This upgrade eliminates the years of problems and frustration of a Bigsby Vibrato restringing. This is a polished stainless steel shaft that is counterbored for the string ball ends. Thread the string through the hole and up to the tuner. Works for all models and comes with retaining clip.

Not for licensed or import Bigsby-style vibratos.

Easy install and use for total peace of mind

I had been dreading the eventual day my strings would break while using my bigsby and this product provided me the peace of mind while enabling the proper function of the arm. Installation was quick and painless and I recommend it to anyone who doesn’t want to use a spoiler

A "MUST HAVE" for Bigsby !!!

This was the best $50 I ever spent on a piece of guitar gear. Now I don't hate changing the strings on my Gretsch. Highly recommend this upgrade !!!!!

Callaham Upgrade Kit, Bigsby String Shaft

I need to return the bigsby string shaft. the tolerances are out of specs for the bigsby i recently purchased.

Great Bigsby upgrade

Well made part. Installing strings is much simpler with this. Removing the old shaft is a bit tricky, but installing the new one is simple.

Why doesn't Bigsby use these as standard equipment?

If you've ever screamed while trying to get your string ball end to stay on those stupid little nibs while you tightened the string this is for you. First thing I do when I get a guitar with a Bigsby.
