Vibramate Spoiler

About This Item

The easy way to restring your Bigsby! The Spoiler™ is brilliant: this simple bracket makes string changes a no-brainer.

Just slip it in place—no tools, no modifications—and install your strings in the Spoiler's notches in seconds. It's held solidly by string tension under pitch. No more wrapping the strings around the roller bar; no kinking the ends to fit over those little pins. A tremendous time-saver. Paul Bigsby would have loved this!

The Spoiler is designed to maintain the smoothness and feel of the Bigsby's vibrato action, and has a tasteful "factory installed" look. It's made of polished high grade stainless steel for durability and tone, and fits any Bigsby.

Made in USA by the makers of Vibramate™ no-drill adapters for Bigsby vibratos.

Bought two vibramate spoilers a gold one for my friend and a silver for myself. We are completely satisfied with this product . Makes stringing a bigsby so easy and they look real good on the guitars.

Makes restringing a Bigsby-equipped guitar a breeze. The item is a little bit pricey for a small bit of stamped steel, but the convenience factor is considerable.

Love it. It probably added days of productivity to my life span. One thing, i think it works way better when the bigsby has the roller to keep the break angle over the bridge correct.....

Good but...

The Spoiler is smaller than the pin spacing on the guitar i have fitted it to, so two outer pins are outside the Spoiler. It is far easier to string than the 'old Bigsby way', but with string tension on only 4-pins, only time will tell whether the Bigsby is adversely affected by using the Spoiler. Be aware of this before you buy and make an informed decision on whether to fit.

I put one of these on a B5 about a year ago. All I can say is wow, what a difference! Changing strings is so easy I no longer dread the chore- I always avoided Bigsbys in new guitars because of the PITA string changes. If you have the "meat locker hardware" this is a must have.
No apparent change in tone.
