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 ofVibramate™ no-drill adapters for Bigsby vibratos.

An Absolutely Great Device!

By

Verified Buyer


In 1967 I bought my first 6120 Gretsch and many other guitars with Bigsby's on them through out the years including a 1969 Tele with the original Fender/Bigsby on it and these are same two guitars I installed the 'VM' on. Oh man, it has always been an ordeal for 50 years to change strings but never more. These devices were a long time in coming and work absolutely great!!

Fantastic device! Love it, love it, love it!

Just bought a pair (Stainless and Gold) for my Gretschs. Fantastic device! Love it, love it, love it!

I know some folks complain about the price but you really do get what you pay for with the VibraMate. And if you own a guitar with a Bigsby system you'll be ecstatic about how easy string changes are.

Now that I own them, I'll never go back to the old way of restringing. Highly recommended.

Pricey but sweet!

For a gigging guitar player or a frequent string changer, this is a must have. Sure the price hurts, but the pay off is convenience and fast string changes. Don't listen to those nay sayers on the forums, this is an improvement not something that's going to cause hassles. Hate the price though!

Great solution to an annoying problem!

By

Verified Buyer


I was really disappointed with my Bigsby, as it was almost impossible to play in tune. As I used the Bigsby the strings would move around and not align with slots in my rolling bridge bridge. Not only that, it was really hard to re-string, and after the ease of string changes with my Jazzmaster, I figured I had to try something. The spoiler was easy to add and was the perfect solution, as the strings tend to stay in place better and it's a breeze to restring. I even think the resonance is improved.

This works great for relieving my anxiety and frustration of changing strings on a vintage instrument with a Bigsy.

Great Invention

Hated to change the strings on my Guild SF 3 and my Gretsch G-6119 TR but with this new attachment it's an ease. Putting the unit on was a little tricking but nothing terrible. It should have been around a long time ago. Well worth the investment for the time and aggravation saved although a bit pricing especially when you need more than one. All I can say further is that it works.

Great addition

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.
