Product Description

For owners of thin hollow and semi-hollow guitars including ‘335’ style guitars, the Bigsby B3 Vibrato Tailpiece for Semi-Hollow Guitars is for you! This classic whammy system is sand-cast construction in Kalamazoo, MI for that authentic feel and look. The Bigsby B3 vibrato is easy to install and is a great way to make your favorite axe even more fun to play!

The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. The arm of the Bigsby is spring loaded and attached to a pivoting metal bar, around which the strings of the guitar are installed. In the neutral or unused position, the pressure of the spring counterbalances the pull of the strings, resulting in constant pitch.

When the arm of the Bigsby B3 is pushed down towards the top of the guitar, the bridge rocks forward causing the strings to loosen, lowering their pitch. When the arm is released, the strings return to normal pitch. The arm may also be lifted slightly to raise the pitch of the strings. The Bigsby is highly controllable within its range of motion and requires little force to operate.
