Bigsbys and string tension


Recommended Posts

Friends, I'm thinking of fitting a B7 on my Les Paul Custom via the Vibramate device. I've done it years ago on my old Studio Faded and I remember string tension slinkier than my other Les Paul was at the time, but can't say definitively if that was due to the Bigsby. I like my tension a little stiffer so anything that will slacken it would not be ideal. Is this a symptom of having a Bigsby? Do you think the Vibramate spoiler might help alleviate that possibility because it would shorten string length?
