Somehow, the B5 Bigsby looks perfectly "at home" on a Rickenbacker 325:
Yep, the B5 is gooood
I got a lot of problems, but a B5 ain’t one of them!
i LOVE a b5 on a tele.
this was my old telecaster:
I'd like to do that to my new Tele with the Vibramate system , but I'm just going to hold off for a while . Just want to enjoy the natural beauty of it right now
I like her stock. It's a beautiful guitar you got.
Thanks Charlie ... yea , sometimes I find myself just staring at it ... lol
Yeah. It's really nice. I would imagine it sounds amazing.
I'll have to make it back East some day.
I didn't like the one i had on my 325,if i'd kept that guitar it was coming off to be replaced with a trapeze!
I prefer the B3 B4 the B5.
Tension bar Bigsbys are less preferable to me than the B6, B3, etc. They don't have that natural flow.
For a Rickenbacker with the ramp from the butt of the guitar to me the best Bigsby is the B16, although it takes work to mount--cutting and welding to get the hinge to match the existing hole(s) on the guitar. But I've done it and I know I am the first and only one to have done so.
I had a Fender B5 on my old Telecaster via Vibramute. The system works but it adds noticable weight.
Never been a fan. I just don't like the look.
It's one of the reasons that keeps me away from buying a new Jet. They look great but I suspect it will be a mess to get rid of that B5.
