Can I put a whammy bar/tremolo/whatever you want to call it in an Epiphone Les Paul Junior?

I have just ordered Rocksmith 2014 Edition from Amazon.co.uk which comes with an Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitar (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CMJ1O34/ref=... and I have a spare whammy lying around my house somewhere and I want to put it to use, so is this guitar compatible with a whammy bar?

Thanks for your help! :)

    It doesn't look like the Les Paul Jr 2014 has the tremolo bar system. The Les Paul has more of a rock/country sound to it, not really a metal guitar, which would be the type you would use the tremolo bar on. Beautiful guitar though man for sure.

    Not all the electric guitars have a tremolo bar system. It depends on specific model of the guitar.

    For example Les Paul, Fender Telecaster guitars usually do not have it:

    About the only Trem system I'd consider adding to a Jr. is a Bigsby. I guy on the My Les Paul forum has an Epi LP Jr with a Bigsby and it looks really cool.

      I have a buddy with a les paul style gretch that came with a bigsby, it looks sick on it, and I don't even really like trem systems..
