This complete kit features an authentic Bigsby B5 and a corresponding Vibramate V5, suitable for most traditional guitars equipped with a tune-o-matic style bridge and a stop-tailpiece. It can be installed quickly using the included hardware, avoiding the need to drill permanent holes in your guitar.

The Vibramate V5 includes three felt pads on the underside of the mounting plate to gently contact your guitar's top. It precisely aligns the Bigsby B5 for optimal orientation, resulting in a sleek, professional look and excellent functionality. The kit offers both English and Metric threaded mounting hardware to fit either US or international model guitars.

Designed initially for flat-top guitars, the Vibramate V5 mounting plate may also be compatible with various carved and arch top models that share the standard tune-o-matic style bridge and stop-tailpiece configuration.
