    Did a thread search on this one, couldn't find much: Anyone know where you can buy Lyre (or Deluxe Maestro, whichever you prefer) vibrolas, i.e. the ones found on Angus axes and the like?

    ..if you go for the Allparts unit, don't forget to order it thru the link to Allparts, on the EverythingSG Home Page.:wink:

    Whoa - that eBay auction is way above my price range. Nice original stuff, but the newer gear will do.

    Anybody know where I can get the authentic Gibson vibrola? Allparts has a great piece, but its a "Gibson style" part, not the real deal.

    Will do. I'm getting as many pics of vibrola-equipped SGs as I can before any drilling goes on! Also, I have a couple of mother of pearl discs from a Les Paul that I put a Bigsby on, so I think I'll just reuse those for this job.

    If you want I could give you some measurements from mine, a stock '70 Standard with ABR-1.From what I understand, the AllParts TP is exact except for engraving.You might be able to get a cover from Gibson if you're nice but they'll want a serial #.

    BTW-I just finished a Blueprint in 1/1 scale for setting up the lyre measuring off of the ABR-1 bridge's posts and centered on the strap button. If you have access to a fax machine you can send me a private message with a fax # and I'll send you a copy-and of course that goes for any members!
