice would look pretty kickass...

i know...its an epi..... but my parents go it for me.....and im gonna make it as good as itll get, b/c im never selling it.....

im only 13 BTW, i dont see why people think us younger people dont know anything about guitars....hell....

Page ORIGINALLY played a Gibson Black Beauty, but it got stolen....sadly....

hence, he bought a (i think, not sure what kind of burst) Sunburst Les Paul.....

and for certain songs he used a black guitar (in which i cant think of the name at the time), that had 2 sigle coil pickups.....not like a strats, but they were blade shappish....

and of course, the Gibson 1275 VOS Double Neck for stairway......


NEVER underestimate the power of youth.....

#15

Learn to make thread titles please. And "the Pit" is not really the right forum for this. And if you really want to use it a lot, i'd still get a O. Floyd Rose, but that might just be me.

we have forums for the discussion of guitars, and even a specific one for customising guitars. go ask there please, the pit is not the place for it.
