Everything you need to fit a Bigsby® True Vibrato to your Fender® Telecaster®. Kit includes: Bigsby® Tailpiece, screws, tension spring, plastic washer, alignment string, bridge, bridge bushings, bridge plate, and installation Instructions.

Los Angeles. Late 1940s. A love of motorcycles brings together genius engineer Paul Bigsby and music legend Merle Travis. Their friendship inspired Paul to create the first Bigsby® True Vibrato Tailpiece. He went on to design a series of Vibratos that rocked the music world. Still the original. Hand Crafted. Sand Cast. Hand Polished. The same way Paul did.

Fender® and Telecaster® are Trademarks of FMIC.

      Comments about Bigsby B5 Fender Vibrato Kit - Original Fender Logo For Telecaster Guitars:

      Shim the neck! Especially if this is being installed on a Telecaster. You won't end up with the right action or intonation if it's not done. This was not stated on the directions. You might be able to put a pick in the neck pocket but to do it properly you need to construct a shim that fills the whole pocket with the right angle which may require more professional tools than what is indicated.

          Added to my 2006 Fender "Highway 1" model, along with a Mastery bridge and Vintage Vibe pickups, it sounds AMAZING! These are worth every penny. Built like a tank.

          Good Vibe

          Comments about Bigsby B5 Fender Vibrato Kit - Original Fender Logo For Telecaster Guitars:

          I put this unit on a Vintage Modified Squire. After upgrading the tuning machines to Grovers I have a truly Vintage Custom Tele. With the Fender Logo on the Bigsby you don't even notice the Squire Headstock. Actually this guitar has now become a '70's "Fender" New Yorker with the Humbucker in the bridge. Also the Bigsby helped give it an awesome tone.
