FDP Forum / The Gretsch Forum / Chet Atkins Bigsby arm on a 5120. Possible?

On my 5120, is it possible to just remove the stock bigsby arm and replace it with a Chet Atkins style arm. Just the arm only not the whole Bigsby set. Is this possible? Thank you!

Yes, no problem at all. I did this to a Gretsch 6119 Tennessee Rose I had and it really made the Bigsby much nicer to use.

You need to order this Bigsby Adaptor with Chet Atkins style arm complete.

Thank you Bubbalou! I have placed an order for the exact same item from the same website!

Your welcome! You can loosen the two set screws that hold the arm in place and twist the arm until it is in a position that is most comfortable to you.
