Can you fit a bigsby trem onto a fixed bridge artcore

I love the artcore ag86 in transred but kind of want a bigsby trem, espcially the one with the thin bar. If I could buy the ag86 and fit the trem on that would be perfect. I know there are other artcores that have ibanez's bigsby style trem but I don't like any of them near as much as the AG86 trans red. Any ideas? Would this be fairly easy to do or complicated? Thanks guys.

Re: Can you fit a bigsby trem onto a fixed bridge artcore

My bandmate has this guitar, and plays it, onstage, regularly. You should be able to install the Bigsby, with no problem, on this. Really a matter of removing the stock tailpiece, and installing the Bigsby tailpiece, in it's place. Just make sure to get the right model Bigsby. I personally prefer the AF75D, in orange, and they don't make it with a trem, so I was gonna get one, and do what you are talking about. Just a note: The ibanezes that have the Bigsby-style trem have roller bridges. The one without, don't. So, you may have to change out the bridge-piece, also, to the roller-bridge. Otherwise, tuning might suffer, with trem usage.
