    Are there Bigsby's made for bass?
     
  2. I have seen pictures of Bigsby equipped basses, but I'd bet the farm that they're altered guitar units rather than purpose built for the bass.
     
  3. I don't see any on the site...

    same here...

    The warehouse guy at work wants to put a Hurst shift knob on a Bigsby... He's got the shift knob so far. I'm helping him either look or get one to modify.

    I remember an ad that used to run in Vintage Guitar for a guitar parts company named wings or eagles or something. They carried a ton of Gretsch and Bigsby equipment and they listed a Bigsby unit for 4 string bass.
