NONE of the LP-ES Bigsby installations were reversible, well invisibly anyway. They ALL screwed to the top, look them up at Reverb, there are only two or three, all have two screws in the top.

A Bigsby B7 has two screw holes. If they're not used, then that's OK BUT the baseplate screw holes will ALWAYS be there, no?


You are absolutely incorrect with regard to the Vibramate & B-7 Bigsby. No holes. Completely reversible. Gibson told me it would not void the Warranty for those very reasons. I've got that Setup on mine & have sent it to Gibson Factory for Warranty Repsir. No issues!

Some of you ****ers like to argue for the sake of argument don't you.

A factory B7 will be screwed to the very strong and ample maple top.


A LP-ES is an ES, it actually only "RESEMBLES" a Les Paul. The top on the is NOT SOLID MAPLE it's LAMINATED, AKA PLYWOOD... P-L-Y-W-O-O-D (see links below) get it? Just like any other ES, it's laminated (without a FULL center block) with a nice but thin "arched" presumably pressed maple skin on top. No git maker with any brains will screw a Trem to a plywood top without a center block and have some player wanking on it. That's why Bigsby developed the B6, for "hollow bodies".

Well the pic on the Bigsby site for the B7, shows TWO holes drilled in the top and four in the base plate. What are you looking at? And the OP asked " a Bigsby or Bigsby type' Not a vibra mate. You're welcome for the reading interpretation lesson.

I think the suggested solution from this thread had included the vibrate, as to avoid drilling. Not sure what exactly you are getting at with your response???

It's not about Reading 101???????? What is this Kindergarten????

I offered up a way to have a proper Bigsby B-7 on the OP's ES Les Paul. Which includes the use of a Vibramate... There are 2 components. The Vibramate & the Bigsby B-7. The installation requires no drilling, cutting or anything invasive to the Guitar. It's Clean, Simple, looks Factory & does what it supposed to do as only a Bigsby can do...

It is completely reversible...

If you don't know about the Vibramate look it up!!!!

Why are you responding to this Thread when you have nothing to offer. Certainly nothing constructive.
