Towner USA Releases Down Tension Bar

The bar is designed to be used in contribution with the after-market installation of Bigsby Tailpieces to add to the intonation of the guitar setup giving more control over the break angle of the strings.

San Diego, CA (January 16, 2013) -- Towner USA is announcing the official launch of their Down Tension Bar at Winter NAMM 2013. The bar is designed to be used in contribution with the after-market installation of Bigsby Tailpieces to add to the intonation of the guitar setup giving more control over the break angle of the strings.

  • The Towner USA down tension bar mounts in place of of the stop tailpiece on existing studs.
  • The Towner USA down tension bar provides a VST, variable string tension, to control the break angle between the bridge and vibrato tailpiece by adjusting the studs to the desired height. Thus, helping to sustain a better guitar tone.
  • The Towner USA down tension bar alleviates the guitar owner from drilling holes in the body of the guitar, when installing a Bigsby B3, Bigsby B11, Bigsby B30 or Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
