any opinions on adding a bigsby bridge to my left-handed mexican telecaster.

also are there any opinions on upgrading the pickups on my gibson usa faded flying v?
i find the stock pickups are lacking when i try to play heavier music ie megadeth but i still want to be able to play blue/classic rock

ya theres actually special tele conversion kits on ebay, i dunno whats so special about them, but yes it shouldnt be too hard. just be sure you get the right model, B5 or B50.

and as for v replacement pickups, i agree with zapatista, look at your gear, maybe you dont have the right distortion pedal or built in distortion. but if u end up getting new pickups, im putting a dimarzio super distortion in the bridge of my firebird build, supposedly very good for a lot of styles. and i play metallica, lamb of god, led zeppelin, ac/dc, van halen, etc. so i suggest something like that, and then maybe just a plain old PAF or something a little heavier than that for the neck spot. im using a dimarzio SCHB, which is discontinued

I've got a Gibson Faded Flying V and I think the pickups sound great for Megadeth and similar styled bands. What amp are you using? If you really want to change them Dave used the Seymour Duncan JB (bridge) & Jazz (neck) up until recently when he switched to his signature Seymour Duncan Live Wire active pickups.
