can someone help me with a tremolo???



(this isnt my guitar but its an exact copy)

i got a "Montana" SG copy a while ago and i dont for the life of me know anything about the trem or the guitar itself.
does anyone know what kinda trem it is and if i can still get them? or could i just stick a strat trem in te hole?

and does anyone know anything about montana guitars? all i know about it is its from around about the 70's.

Bigsby tremolo is what goes in that baby. Don't know about the Montana but the Bigsby should fit if it's the same dimensions as the Gibson. No a strat trem wouldn't work.

Then again it may have it's own built in trem and you just need to stick a bar that fits into the hole

Do a Google search for "Bigsby B5"

or try ebay

make sure you find a merchant that will accept returns if it doesn't fit.

The cost over $100 and probably a bit more to install.

But it's a great tool for new sounds.
