Anyone ever made a 3/4 string bigsby style tailpiece and vibrato? I couldn't find anything through google but thought I'd ask the gang here. Doesn't have to look pretty just needs to get the classic fast vibrato. I'm looking to put one on a mini telecaster build.

Thanks,
Trapper

thats what i thought..

that is easier enough to make.

well it would be to me seeing that I'm fairly good at metal work.

this is my rat trap whammy, c2011 or so, just a rat trap, couple forks, and a couple U bolts..  Works pretty good, does a nice subtle surf guitar warble...

And this is a chassis I made a couple months ago for a PA Bigsby inspired 3 string whammy.  Its a bit of angle steel drilled, a notch cut out, then bent over on itself with a bit of 8mm rod plug welded in for the retainer bar (the one the strings go under)  Im looking for the right torsion spring to complete it, hopefully it'll turn up soon..

very cool
