    Up to this point the Tele with B5 was one guitar that Biggsfix wouldn't work on. The geometry resulted in not nearly enough break angle to keep the strings in place..... gotta have at least some tension on the dang tension roller. Still, lots of Tele owners tell me that there is just too much tension at the roller.

    I recently developed a Biggsfix with less relief for B7's mounted on Vibramate adapter plates (mianly for Les Pauls). The problem initially was that the plate raised the Bigsby enough (but not enough to relieve the tension issue) that when the Biggsfix was added...... too much relief..... again, you gotta have SOME tension.

    Anyway, I just had an inquiry from a Tele owner with a B5. We decided to try out one of the BTS5712VM's for grins. The results are in....... and they are good.
