Hi all,

I have really enjoyed the Show Me Your Bisgby Teles! thread and thought it would be neat to have a thread showing off your tele with an other than Bigsby vibrato.

I'll start. I am using a Super-Vee Maverick on my DC. Show me yours.

This is my Dean - Nash Vegas Tele with a Floyd. Honestly wish it didnt have it tho as it limits me to one tuning and I really love playing it and would use it a lot more in multiple bands. Have considered blocking it off.

This thread never really took off, eh?
Well, I only have one electric guitar without a Bigsby and it’s my Supro Coronado II. It has a whatever the heck Supro uses for vibratos these days.
With a couple adjustments, it works real well.

Not to derail too much but-I recognize this guitar & the one in your avatar - Saw your band play @ sun tiki a few months ago- with Goiter and Tysk tysk task I think? Great set & very nice guitar playing

Probably not a great example, as it is (IMO) an “evolved” Bigsby.
It behaves like a Bigsby wishes it could.
All the charm, none of the issues.
It operates smoothly, and quietly, and is a snap to restring.
I have two other Bigsby equipped guitars.
Both work well, but the Duesenberg is several evolutionary steps ahead, IMO.

My next guitar is going to be outfitted with a Duesenberg short vibrato. Thinking SG with one attached using their plate that mounts to the stop tailpiece holes. Leaps and bounds beyond any vibrato I've previously tried.

I remember that show well! It was in June.
Glad you enjoyed it.
We’re playing at The Apohadion on Hanover street tomorrow night (Friday 10/14). If you’re there, say hello!
