Los Angeles. Late 1940s. A love of motorcycles brings together genius engineer Paul Bigsby and music legend Merle Travis. Their friendship inspired Paul to create the first Bigsby True Vibrato Tailpiece. He went on to design a series of Vibratos that rocked the music world. Still the original. Hand Crafted. Sand Cast. Hand Polished. The same way Paul did.
Telecaster is a trademark of FMIC.

Comments about Bigsby B5 Telecaster Vibrato Kit - Telecaster and Similar Flat Top Solid Body Guitars:
I installed this trem/bridge on a late model standard. I was a little worried that it would effect the tone, but it still sounds like a TELE, and I really like having the trem available. Installation is a little intimidating, but can be done at home if you are careful and heed the directions provided. I did change out the nut at the same time to tusq (graphite would also work) to allow the strings to slide a bit, and would definately recommend doing so with this bridge as it really helps hold a tuning when using the trem. Exellent!
