B5 Vibrato Aluminium Tremolo Tailpiece
by Bigsby


Currently out of Stock



The Bigsby B5 is a vibrato tailpiece designed for flat top guitars like SGs, Les Paul Jrs, Telecasters etc. and allows you to produce smooth and subtle tremolo/vibrato effects (depressing the arm 1/2" will lower the tone around 1/2 a tone), the string mounting bar rotates on low friction bearings ensuring the guitar returns to pitch. The arm swivels on its mount and so can be moved out the way if needed, it is held under tension and so stays in place when moved. Bigsby vibratos were the first successful design of tremolo/vibrato units and they have been producing the iconic designs for over 50 years, the B5 is still sand cast in the USA from lightweight aluminium and the whole unit is only 287g (10.1 oz).

Bigsby vibratos can be fitted without modifying the guitar by using Vibramate parts which we sell separately.
