      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.

      Telecaster® is a trademark of FMIC.

      From Rock Guitar to Rock Solid Guitar

      Comments about Bigsby B5 Telecaster Vibrato Kit - Telecaster and Similar Flat Top Solid Body Guitars:

      The Bigsby is one of the finest add-ons I have on my instrument. Not only does it provide the tremolo a Telecaster so badly needs, but it broadens, lengthens, and smooths the tone. Tired of extreme twang? Add a Bigsby. You'll still have the signature Telecaster twang, but instead of a piercing stab, it's a glorious chime. Beyond that, this thing just looks flippin' rad. If you wanna impress the babes, I can't think of a better way than a hunkin' piece of chrome metal. If you don't know anything about drilling, hire a pro. If you do, go for it. Just be patient and precise. This upgrade is well worth the money and well worth the time. Also, I would recommend buying a set of locking tuners to help keep the guitar in crystal clear tune - the Bigsby can make tuning more difficult with regular tuners. I use Sperzels, and I've never looked back. Happy strumming!

      Great Add-on

      Comments about Bigsby B5 Telecaster Vibrato Kit - Telecaster and Similar Flat Top Solid Body Guitars:

      Really adds a new range of sounds to your Telecaster. Great for anyone who enjoys rockabilly and surf style effects. The only downside is that it does take a major modification to your guitar.

      Awesome upgrade but with a hassle

      Comments about Bigsby B5 Telecaster Vibrato Kit - Telecaster and Similar Flat Top Solid Body Guitars:

      I would highly recommend if you by this product to have it installed by a local shop or go out and buy the recommended drill bits and use a drill press to be precise. Gives it that awesome twang I was looking for without having to buy a Strat. Ah yes and if you don't have the patience, get it strung up when you have it installed by the pros.
