Sacrilege but... anyone put a bigsby on a concord?

Post by RitchieL on Fri Mar 07, 2014 5:40 am

Hi all,

I'm new here and, sorry to come in with a probably contentious topic but... has anyone installed a bigsby trem on a concord I?

I was thinking that the space below the bridge is decent enough for it to look pretty cool.

so

i) Has anyone done it?

ii) Does the scale length, bridge or through-body stringing cause any major issues.

Thank you!

Ban the blasphemer! Mad

Are there any less intrusive Bigsby-ish options? Without holes drilled into the top?

I have heard of the vibramate (which isn't anything saucy but more a bigsby seat)...

Not sure if any of those would work or which:

not allowed to post a link yet but I'm sure you could find the website if keen.

Yup B5...if you must.
But I would seriously reconsider. If you still want to go ahead have a look at the Vibramate which allows installing without driving screws into the body.

The trem would be worth more than the guitar...Laughing

I'd also change the pups to some decent one's.
