Product Description

The Stetsbar Stop Tail model is designed to fit guitars such as the Gibson Les Paul, SG, ES 335, Flying V and other guitars that share the common Gibson specification for stop tail positioning.

Stetsbar is the modern, professional, linear tremolo system that retro fits to stop tail, hard tail, Tele and Strat style guitars without any modification - no holes, no routing! Hi-tech micro roller bearings combine with a bridge that moves with the trem to give the Stetsbar unrivalled pitch range and stability for its class coupled with a extremely smooth up and down action.

Some non US made guitars require metric stop tail bolts but otherwise fit directly. We include both inch and metric spec bolts with our retail package. It is always wise to let us know what guitar you want to fit your Stetsbar to so that we can advise of any issues.

We have Stetsbars out there fitted to a large range of makes - see the gallery for an indication of just how wide that range is. Fitting a Stetsbar is very straight forward if you have experience of guitar maintenance. All the hardware to the rear of the bridge pickup is removed and the Stetsbar simply mounts directly to the existing stop tail bushes.

Re-string, intonate and play! And remember, the Stetsbar requires no additional routing or drilling - your guitar will restore to absolutely original condition if you want to move the Stetsbar to another instrument. How many other pro trems can say that?

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Stetsbar products.
- The bend range: up to one octave down and a third up
- Tuning and intonation stay correct - even after dive-bombing.
- Friction-free action gives you the sensitivity for delicate and accurate control of the trem's effects

Its smoothness comes from the trem and bridge gliding horizontally back and forth on rollers, giving you shimmering vibrato with the lightest of touches

zZounds Expert Review
Stetsbar's Stoptail Tremolo System is a great consideration for a player that is looking to add a tremolo arm (yeah, it's really vibrato, I know) to a stop-tailpiece guitar. Unlike some aftermarket replacements that require modification to your guitar's body, this Stetsbar is a really straightforward surface-mounting arm that does not mar the body. I took a look around my stash of guitars recently and realized that they're all whammy-bar-equipped, with the exception of one "devil-horned" knockoff that has a Tune-O-Matic style bridge. This is the perfect drop-on modification for that project. Pop off the bridge screws, unscrew the tailpiece, pop on the Stetsbar, lube your nut, restring, -- and bam, you're whammying. This "Stoptail" model is perfect for those looking to put a whammy on a Firebird, SG, or V-shaped guitar.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fabulous!"
Overall: This is the best designed trem out there. I'm mainly strat guy these days, but I've always had a soft spot for Les Pauls. This trem is every bit as stable as my strat trem (and mine are floated and very stable). If I build another strat,(or tele) I'm going to put a stetsbar on it. The bridge/tailpiece moves forward/backward when used, and that is a brilliant design (vs a bigsby which just slackens the strings, causing them to slide and/or bind on the stoptail saddles). As others have noted, you need a properly cut and lubricated nut or you will have intonation problems. I use a mixture of Teflon lubricant and graphite on the stock LP nut and tuning stability is rock solid. Easy to install, but watch everything you can about the installs on YouTube before attempting to do so. Takes a little patience to get setup perfectly (like any trem) but you'll be rewarded and amazed with the results. Top quality, USA made parts. The nickel finish looks great on my goldtop LP (I was worried it would look a little gaudy, but it's perfect - very classy looking).

Overall: Great tremolo for a tune-o-matic bridge, without any permanent alterations needed. The bar movement is set nice for my liking, with a smooth transition between upward and downward movements, with no change in tone for me, and slight increase in sustain. There was one problem during the installation that was quickly resolved by calling Eric from Stetsbar. The two bushings for the bridge piece needed to be pulled out to install the stetsbar flush on my guitar (Epi LP Standard). Great price for a great product, just be sure to have either a graphite nut, or purchase the fine tuners available. With the fine tuners a behind the nut locking system will be needed.
