      Comments about WD Music B5 Bigsby Vibrato Tailpiece:

      This is the second one of these I've bought. I put one on my tele and now another for a homemade build. I also have 2 other bigsby guitars that have licensed bigsby logos. This one here on this page is the real original bigsby at a great price. It operates smooth and perfectly. Both guitars that have the licenced by bigsby that I have both have irritating problems that drive me nuts. Do yourself a favor and buy this REAL one.

          Comments about WD Music B5 Bigsby Vibrato Tailpiece:

          If your looking for a Bigsby to fit onto a Rick 300 series, the B5 is it. It fits straight on. If you want an absolute perfect fit, do what I did. Remove (filed away) the 4th screw hole, "the ear", and fit the 4th screw under the spring. This way it fits perfectly into the recessed section where the "R" tail piece sits. Looks and sounds great.

          Comments about WD Music B5 Bigsby Vibrato Tailpiece:

          This is the same B5 that sells for twice the price elsewhere. The only difference is that it doesn't include the piece of red string to help line it up before screwing it down. Also no fancy packaging. I don't find these any more effective than the Chinese knockoffs but for the relatively small price difference it makes sense to use the real thing. Even the Korean Bigsbys (B50/500) don't make sense when you are only saving a tiny bit.

                              I ordered this and installed it on my Gibson SG Special Faded along with a Vibramate adaptor. I couldn't be happier. The install was simple. Restringing was tricky until I figured I needed another set of hands and used my capo to lock each string down to the fretboard while tuning. This unit is exactly what I was looking for in a vibrato.

                                  True to other reviews of this product...it is the real McCoy. I suspect the lower price is due to no bridge plate but I didn't need one because the Tele already has one. When mounted on a Tele, there is very little distance between the back of the bridge plate and the front roller of the Bigsby. This makes stringing the guitar a challenge but thankfully it doesn't have to be done every day. Works as it was meant to.
