The only think good about the SG Vibrola is that it helps balance an unbalanced guitar. Otherwise, it's a cheap and crap design that functions poorly, though a few people will claim, possibly truthfully, that theirs works. Bigsbys are fantastic for effects that sound like a Bigsby (heh heh, that is, retro) but are also poor designs that most users cannot maintain well. If I relied on trem a lotg, I would be using a Strtat, not my beloved SG, as the only sound approach to vibrato on an SG involves hacking up the body to install a real vibrato system, and I would not do that. My main ASG is an 87 Reissue 61 SG/LP Custom (the 3 PU model) which is happily a hardtail. If I need vibrato, I can just flext the neck...
