1 Junior Q Man (Ryan M) 1 week ago I’m finally getting around to putting a Bigsby on my ‘90s Peerless made Epiphone Sorrento. Never done it before but I am sufficiently mechanical that it doesn’t intimidate me. Read a bunch of forum posts and watched a bunch of how to vids and everyone emphasizes that getting it centered is key to good tuning stability. I have to use a B7, so I’m drilling the top sheet of the guitar and have no take backsies on this job. The Sorrento had a stock trapeze tailpiece, and at some point it got tricked out with a Frequensator, so it already has a bunch of extra holes drilled in the bottom. I was hoping that I could get away with re-using some of the existing holes, but by my reckoning, both sets of holes are off by nearly a quarter inch to the bass side!So my questions to those of you who have done a few of these — is it common for a tailpiece to be that far off from the factory? Does it just not matter as much for a trapeze style tailpiece? And since I gotta fill some of the old holes in order to properly drill new ones, is there a better trick than the old “toothpicks and wood glue” that you would use on a stripped out strap knob drilling?
