My old guitar player pulled up too hard on his once and the spring shot out and hit the guitar tech. (who also pierced his lip with a drum stand and had a girl fall out of the balcony and on top of him at one of our shows.)

I'd say bigsbys are about on a par with the Jag trem. Never really had much experience with Mustang trems, to be quite honest. But yeah, bigsbys and other similar trems are for light wobbles. That's it. Don't go all Ritchie Blackmore on them or you're gonna have a bad time, k?

bigsbys are garbage compared to jag trems

Used both, can't see much difference in actual effect or operation. But I don't use them all that much, either. I kinda just like being able to when I want to, probably because I've almost always had trems on all guitars I've owned.

Tommy Iommi must be a huge pussy since he plays with 8's. No wonder his guitar tone is so weak.

He doesn't have any fingers. I think he has a valid medical reason for using 8s.

Yeah, I might be interested in going to see bands again if that sort of stuff happened.

And his tone is thin and weak.

Alas, this was probably over a period of a couple of years.
