    Hey guys. Have been offered a reverend slingshot custom in a gear trade. It has a hardtail bridge but was wondering if I could add a bigsby to it? I've never seen or played the guitar so I wanted to ask the guys here who have actual experience with it. Is it a tele or strat type hard tail bridge? If it's like the tele, would a bigsby tele conversion kit fit on the guitar? THanks

    I don't think you can add a Bigsby because the hardtails are lacking the wooden block running through the middle that Bigsby equipped models had.

    there's a company out there that offers a trem bar and tailpiece replacement in one. If I find the link I'll send it to you. That may work for you. It's not a Bibgsy style though.
