Wilkinson WVB Vibrato System
WILKINSON WVC TREMOLO SYSTEM
Since its introduction in 1954, this classic
design is the most copied guitar vibrato bridge
ever. The design is so simple and eminently usable
it is a challenge to improve on it, but improve
it we did!
Faithfully reproducing the size and weight of the original, this is a direct retro-fit for the "real thing" but with the added benefit of a push-in vibrato arm (rather than the troublesome original screw-in type).
We also staggered the string holes in the sustain block allowing the strings to follow the natural intonation line of the saddles, keeping the strings' "angle of attack" over the saddle's intonation point more consistent, eliminating annoying string "hang-up" giving unrivalled tuning stability.
Completing the assembly are the bent steel saddles built from the same gauge steel as the originals to retain the "vintage sparkle" that this bridge has become famous for.
All the features of the WVC with the added benefit of a
SOLID STEEL sustain block, a feature never before available in a vibrato bridge at this price point
