Now you can install a traditional Bigsby vibrato using your guitar's stop tailpiece bushings—without drilling new holes in your instrument. The Vibramate V5 adapter kit has all the hardware you need for easy, secure installation with just a screwdriver.
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.
