It should work and will be a permanent modification. You will also have to cover up the holes for the stop tailpiece. The B7 is a popular choice and we have the Vibramate adapter kit that will allow you to mount a B7 with no permanent modifications to your guitar!

We carry a left handed version of the B5 and B7 but not the B3.

The Aluminum version of the B3 is very close in color to nickel hardware, but not an exact match. Doing a google image search for "Les Paul Bigsby" should pull up some images to give you a good idea of the color contrast between the two.

From the limited info we could find, it appears that this B3 unit or the B6 unit will work for the guitar in question. The B6 unit would be more likely to fit properly.

We do not have sufficient cross reference materials to verify if this will fit your guitar. You will want to compare the drawing above with sizing information with the dimensions of your guitar.

This unit may work, but more likely, the B6 will be a better choice for a deeper bodied guitar. https://www.amplifiedparts.com/products/vibrato-bigsby-b6-large-hollow-body-guitars

The bigsby B5 would be the most suitable option for that model of guitar, but heavy modifications would need to be made, including installing a new bridge. Here are the link for the B5 unit and a suitable bridge. https://www.amplifiedparts.com/products/vibrato-bigsby-b5-flat-top-electric-guitars https://www.amplifiedparts.com/products/bridge-bigsby-tele-adjustable-2-bushings
