    I'm REALLY wanting a Bigsby on my Tele since I play lots of surf stuff but I'm not very fond of drilling holes in my baby. Are there any vibrato units that don't involve drilling that are worth a crap?

    What type of bridge does your Tele have?

    Vibramute w/ B5 or B50 import.
    Initially, I worried about drilling holes (3?) in the body, then remembered it's a nice partscaster, and many Much more valuable telecasters have survived a couple of small holes. Heck - look at the StewMac vid of Mike Blomfield's tele!

    What’s that old saying? “Go hard or go home?” “Drill baby, drill?” “Surf’s up?”

    Jokes aside, another vote for a vibramate for those non-committal toe-dabblers. The bridge might be a challenge though.
