Is it possible to install a wammy bar on a Les Paul Standard?

I have a Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar and I want to install a wammy bar on it. Is it possible, and is there an easy way to do it???

Re: Is it possible to install a wammy bar on a Les Paul Standard?

It is possible...if you're an experienced luthier. If not then you will be paying an experienced luthier good money...and he will tell you it's not worth it. By the time you add up the cost for parts and labor you could just buy a guitar with a tremolo factory installed. Plus if you're using a Gibson/Epiphone Les Paul the neck is angled when it is joined to the body, that means your bridge has to sit higher than on a standard strat type guitar...this makes it a little more difficult. If you like the Paul sound and look then budget some money for something constructed from the same woods (Schecter), with the trem that you want, and you'll get a similar sound.

they do make bigsby tail pices for a les paul but i realy dont know how to install it. it would be somethig to look into thoe.

Re: Is it possible to install a wammy bar on a Les Paul Standard?

Cheap and somewhat effective is an item called a Bowen Handle. It's a replacement bridge for Gibson Les Paul or L6S that is a rocker type bridge with a whammy bar. You'll need to tune often between every couple songs if your playing live, and you can't get those NightRanger and EVH dive bombs, but it only costs about $20. No luthier experience needed. Then save up and buy a guitar with a Floyd in a couple years with locking nuts etc.

Well, I don't know if I would install a wammy on a Les Paul simply for estetic reasons. I have seen LPs with Floyd Rose and Khaler (do they still make those?) but it involves routing the guitar, which I would not do. I have found that Arch Top solid bodies don't respond as well to Wammys as opposed to a flat-top solid like a strat. I think if it worked well, Gibson would have done it by now. I would advise against it. And definetly stay away from the BOWEN Handel if you ever want you guitar to stay in tune again.

Good Luck

need to know bridge adjustments

Would raiseing the bridge of a guitar or lowering it make a big difference if so which one would be good for playing what type of music.

Re: need to know bridge adjustments

Raise it as high as possible for rock/metal, lower for country, in the middle for pop

: Would raiseing the bridge of a guitar or lowering it make a big difference if so which one would be good for playing what type of music.

Re: need to know bridge adjustments

The higher(most problematic) or lower you put the bridge it from where it was set at the guitar shop may result in it going out of tune as you climb the neck. A good guitar tech can reset it at whatever height and string guage you wish so it will stay in tune all the way up. When you raise(mostly) or lower the bridge you are actually making the strings longer or shorter and therefore changing the harmonic location at the twelth fret. The exact distance between the nut and the twelth and the twelth and the bridge needs to be identical or you lose your tuning, ie, the harmonic location. Like I said, a good guitar tech can set you up nicely.

jimmy hendrix's last concert ticket

I have two Bronzed Jimmy Hendrix concert tickets from his first and his last concerts.are they worth anything?

Re: jimmy hendrix's last concert ticket

Re: jimmy hendrix's last concert ticket

I doubt it, probally fake as nobody would bronze them and ruin the original anyways, hey I could bronze a piece of paper too

: I have two Bronzed Jimmy Hendrix concert tickets from his first and his last concerts.Are they worth anything?

No...........

Especially if they're spelled Jimmy Hendrix, since it's spelled JIMI Hendrix.

No, they're not worth anything. Only the original paper versions would be worth cash.

kurt cobain guitar

why wasnt Kurts custom jag-stang left handed?

Re: kurt cobain guitar

it was but when they mass produced it they fliped it so right handed people can play it

Re: kurt cobain guitar

: why wasnt Kurts custom jag-stang left handed?

Because his first guitar was a bass and it was right handed. His dad would make him use his right hand.Then he took a jaguar and a mustange , cut it in half and layed the pictures next to each other and it came out to be a right handed

Re: kurt cobain guitar

every one is right handed

Re: kurt cobain guitar

thats right oscar, everyone IS right handed, aren't they?

Re: kurt cobain guitar

: why wasnt Kurts custom jag-stang left handed?

Kurdts in utero guitar is by far his best 1

Re: kurt cobain guitar

Because he made his only left handed. Most people in America are right handed so he made a majority right handed ones. He did make some left handed ones though. To answer your question.

Re: kurt cobain guitar

: i love every thig about kurt

1977 Takamine C-132S

Basically in mint condition except for about 4 small dents. Has been in the case for 22 years of its life. Originally purchased for around $200. If someone could give me an estimate on its value it'd be great. Date stamped on inside is Sept. 12, 1977.
