    So I’ve read, one of the differences between a Gibson & Epiphone SG, is that all he dimensions on the Epiphone are ‘metric’, & the Gibson obviously ‘imperial’. So would a Gibson ‘lyre’ tremolo, fit on the Epiphone without too much trouble??? Re drilling holes etc etc???!!!

    I've not tried it, but I have to say that the functionality of my Epi branded "lyre" is as good or a little better than the Gibson in terms of range.

    No problem but prefer a Vibrola clone for your Epi.

    The Epiphone ones are not the easiest to purchase where I am, & gotta send overseas to get one, & with shipping ain’t cheap. Gibson one easiest to get locally!!!
