    I know the flack I am about to take for this question. It is nothing but a pure look thing. I just love the look. Not 2k like but ....

    Does anyone make an aftermarket unit?

    The only aftermarket part for the Sideways Vibrola that I know of is the MojoAxe VibroStop, which essentially converts it to a stoptail. Sorry, @Dale . :(

    From a functional p.o.v. that might be a blessing. I like the look, but fear I'd have to geld it, like a Derek Trucks.

    I have a NOS 2019 '61 that has the sideways trem. It's not hard to remove the springs, which basically reverts it to a stop tailpiece. I did that, and I'm very happy with the results. It also moves the trem away from the jack, so its no longer in the way:
