The B6 is designed more for large archtops and jazz boxes so this would probably be better than the B7.

Thanks very much for the quick answer to my question. After studying both the B6 and the B7, I feel you are 100% correct. Plus no holes have to be drilled in the top with the B6.

The replacement spring would be 7/8" and our part number for the replacement is P-GB-SPRING-2S

Standard Bigsby Vibratos are made in the USA. Some licensed models may be manufactured internationally.

This would be a good choice for a full sized archtop although you may need to drill a few holes at the lower bout for the hinge. There is always risk involved when doing a modification to a guitar. With that in mind, these vibrato's are made of lightweight aluminum (0.84 lbs) and should not put too much strain on a guitar top.

This appears to be the correct unit for a Gretsch White Falcon, but if you have any concerns, please compare the measurements in the drawing above with your guitar or contact Gretsch/Bigsby direct.

The link for the vibramate adapter for an epiphone archtop is as follows: https://www.amplifiedparts.com/products/adaptor-kit-vibramate-v7-335-e-epiphone-arch-top Keep in mind this is for the B7 bigsby, not this B7 unit. Here is the link for the proper unit: https://www.amplifiedparts.com/products/vibrato-bigsby-b7-guitar-arch-top-electrics

Yes, the holes in the plate by the bottom strap button are the only required drilling for this particular unit.

It actually has a 7/8" spring. It does have instructions and the plastic washer.
