Locking Roller Bridge with Bigsby B50 Vibrato

The vibrato is a time-tested Bigsby licensed design for thin archtop guitars or Les Paul® solidbodies. The string tension bar has nylon washers for smooth operation.

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.

The Bigsby vibrato and roller bridge are also sold separately.

Great Combo

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.

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.

It's Easier than That!

I have installed the Bigsby RB70 and roller bridge on my Epi Les Paul Custom. It has had the pickups potted, all wiring shielded, some minor improvements in the electronics and the frets leveled and polished. Now, the Bigsby has turned the Epi into a monster. In reference to Mario’s comments, there is an easy way of pulling those stud flanges. Get the right metric bolt (the same size as the studs) with threads about two inches long. Screw it into the socket and it will lift the bushing out easily and with no damage. I filled the holes with wood putty and topped them with a thin round felt pad cut exactly to size. It looks like the guitar was made that way, and the wood fill could be easily drilled out and the old bushings put back in if I decided to. I did find that the mounting screw hole on the whammy bar side is really close to the roller bridge. I used a stack of three thin fiber spacers (one each red, white and black) as a shim under the end-pin hinge, and they pulled it back perfectly. My Epiphone is as good, and even better, than all of the new Gibson LP’s that I have recently played, and at one-third of the total outlay.

Bigsby rocks...

I just put the b70 and rolling bridge on my epiphone gold top and I gotta tell you it kicks A$$! Thats right i said epiphone. It took a little work because I had to grind down the rim of the bridge cups so the bigsby would lay flush against the body, but it worked out great. (If anyone try's to install the b70 on an epiphone Les Paul you'll see what I mean.) Its not so bad. So now if I ever wanna get rid of the gold top, I can still put the old bridge and saddle back on it. One of the only bad things I can say is about the weight. It did increase the weight quite a bit.
