The Vibramate V5 Adapter uses your guitar's stop tailpiece bushings for easy and secure Bigsby B5 installation with just a screwdriver. No drilling!

The Vibramate V5 adapter kit has all the hardware you need for easy, secure installation with just a screwdriver.

SAVE when you order your Bigsby with a Vibramate!

  • For guitars with U.S. or metric stop tailpiece mounting bushings that have standard 3-1/4" (82.55mm) non-staggered spacing.
  • Fits most solidbody and thin archtop guitars with a Tune-o-matic style bridge.
  • Felt pads protect the guitar’s finish.
  • Made of high grade polished aluminum for stability and tone.
  • For USA Bigsbys only (will not fit the Bigsby B50 licensed imported vibrato).

Vibramate V5 fits flat-face solidbodies. This won't fit a classic large-pickguard SG, or a Flying V (order the Short Tail kit).

Vibramate V5-ST Short Tail has clearance for large pickguards on classic SG® solidbodies.

Although the Vibramate V5 adapter can be used to install a Bigsby B5 vibrato on a carved-top Les Paul or a thin-archtop ES-335 style guitar, the back of the unit may appear slightly raised. For a Les Paul, see the Bigsby B7 Vibrato with Vibramate V7-LP Adapter instead.

Vibramate adaptor

I think this an excellent device. While i have had great success with it on most guitars on my 60's melody maker SG conversion the extra height that the vibramate added changed the break over the bridge enough to make the low E not so happy.

must have

this is the greatest part for anyone with the b5 vibrato. i installed this on to my gibson sg standard vintage sunburst and it looks amazing. worth every penny.and if you do put this on to your guitar make sure you pick up the roller bridge.another must have.

Works great on Gibson Midtown Custom

Wanted to add a Bigsby but did not want to drill into my new guitar. This kit works great on my new Gibson Midtown Custom as it has a flat top.

The Vibramate and B5 installed within a few minutes with no issues at all. It is harder to string a Bigsby than it is to install this kit.

Highly recommended if you want to add a Bigsby to a flat top guitar (SG, Tele, LP Jr).

Great Product

The Vibramate was the only option for me to install a Bigsby on my Gibson SG Faded with my limited experience working on guitars.

This product made adding a Bigsby no harder than changing a set of strings. All the provided hardware was great and everything fit with the B5. It is truly as simple as six screws and you are ready to rock.

I would only recommend this product for flat top guitars like the SG or flat top Les Paul. I think you would be asking for trouble to try this with any carve top guitar.
