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.

Great for stringing a guitar

Great for stringing a guitar. The vibramate was a genius idea. Fits the Bigsby on my ‘78 Gibson. Makes restringing so much easier. It’s a great addition to your guitar.

this is a welcomed addition to my guitar. The strings previously had to be bent at the ball ends to connect to the bigsbsy and with this device it is so much more convenient to use when you change strings Thanks.

Vibramate Spoiler and other Vibramate and Bigsby products from StewMac

By

Verified Buyer


Despite the business and logistical issues created by the COVID crisis, StewMac has functioned effectively in processing and shipping several orders I placed, of which Vibramate and Bigsby products were included. High marks on handling and shipping the orders in a timely manner -- which were pretty consistent with StewMac's pre-COVID regimen.

Great work from a solidly-run company. Thanks so very much!

A must

By

Verified Buyer


I discovered this totally accidentally, in the net. I have 7 guitars with Bigsby, but didn't heard about this, although I've knew about the vibramate adapter. So my ignorance about the string spoiler was beaten when I saw this. And, if after that I didn't missed an improvement like this just because you accepted that there is nothing more to do with a Bigsby than do it "old style", I can tell you that was something that upsets me. So, the choice was clear: ove had to buy one. And yes, it's a clever, simple and effective design that I would recommend, even if you are satisfied with stringing of you Bigsby...

Simple addition.

Excellent tool to make Bigsby restringing easier with no noticeable change in tone, sustain, or tuning stability. Simple to install and remove. I don’t understand why the gold was more expensive than stainless (I have both), but the color matches my gold Bigsby perfectly.

One of the best Bigsby mods you can make!

By


I've been a fan of Vibramate's stuff for years, and I got the guys in the shop turned on to these spoilers.

This doo-dad makes Bigsby restrings super easy and fast, even if you consider yourself all-thumbs at those sorts of things. Personally, I've never had much trouble restringing Bigsby guitars, but I still appreciate how convenient this makes the process. Another thing I like about it is that with that "wrap-over wind" eliminated, the guitar strings will always settle in a straight path and can't really deviate laterally as they wind over the bar, which seems to make the Bigsby a bit more stable.

If one of your favorite axes sports a Bigsby, this is definitely a worthwhile upgrade.

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!
