I own a 330 with a Bigsby and have owned an SG with a Lyre.

Based on my limited experience, I would select the Bigsby over the Lyre every single time. In my view, Lyres are barely functional pieces of hardware and frequently have a catastrophic effect on the tuning stability of guitars. Even if they function correctly, they don't have the range that a Bigsby does and are nowhere near as smooth.
