I don't want to drill the headstock.

I was thinking about breaking off the threaded section on the gold Grovers I have and...
I have this 74 SG Special with Gibson Bigsby,which I never use and am thinking of removing.
It looks like a stop bar tail will be too far back if I fit one and use the Bigsby screw holes.A ligjtening bolt bridge looks like it will need new post holes.

I know this should be in the "vintage" section,but theres a massive crossover with these guitars .Is this a 69? No made in USA stamp or dot over the "I".I thought goof hiders were later then this.
