    I am going with all gold hardware and currently have a bigsby licensed B7 and was wondering if I should just save the money and get another licensed model

    I have a licensed on my Elliot Easton Gretsch--works great.

    I've read before that there is not a big difference between the two.

    I've fitted B7s and B70s (and other Bigsby units); my impression is that the B70 is made to a higher standard - the casting is better on the main chassis and it simply seems to fit together better and work more smoothly. The B70 is cheaper, making it a bit of a no-brainer, all things considered.:)
