so its here, so I was starting the installation, I take off my bridge, and the ground wire (I think) is soldered to my bridge. Im not sure if its the ground wire, but im guessing so...its soldered to the underside of my bridge then has a computer chip looking thing going to all my saddles...I dont need this bridge as im putting on the bigsby one, so can I just unsolder this wire? what do i do?

Unsolder it, and then solder it back to your Bigsby bridge. Otherwise, youll get alot of buzzing coming from your pickups, which isnt good.

This isn't related to the Bigsby in particular, but does the ground NEED to be soldered? The ground on my bass is just kind of under it, not soldered.

as long as it is in contact with the bridge it's fine.

might as well solder it, that way it will always have a good connection.

yes, i saw a picture and that is indeed what it looks like, ghost pickups...so this is just like an extra pickup that i didnt know about? also I decided to let a guitar tech do my bigsby, in a city im not from, my mom is dropping off my guitar. will he just take the piezo off?

it is your ground wire, solder it back on itll stop the hiss. make sure your bigsby measures up with your 12th fret and your nut else your intonation will be out and you 'll have a mere tuning. good luck

you're swapping a bridge with ghost saddles for a bigsby?!?!?

i'd kill for a guitar with a piezo.
