This is my first encounter with Bigsby. I come from the world of floating Strat trem (D Gilmour style playing) I've been wanting to install a Bigsby B5 (chigsby in this case) to my Tele using the 3 saddle trad bridge for light tremolo use (no dive bombs etc), so no shimming of the neck needed but without changing the looks of the ashtry, so just drilling holes on the back of the Wilkinson compensated saddle bridge. The chigsby's spring lets the arm sit real high, will need some work there - I cut it to just under 1" for now, might lower it to 7/8" later, but seems much better now double measure CL, measure again, drill. as close to the bridge as possible for a good break-over angle from the saddles drilling back face of the bridge to keep the ashtray look intact I knew adding a Bigsby complicates a guitar setup a great deal and many people advise against adding a Bigsby, so I knew this going in!! My experience so far....Don't be fooled. re-stringing the guitar is painful, but doable and it does complicate things. Quick intonation setting of the saddles, forget it. Unless you make a special phillips head tool, you ain't getting any type of screwdriver head to those screws. I thought those little multi-tool tips would fit....it doesn't, so I had to set the saddles by hand - it's a pain! Make sure the new holes allows free movement of the strings I'm pretty happy with the result though. I've got new strings on so they're still stretching, but it seems that I get relatively good tuning stability. greasing all the touch points of the strings. One issue though - the saddles move slightly under tremolo use, it seems like the e/B saddle "jumps" slightly causing a slight "pinging" sound some times. I filed the break-over edges of the saddle slightly for the 2 strings which helped a bit - with these saddles there is a sharp edge as oppose to a round barrel Any further thoughts?
