    Popular vibrola players, well known for vibrola use

    Does anyone here know of a list of players that are well known for their vibrola use? I know of many players that have a vibrola but rarely, if ever, touch it. I'm sure there are several that I'm drawing a blank on.

    Vector logo vibrola cover plate

    Hi! I'm restoring my SG and I would like to install a long vibrola tailpiece that I found at a good price, but which doesn't have the engraved logo on the cover plate. Can anyone provide me a vector file with the artwork of the lyre and Gibson's logo to engrave the cover plate? Thanks

    61' reissue with Maestro Vibrola (2019) quallity?

    I was gonna buy this one in a local shop. I found out it had a dying tone on 14th fret, D string and the Vibrola was fixed about 2-3 mm out of the center, so the strings would be in a funny angle. The price tag of about 2000 USD was a bit to high to come with glitches like that, and so i...

    Am I the only one with tuning stability on my Maestro?

    Hey there fellows, first time posting. I’ve been noticing everybody complains about maestro tremolo tuning stability and talking about roller bridges and all those mods. Well, I’ve been recording an album and I got the guitar because I really felt it would give that shine I wanted (and it...

    Maestro Vibrola springs and things ...

    Hello, a new member here and would like to ask and share some opinions on the vibrola. I recently bought a 2001 '61 reissue that had a really awful vibrola on it. It would not play at all due to the spring sitting horizontal to the guitar so the arm was virtually resting on the body and...

    Covering stud holes after installing Maestro Vibrola

    I have a 2017 Gibson SG Standard. I just bought a maestro vibrola from crazyparts, but as I began to install it, I realized that there will be holes where the stud bolts were. One hole is covered enough to where it doesn't bother me, but the other is a bit of an eyesore. see pics of the hole and...

    Picked Up A Roxy SG But Something Doesn't Seem Right ?

    Hey guys I was able to pick up a Roxy SG and I've been dumbfounded as to how to set this thing up. I adjusted the truss rod so I can have as much of a straight neck as I possibly can. There is probably a 1/64th of a gap at the 12 fret. That's as much as the nut will go before failure I feel and...
