I've had a Bigsby B7 installed on my LP for a couple of years already, proved to be a real pain and took me a lot of time, money and reading up to get all the nonsense like tuning right. Today it works just fine, stays in tune great and overall I'm quite happy. I don't use it that often, and when I do its mostly for chords as its a really subtle thing. It all changed when I saw Joe Bonamassa play Dust Bowl live and he had his signature Goldtop with a B7 Bigsby on it. The way he used the Bigsby was really beyond anything I could ever imagine or dream of. He was getting all sorts of Beck-ish sounds with the Bigsby on single notes, chords, everything. I could never ever pull off sounds like that on my guitar. Further more it looked effortless to him. For me to get a full step down I need to depress the bar down so hard till it touches my pickguard. Is there something wrong with my Bigsby? Perhaps a abnormally stiff spring or something? Because I'll be honest, I've never played a Bigsby equipped guitar other than my own.
