BIGSBY® B6 Kit with TOWNER System

• The TOWNER Down Tension Bar manages your sustain controlling your break angle.
• The TOWNER Down Tension Bar allows you to control how much string tension you want.
          – Recommended to set the Down Tension Bar just below the saddles of the bridge. 
The TOWNER Hinge Plate Adaptor is designed to provide a flat surface for your strap lock or strap button on the BIGSBY® EX-SHORT hinge plate.
The TOWNER Hinge Plate Adaptor slot provides room for exact placement of the BIGSBY®.
The TOWNER Hinge Plate Adaptor and 2″ strap button screw acts as a retainer holding the BIGSBY® to the guitar body, relieving you from having to drill four extra screws into your guitar.

• Measure the neck width of your studs, they should be NO wider than 0.265 inches, if they are wider than 0.265 inches you will need to purchase different tailpiece mounting studs, likely METRIC studs. Gibson Memphis reissues and Gibson reissues sometimes have wider neck posts, measure to be sure. (*The TOWNER Down Tension Bar is designed to fit the neck width of stock GIBSON Guitar stud posts.)

• I recommend the 1″ Spring for B6’s, provides a comfortable distance between the guitar and the Bigsby arm.

• ‘Some’ ES-347’s have the studs set lower on the guitar body. If so, use the TOWNER B3 Kit because the studs are set further back on the guitar.
