I also added Sperzel locking tuners. Previously added a chambered Compton brass bridge. Much better tuning stability and plays more solid. I'm happy!
Nice. Was it a direct swap? I ordered a tail piece for a guild, from nd they said it was a direct swap. Has it not been for the redrilling of two holes, i t would have been. So I sent it back. Always wanted one on my hotrod but don’t want to make additional holes.
I took it to my luthier and he had to drill holes. The tailpiece had three holes, the bigsby had two. He said it was easy.
Looks nice, glad you like it. I like the other mods too.
Looks good, big fan of the 'G' tail piece myself , looks very classy.
I tend to go the other way, and slap a Bigsby on anything that doesn't have one.
Very nice, love the Compton and the tailpiece looks sweet but I gotta say I would miss the Bigsby.
Works for me as well. I can live without a Bigsby as I'm more of a rhythm guy.
I like the idea and look. I never use a Trem arm on anything.
Is it just me or is the tail piece off center. Strings all appear to be bending to the right after the bridge?
Edit to add: And, the bridge looks like it needs to be even further left to get the Low and Hi E strings the same spacing from the fretboard edges.
Yes, the more I look at it the more I feel your "Luthier " put it in the wrong place.
Even the position in the case, referenced to the two feet at the base of the case, is way off.
On the G5422TG the bridge comes secured and does not move left or right. Here is a picture of the guitar new and out of the case with original bridge and Bigsby.
Same angle off the Bigsby but the first picture was taken at a different angle and makes it look worse. The tailpiece is where it needs to be on this guitar.
Looks great , very classy
