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.

      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.

          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.

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

            This Tremolo, while Fender gets a 'A' for effort they get an 'F' for application. The tremolo is longer than the Bigsby B50 and mounts too close to the bridge creating very sharp string angles coming off the tremolo roller bar to the bridge saddles. The B50 is shorter and therefor mounts further away easing the string break and creating softer angles. Buy the kit with the Bigsby name on the tremolo, not the Fender.
            Also, many prefer to keep their original bridge plate and saddles instead of installing the Mustang bridge.
