            When I can afford it, I will be getting a vibramate for my Palo Escrito Tele and it will be getting Bigsbyfied.

                      Only the one right now.



                      I used to own this, though. I love wire arm Bigsbys.

                        A Bigsby would be cool on your Tele, OP. They work on just about anything that doesn't look especially modern or pointy.

                        Here are my 2 Bigsby gals:

                          Don't do it man. bigspys are great on some guitars, and function really well with them, but You will find with your telecaster the bigspy will look very pleasing to the eye, but change the characteristics of its playability.

                          a former band mate did the same thing with his tele. It looked AWESOME! but within 3 weeks he took it off. and now he has the holes where he drilled it.

                          I dont mean to be contrary, I just would hate to see someone mess up a great guitar

                            If the OP goes the vibramate route this is a non issue. I suggest it because of the concerns you raised above. It will change the guitar BUT, It can be removed with no harm done to the guitar. They look pretty cool too.

                              its fine your not being contray, i wanted negative and positive thoughts from peeps and ive got it.

                              i just thoguht about the idea of it and stuff, but like you said i dont want to ruin that guitar.

                              i might just buy one eventually with it already on, ie gretchs or sommin
