    No more tuning issues or heavy weight guitars!

    This thing sounds really good.

    I'm excited about this one as well. If it works as advertised I can have a bigsby on all my teles without giving up the string though body design. Im waiting for some real world reviews as it's pricey.

    The added weight of the real thing is certainly a plus on very light hollow body guitars.

    But I would argue it's not the same thing. For bending strings up or down it's good, but you can't add vibrato like you can with a hand operated unit.

    Who told the “band” that they are all required to look at the camera? (And look as dorky as possible)

    Whenever anyone mentions the weight of Bigsbys I'm always reminded of this:

    Also, imagine the fun time you could have with a Bigsby pedal...whilst playing a guitar fitted with a Bigsby!

    Yes! Through a Rickenbacker with stereo outputs so the bigsbys can reach opposite ends of the sweep at the same time.
