anyone ever added a bigsby to their Les Paul?

    Glad you did it? Or, regret it?

    I didn't but a friend of mine put one on his black beauty and loved it. Might be worth considering something like a Les Trem or equivalent to see if it's really what you want before you start drilling holes. I've never used one myself so no endorsement here, but they've been around awhile and I'm sure there are other versions of something similar. You can see them here and I think Elderly sells them as well;

    I did to my Edwards LP, am loving it. Of course I dont have pics, which makes this post useless.

    The Les Trem seems like it would work really nicely. But for style points, the bigsby was the only way to go for me.
