They are completely different things.
If I'm not mistaken, Bigsby's are only used for vibrato purposes whilst Floyds are for crazier stuff, just look at EVH.

both have pros and cons, floyds are a major pain in the ass to restring and maintain bigsbys have more subtle and have tuning stability issues. Also, they tend to come on two different types of guitars, you generally don't see a guitar geared for shred with bigsbys, and I've never seen a semihollow with a floyd (I don't even think you could feasibly do that anyway)

I would go for the floyd rose. you can use this just like you would use a bigsby + all the crazy things you can do with it.

myth busted, they arent a pain in the arse at all it merely takes a little longer to restring and maintain a floyd and i'm talking not even a 50% time increase on a hardtail guitar after you've done it once.

bigsby's only really provide vibrato and so on which is what the fingers on your left hand are for.

floyds are for otherwise unattainable divebombs and all that kinda crap which is pretty awesome.

only other thing to note is that while a did say floyds arent a pain in the arse, they are quite a hassle if you want to change the tuning of your guitar often so keep that in mind

of the two i would have to pick the floyd. but if i could choose any type of vibrato i would go for a two point wilkinson synchronized.

You may not think it's a pain, but a lot of people do, so cut the "myth busted" crap.

and bigsbys can do vibrato on chords, which is really really hard and sometimes impossible to do wit your fingers, plus that can do a wider vibrato than most people can normally do.

can't beat the Ibanez ZR Trem


Too true! It's heavenly! Easier then a FR.

I use my hand for my vibrato, so a Bigsby is generally useless for me, whereas a floyd can do what a bigsby does and more.

just to add to that you cant do vibrato on harmonics with your left hand
