The B6 is designed for large archtops and jazz boxes so this would probably be better than the B7.

Standard Bigsby Vibratos are made in the USA. Some licensed models may be manufactured internationally.

This would be a good choice for a full sized archtop although you may need to drill a few holes at the lower bout for the hinge. There is always risk involved when doing a modification to a guitar. With that in mind, these vibrato's are made of lightweight aluminum (0.84 lbs) and should not put too much strain on a guitar top.

The link for the vibramate adapter for an epiphone archtop is as follows: https://www.tubesandmore.com/products/adaptor-kit-vibramate-v7-335-e-epiphone-arch-top Keep in mind this is for the B7 bigsby, not this B7 unit. Here is the link for the proper unit: https://www.tubesandmore.com/products/vibrato-bigsby-b7-guitar-arch-top-electrics

Yes, the holes in the plate by the bottom strap button are the only required drilling for this particular unit.
