Wow! Tough crowd here! ;)

I must agree...looks like a medieval torture device and somebody must have stayed up way late one night coming up with this design. In terms of fit, form and function, they really missed out on the form part.

I'll stick with the Biggsfix...

It's the kind of device that the late Jimmie Webster would have invented, for sure.

The presence of the Delrin sleeves pushing on the Bigsby main axle are already a total heresy : this will provide an unwanted and prejudiciable friction on the axle rotation that will irremediably result in an offset tuning each time you just touch the Bigsby handle !

Because remember that this axle is pivoting on a pair of must-be-clean-and-gently-lubed needle bearing to avoid even the slightest binding - and then you put that pair of Wilkinson Delrin sleeve " brakes " on the axle now ? 🤣🤣🤣

C'est n'importe quoi ! 🤪🤪🤪

Discard immediately this goofy device for the sake of your Bigsby tuning stability !

A+!
