Anyone have any experience with these? Thinking about putting one on a Tele. Looks like you can mount one without altering the body... Sometimes I feel like wanking ;)

I installed one on my LP Tribute. There are no alterations to the guitar. The installation was quick and easy and worked as advertised. It's a good system.

The Tele version mounts to the strap button on the butt end of the body.<br /> <br /> A Bigsby does not have the pitch range of a typical Fender or similar vibrato, but you can get really nice shimmers and wobbles with 'em. <br /> <br /> If you don't use a roller bridge, use just a touch of lube in the saddles' string slots. It goes a long way to preventing string breakage and keeping things in tune. Same goes for the nut slots and string tree.
