Hi everybody, I am looking to buy a new guitar and I have been considering the 61 Gibson SG with SIDEWAYS VIBROLA and or MAESTRO VIBROLA. I do not have access to try these models because I can not find a music store in my area (small city in Europe) that has them in stock. I can only order them online from Germany or Italy and shipping back the guitar is minimum 100 Euros ~= 115 USD. I have seen some pretty bad reviews but I have never had the chance to try one myself. It has been said that the VIBROLAS work better with .10 or .11 strings... Does anyone have any experience with these things? Is one better than the other? Are they both crap? Should I just get a Bigsby? (I admit I am a little afraid of color damage to the guitar due to long term Bigsby installation...) Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated.
