Well the Bigsby is like a strat trem, you have to bring it back to its original position, not rely on it to spring back by itself. I've played about a dozen Artcores with Bigsbys and haven't had a problem with any of them staying in tune. My only issue with the Artcores is that on some of them (due to poor quality control I would imagine) the neck pitch seems to be a bit off, creating too shallow a breaking angle between the tailpiece and bridge, which results in strings popping out of the saddle if you pick too hard or bend too much. That's why I've played so many, just looking for the right one. Haven't bought one yet but getting close.
