I had a B5 put on my G400 and do admit it took a little getting used to. I still have a little trouble changing the strings but the eraser trick really helped! Mine doesn't seem to have as much action as my Meastro or a Fender Strat whammy... but it works for what I need. :thumb:

That Pelham blue Les Paul/SG Junior with the Bigsby , that's a mighty fine SG, there.
Mighty fine!
