Vibramate on 335 Custom

Recommended Posts

Hello.  I mounted with vibramate, a bigsby b7 but the measurements were not good.  I tried the other measure of the vibramate but the same was wrong.  do you see that the Custom has different sizes from tailpiece to body?

which vibramate kit did you buy?  the regular V7/B7 wont fit

Looks like what you'd need is the  v7-335  which has an extension arm to get it to fit for the 335 size 

So the combo seems to be the V7-335 & B7.. is that what you have?


here's the chart that says what kit is needed based on guitar you are installing on

 I had a similar problem with my ES-335 and my ES-345. The correct Vibramate was off about 3/16 of an inch. I didn't want to use an extra bottom plate so I marked, re-drilled and tapped the top mounting holes in the Vibramate. Now it fits perfect. The Vibramate also gave me a better break angle over the bridge and makes the roller bridge unnecessary. I hope this helps and thanks John
