Take a rare trip through the Bigsby Vibrato manufacturing process. See how Bigsby Vibratos are handmade using the same sand-cast molds as originally designed by Paul Bigsby in the 1950′s. Aluminum ingots are melted and poured into the preformed sand molds to shape the Bigsby castings. Then they are trimmed, polished and assembled into finished products for your guitar. Enjoy!
