Drilling out the pins in a Bigsby

I didn,t drill them out , they will pull out . Be careful to pull them straight out . Then drill the holes to size then bevel them . The Bigsby does not respond quite as well but I really like it much better . Maybe I should put another spacer under the spring but for me it is not necessary . Bill Patrick.

I didn't find any notable difference in the response of the unit when I did mine. I hadn't heard anyone else report a change of response either. I've always been a big time Bigsby user too...
...that's how it looks to me...The opinion expressed above is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of this station. Your mileage may vary...
