Thread: Stetsbar and after-market tremolos?

  1. #11
    Hi Dedman,
    How did that affect the string height? I feel strange putting a huge shim in the neck, could an angled headstock be a solution?

    How did that affect bridge height?

    I used a Vibramate bridge so it was standard height and has the cut outs at the back for the strings to pass throughClick image for larger version.

    Thanks,
    This has really opened a world of possibilities for me! Iím thinking Bigsby B5 or mosrite.
    Thank you again.

    Cheers,

    the Duesenburg version is nicer than the Bigsby. I have chinese, licenced and real bigsbys and the Duesenburg has a nicer action than any of them. The spring has a lighter touch, the arm is way more adjustable and its much much easier to string. Cost about the same as a genuine Bigsby

    I've used the Stetsbar on a mates' guitar and I have to say I didn't like it. Possibly because I'm not a huge Bigsby style trem fan; I prefer locking bridges, and the price seemed a little out there for what you got, although it went on the guitar without any alteration or bother...
    ... and it's ugly!! :-)
