If you can handle brutal torture in German. I guess it needs no subtitles:
He did compare them to motorcycles.
The most important difference, the Bigsby looks like it fell off a 50s Cadillac and the Stetsbar fell off a Triumph motorcycle.
That's what I got from it anyway
Nur Spaß, das Video ist echt Klasse ich habe vieles gelernt, danke!
Most amazing: that Stetsbar stays in tune doing divebombs with 09/42 strings.
That Bigsby guitar's tone crushes der Stetsbar.
Come on now. If you're going to compare to motorcycles, compare the Bigsby to the motorcycle Paul Bigsby actually worked on.
Crocker motorcycles were pushed out of business by Harley, because their product was so much better even though they were a very small company.
I would compare the Stetsbar to this goofy retro bike:
I fitted a Stetsbar and three Bigsbys: a B16 and two B5s.
I no longer have a Stetsbar but my B16 Esquire is my favourite guitar and the two B5s are keepers.
I wonder if the designer of the Janus was called Hugh?
Totally different pickups my friend.
Cool. I think the stetsbar looks more right on a Telecaster.
This confirmed one thing I've always thought, a Bigsby definitely belongs on a black guitar, make/model unimportant.
I worked for a time with an engineer called John Janus. Of course his nickname was Hugh.
What are the pups in the black one?
Fidelitron and tadaaaaah!
I have a Stetsbar on my RSTT. It's huge and it's heavy but it STAYS in tune no matter what. Eric Stets is a pipe fitter (iirc) who designed these and he's a great guy in my one experience of dealing with him.
(Sorry for posting this picture a thousand times)
Stetsbar is absolutely my trem of choice!
Actually I thought so too.
I guess it could be the pickup or the whammy bar techniques. I have no idea, but it sounded completely different.
The Stetsbar did seem to stay better in tune. I don't remember any commentary on the Bigsby being less stable, but there was something about the Stetsbar being stable.
