does the bigsby stay in tune as good as the origional setup, and is the action as good too
Hey guys I have an epi les paul that I'm thinking about putting a bigsby on. All of my other guitars have tremolos on them and I miss having a trem when I play my LP.
I'm assuming the bigsby on stevefried's black les paul is a B70?
And the one on dennistruckdriver's gold LP is a B30?
And I'm pretty sure you have to do drilling on the top for the B70 and not B30?
If I end up putting on a bigsby I'll prob get some locking tuners and a graphite nut and saddles so I don't think tuning will be a problem...but what about SUSTAIN? Thats what I'm afraid of losing if I put on the bigsby. How much different is it from the stop tail? Will the sound be changed at all?
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated! :]
im thinking of a graphtech nut for my LP when i decide to get a bigsby or not cause the whole low E string corner is just gone. also what year is your LP dennis
That is about right. Not much range, but nothing sounds so silky and liquid like a Bigsby!what is the range on a bigsby? I've heard its about +/- one half step
