The bridge locks to the mounting studs for rock-solid stability, and the strings move with the grooved roller saddles for improved vibrato smoothness and accuracy.

Stays in tune very well

(Customer's Reviews)

These look good on my '69 Guild Starfire V ! Smooth Trem!



(Customer's Reviews)

The Bigsby looks great on my ES-335.


Great Combo

(Customer's Reviews)

I just installed the locking roller bridge and B70 on my Echotone and it sounds, looks, and plays better than ever! The bridge has been on my upgrade list for quite a while (slowly upgrading this guitar over the years) and have wanted a Bigsby for a very long time. After getting over putting a drill to my guitar, it was an easy install and it was totally worth it! I still need to tweak intonation and bridge height, but it is very playable and sounds great directly after install. I'm very surprised and happy!


Great Value, gorgeous parts.

(Customer's Reviews)

This tremolo is the economic version (there is another model, slightly different, but also intended for LP). It is well built, firm, and has a good polish, it goes well with chrome and nickel parts.

The bridge is very good looking, it has nice rollers and comes pre-adjusted with the top 3 saddles opposed to the bottom 3. This set looks amazing with some TV Jones pickups.


Right on.

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a great value. Went on easy, works great, looks great.
