BIGSBY VIBRATO
The Bigsby vibrato tailpiece is a type of vibrato device for electric guitars.
The top mount allows musicians to bend the pitch of notes or entire chords with their pick hand for various effects. The Bigsby Vibrato was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is technically correct term for the musical effect it produces.
