Vibramate?

Post by xbarnesx on Mon Oct 26, 2015 7:45 am

anyone ever used any Vibramate products?
http://www.vibramate.com/index.php
my dad was considering a Bigsby for his Gibson ES335 dot but was put off by having to drill it, I was looking generally at B7 prices for him and saw this http://www.vibramate.com/vibramate-v7-335-install.php which looks like it would give him the best of both worlds

would appreciate any feedback from you guys

I think you're right a B6 would probably look better
do you know how they measure up?

Alternatively use one of these at a  fraction of the price.
I have cut the bits off these to resemble a B6.(front bar)
If your handy with a file/polisher.
Just fix some felt on the bottom.

at that price I'm probably going to order one for my Korean 335 knock off
no dimensions on their, I presume extremely similar to the Bigsby

thanks for your help Damian

That was my first thought too, if you prefer the "real" deal.

I think that's what he'll end up going for if he ever actually makes his mind up
