Vibramate – V5-ST Short Tail, For Bigsby B5
Vibramate Short Tail V5 Adapter Mounting Kit, For Bigsby B5
The Vibramate V5 Short Tail Mounting Kit is the same as the Original V5 kit but designed for tighter locations such as the SG Classic style guitars that feature a larger pickguard.
The Vibramate V5 is for mounting a Bigsby B5 Original Vibrato and will fit most traditional style guitars that have a tune-a-Matic style bridge and a stop tailpiece. The kit installs in minutes with the included hardware and eliminates the need for drilling permanent holes in your instrument. Vibramate comes with 3 felt-pads secured to the bottom of the mounting plate for a soft touch to the top of your guitar. The unit automatically positions the Bigsby Vibrato in the proper orientation and makes a very clean finished appearance with great performance.
The Vibramate Quick Mount Kit includes both English and Metric threaded mounting hardware for either US or Import model guitars.
Be sure to follow the mounting instructions to prevent damage to your instrument.
Note: Vibramate V5 is designed for the Bigsby “Original” B5 Vibrato ONLY and will not work with other variations such as the “Licensed” B50 Model or the Import B500 Model. Make sure you have the correct Bigsby Vibrato for the proper installation of the Vibramate Kit!
