About bridge & tailpiece measurements

Bridge and Tailpiece reference image

String spread is the distance between the centers of the outer strings on a bridge or tailpiece.

Saddle radius determines the arc formed by all the individual saddle heights, and is similar to the measurement of a fretboard.

Stud/post spacing is the distance between the centers of the mounting posts of a bridge or 'stop' tailpiece.

Doesn't fit snugly on Epiphone LP Posts

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Great product, great service, doesn't fit snugly on posts of an Epiphone LP (2014 Standard model). This is strange because the posts provided are exactly the same size as the ones in my guitar already so why wouldn't they make their own bridge fit snugly around their own posts? I bought this because the retaining wire was giving me a headache and I just filed these new bridge saddles down with an acetylene torch tip cleaner: No I don't have $13 per bridge file to spend and it took like half an hour and cost me $4 from Home Depot for the set which I also used for a new nut. The screws are longer so you don't have to flip the saddles to intonate and it installed really easily. I would only install this as an upgrade to an Epiphone. If you have a Gibby just get a Tonemaster or a direct replacement and file the saddles from scratch (yes the hammer banging on the string thing works look at the awesome tutorial on StewMac). Be prepared to use electrical tape or similar to get the bridge snug to the posts. Do you think it affects my sonic transfer?!?! Oh no!

Perfect fit for my Epiphone LP. Dropped it on the existing posts, no problems. With a small socket I was able to reverse a saddle for intonation on the G string. Well made for the price point. Solid.

If you need to upgrade a bridge on a Far East made guitar this is the one you want. Better than the stock bridges on most of these guitars. Metric studs and threads for a nice drop in replacement. Excellent price point too.

Say what!!..???

Okay first the back stop And Now this!!!
I know things are not going to fit perfectly well, but this is another minor thing that is like "WHY"!!!!?
I'm happy don't get me wrong it is also solid but the diameter of the holes are not spread out or not large enough to fit. Or its my guitar...? But it's minor I will just make the holes just a tincey wincey bigger and hopefully it will make me happier.

Gotoh Les Paul bridge

(Customer's Reviews)


The stock bridge had run out of room for intonation (a common problem). The Gotoh bridge: a) was a drop in (but use the screw in posts furnished with it; b) solved the intonation problem because the bridge is wider than stock; and c) improved the tone of the guitar. All these improvements came at a very reasonable price.

Was very easy to install, was easy to get the correct intonation, looks great and feels solid. Simple upgrade at a great value. Put this on your Epiphone.

What intonation issues?

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Dropped this bridge into my 2014 Epiphone LP PTP. Instantly took care of my intonation issues. It also helped my strings to ring out more! This, coupled with a Graphtech nut, yeah, major, yet cheap upgrade!

Side note, I will no longer be top wrapping my strings, so don't judge me! ;)
