    If I was you (and I'm not!), I would just leave that dude as he is, and play the heck out of it. He looks complete as is. But then, I'm not a big Bigsby fan. I like guitars that stay locked in tune, and as good at guitar setups as I am, I have never mastered the art of Bigsby setups.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    Idk man, I just want some kinda tremolo. I've always been a rythem player, but lately I've been getting into theory, and soloing, and all that good stuff. I have to say I'm adapting quick. Although synyster gates is a big influence, but his solos use a lot of trem. I guess I should wait until I'm a much higher level

    OK, but Synyster is a big Floyd Rose guy. You can't do FR stunts with a Bigsby! I'm not trying to put down your dream, just callin' it like I see it.

    Oh, of course, the truth is always the best way to go. But I'd like to at least do a couple of bends. Really I'm just goin' with my budget. I think I've mostly given up the bigsby type trem. I'm either gonna go with the Stetsbar, or a Floyd. Ya think a regular tech would be able to do the routing? If they've got a router that is

Those would look mighty ugly under the bigsby. I also looked at the stetsbar, but those are wayyyyyyy expensive, at least on my budget.
    I have a stetsbar on a Les Paul and it is totally different than playing with a Bigsby. It stays in tune even with larger frequent bends and you can bend up and down. Bigsbys work great with subtle bends in my experience

    Stetsbars donít need routing. Itís all on top.
