During my daily online guitar hunting I noticed a Millennium 158. Can anyone tell me how this is different from the H155?

Thanks

I had a H-158 for a while. Really nice guitar. It's a Millie without the bling. I now have a Millennium SAE. It's essentially the same guitar with a piezo pickup added on the SAE.

The Arched laminated back is one of the big things that separates the H-158 from the rest of the Millennium series. I really need to dig mine out and start playing it again. I'm probably going to have to get the nut replaced and possibly replace the licensed bigsby with a USA one. It just does not come back to tune nearly as well as it needs to for it to be usable.

Try a Stetsbar. I have 2 of them on 2 of my H-150s, and, IMO, they are a great tremolo bridge. No routing in the body, either. Just a suggestion.

I've been considering one for my 140. 

Any issues with mounting (spacing) or intonation and will the case lid close?

Thanks, D.

Les Trem II is much easier to install and way cheaper...

Well, it already has the "licensed" bigsby on it, and I think the holes for the real one are mostly the same.  If I really used the tremolo, I'd think about it, but also the spacing around the bridge wouldn't be ideal for the stets bar.

It is such a great guitar. Awesome raunchy rock sound, and no excessive "bling". Thank you again for selling it to me. It's being well taken care of.

I wasn't aware this product existed until I read your post; I just ordered one for my inbound 535.  Thanks.

I've used them in the past and still considering one for my 535. 

I noticed Josh Scott from JHS uses one on his Collins Semi-Hollow.
