Re: Bigsby on an AF125 Artcore Archtop?

It shouldn't be much of a job at all. I've never put a bigsby onto a guitar, but I've taken one off in favor of a bridge closely styled to the one on the AF125. The bigsby on my 1964 Gretsch 6118 did nothing but cause me grief, and I was having stablity issues depending on where I would rest my hand on the bridge. If you're dead set on installing a bigsby, I think it'll be easy, however I wouldn't necessarily recommend it.

Thanks for the reply.
Was aware that Bigsby type trems often have tuning probs.
Was just a whim of an idea.

Maybe you just talked me out of it!
