VibramateVibramate manufactures products that allow you to install a vibrato on your guitar without drilling any holes.
Vibramate V5-TE Slotted Bridge Saddle Set for Telecaster Guitars are designed to work with the Vibramate V5-TE Series Mounting kits and Bigsby vibratos. Each set is custom-slotted utilizing the traditional 3-saddle "ash-tray" configuration and are designed to properly align the strings with the guitar neck of a Telecaster Guitar. The vintage style saddles are made in the USA and feature all Stainless Steel mounting screws and compression springs.
This is a complete set that includes an original Bigsby B5 and a matching Vibramate V5 for use with most traditional style guitars that have a tune-o-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.
The Vibramate V5 comes with 3 felt-pads secured to the bottom of the mounting plate for a soft touch to the top of your guitar. The V5 automatically positions the Bigsby B5 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.
The Vibramate V5 mounting plate was originally designed for flat-top guitars but may also work on a variety of carved and arch top models that have the same standard tune-o-matic style bridge and stop-tailpiece setup.
