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.

SGand Les PaulJr are Trademarks of Gibson Guitar Corp., which is not associated with Bigsby.

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

    Mounted on a reissue of a 70's Gibson RD using a VibraMate. No holes were drilled and with a roller bridge and locking tuners the Bigsby B5 sounds and works great and could be returned to original with no indication it was ever modified. And in addition it looks amazing.

        I put this on my epi sg 400. Sustain for days. Looks incredible and easy to install. Quality is top notch. A little tricky to string at first but well worth it. Great product and very cool upgrade for your axe.

        I had one of these put on my Gibson SG special! I do not regret doing so. It gives the SG a Vintage vibe. I love it and my SG because of it!

        Bigsby B5

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

        The day I got my Bigsby B5 I installed it on my SG (Epiphone G400). It was very stressful because I had to drill into my investment, but other than that it was surprisingly easy, and worked out perfectly. Now that it's on, I'm really glad I bought and installed it. Not only is it a very usable and comfortable vibrato, but it looks extremely good. The range is a little narrower than, say, a Floyd Rose, but it is highly sensitive within that range. Besides, a Floyd Rose would look ugly and requires routing out a huge space in the guitar's body to install. This Bigsby even stays in tune longer than I expected. Not as long as a Floyd Rose, obviously, but better than my stock Fender Mustang's vibrato, which is less usable. Bigsby all the way.

        This is great, I put it on my Gibson SG. Pretty easy to install, just take your time so you do it right. And make sure your guitar is set up right or it won't stay in tune.
