You'll have to do some work if you do. You will have to fill in the holes where the studs were for the stop tailpiece. Then sand over it and somehow try to make the finish look decent after you do all of this. I wouldn't bother. If it were a Les Paul, I would say yes, because you wouldn't be able to see where the stop tailpiece used to be because the area between the bridge and the end of the guitar is much smaller on a Les Paul than on a Semi-hollow body. If you could somehow get it put on to where you couldn't see where the studs used to be (which I doubt you can), You would probably end up spending as much money on parts and labor as you did on the guitar.

Indeed , you will also need a new bridge otherwise this guitar model who keep going out of tune as soon you hit the bigsby. Thats why i dont have a bigsby on my sheraton yet , mainly because of the stoptail piece.

Bigsby on a Les Paul looks horrible though ;)
