Goldo Downholder TGDDH Nickel

Many Les Paul and ES players miss a tremolo system on their guitars. To install a “horse-shoe” style trem system, (Bigsby, etc.) normally four holes must be drilled in the top of the guitar and then larger trem systems which include pressure roller bar usually sit very close to the bridge, which can cause problems.
The Downholder is mounted 1:1 in the existing mounting holes of the Stop tailpiece and allows the installation of a larger trem system without pressure roller (e.g Bigsby B3 or similar), whereby it brings the strings with sufficient pressure to the level of the bridge. With this combination Downholder/trem system without pressure roller, any guitar with Stop tailpiece can be transformed into a well-functioning tremolo guitar without having to modify anything on the wood or hardware.
The Downholder comes with both metric and US-size screws.
The spacing between the studs can be adjusted flexibly! The shaft is simply pushed loosely through the mounting holes into the studs and then fixed with one set screw each. An extra shaft (different length) is also included.
