Bigsby has been one of the most recognized names in the guitar realm since 1946 when company founder, Paul Bigsby, decided to start making musical instruments instead of motorcycles. An immediate hit for its distinctive appearance and easy functionality, the Bigsby vibrato tailpiece has become as much of a musical icon as the Stratocaster or Les Paul in the 70 years since its introduction. For the total package of American ingenuity and classic looks, look to a Bigsby.
