Well, practically speaking, with only one volume and one tone knob, you won't have to worry about too many knobs hiding under the Bigsby's arm. And the Bigsby will definitely keep it from being neck heavy...

Its simplicity is part of its beauty, prof, but if a Bigsby is how you roll, go for it.

Whaddaya mean, "IF you liked a Bigsby"???

Who doesn't like a Bigsby? (;^D)

(please note the smiley face, all you Bigsby-hatin' heathens)


Personally, I think a Bigsby would look awesome on that guitar.

I think you should put a Floyd on it.

Not my cup of tea on an LP. Set up and actual performance can be an issue. (tuning)

I prefer a guitar with straight string angle over the nut and less headstock angle than with a Paul.

I have a Tele I built with a Bigsby and like it.

I wouldn't go drillen' holes in that thang.

That guitar is too pretty for a bigsby, but everybody has their own idea of what is cool.

No drilling with the Vibramate. Easy on, easy off. If I don't like it I'll put it on the SG.

If I go Floyd I'll also rout out some room for active pickups, do my own custom paint job using tape zig zags and black Krylon for a black and gold EVH effect, and top it off with a custom pickguard.

bitchin'!

Your profile already shows a half dozen Bigsby guitars including a P-90 LP. The difference is the one you already have has the pickup selector switch up high where it belongs. The LP/DC has the switch right where a Bigsby would be in the way of using it.

I was wondering about that. The bigsby arm does stick out though, so it shouldn't make contact. I'll measure to be sure about clearance.

Love that guitar! I'd leave it the way it is, personally.

My Photoshop skills are non existent, but that's never stopped me trying.

Yes, I know the B5 is a bit too small and the angle's wrong, and..........

There it is.

If I liked a Bigsby, I might try and put one on the doorbell.

It's your guitar.

That's like asking for a consensus if you should add salt and pepper to something.

Whenever I've considered doing a mod to a guitar of mine, I either do it or I don't. The opinions of others matter this much:

One positive: when that guitar is covered in weather checking and has worn edges and a green patina and someone pulls the Bigsby off, it will leave a really cool gold Bigsby silhouette on the guitar.

Do what I did with my ES-335 and Tele and go with a STETSBAR tremolo. No holes required and it is the best trem I've ever used.
