Vibrola estimate?

Does anyone know how much it would cost to put a vibrola tailpiece on my SG to go from this(except for the paint job):

$150.00 plus shipping from All Parts .

 

The All Parts version doesn't have the fancy engraving found on the Angus Young model.

 

All Parts also has the Les Trem which sell for $135. This is more like a Bigsby. I actually think the "bent metal" vibrato probably stays in tune a bit better (and I'm a Bigsby user!).

 

These things are great for subtle vibrato. You can't dive-bomb with them.

That's what my Strat is for :)

 

And i would use it for (de)tuning purposes and slight dives and returns.

I'm glad I didn't mention the Stetsbar then. It sells for around $300! :freak:

 

I gave you the wrong price on the Les Trem at All Parts. They sell it for $200. I saw it somewhere else (Stew-Mac maybe?) for $135.

 

Check E-bay. You might something on there for cheap.
