“BIGSBY® B6 with Hinge Plate Adaptor and Ex-Short Hinge Plate”

The BIGSBY® B6 is preferred for ES-330 and 335 style guitar models because the B6 is longer and suits the longer ES style guitar bodies. The BIGSBY® B6 will come to you already modified for your convenience. The TOWNER System provides a screw-less system and innovation of string control with the down tension bar and the hinge plate adaptor provides a flat surface for all strap button and strap lock buttons. The BIGSBY® “EX-SHORT” Hinge Plate and Hinge Pin replace the B6 Hinge Plate.


• 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. 

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. Gibson Memphis reissues and Gibson reissues sometimes have wider neck posts, measure to be sure. 
See TOWNER store here on reverb.com for replacements with proper neck post width.
(*The TOWNER Down Tension Bar is designed to fit the neck width of stock GIBSON Guitar stud posts.)

Buy the TB6 here, the rivets are installed in the hinge plate for you.
