If the Bigsby on your guitar is from the Original Kalamazoo Line (USA) then this should work.

If I'm correct the B60 is from the licensed line. All Bigsby parts are designed to work with the U.S.A. Kalamazoo line. Using this arm with the licensed model may require modification.

These will work on Bigsby's that are from their Original Kalamazoo Line. Also, you will need to purchase the Chet Atkins style handle if you do not already have one.

With a B7 this should be a an easy swap. This handle is held on by a set screw and your stock handle should be similar. If you can confidently remove the stock handle then you should not have a problem replacing it with this handle.
