So, foolish question but for someone adding a Bigsby or similar vibrato to a string through Tele, do people plug the through holes? Leave them open? Hide your Tictacs?

Or is adding a vibrato to a string through Telecaster generally verboten?

I just leave everything - screw holes, through holes - you name it. If myself or anyone ever wants to remove the Bigsby, the work is already done.

Last I checked, I think they also have humbucker plates, too.
I can’t believe I never saw that! I guess it’s been about three years since I looked, I wonder how long ago they came out with that? I almost went with the Vibramate kit but I didn’t want to deal with potential neck shims. I would rather drill holes than worry about that 😂
