The height is thumbwheel-adjustable from 1" to approximately 1-1/4". Saddles are pre-slotted and adjustable to set accurate string intonation.

 /><font color=About bridge & tailpiece measurements

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.

Tip: Slotting Tune-o-matic style saddles
Nut slotting files work great for metal saddles. Choose your file size as you would when slotting a nut: use the same gauge as the string, or a few thousandths larger. After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

Good fit for Joe Pass

By
(Customer's Reviews)


As did another reviewer, I got this for my Epiphone Emperor II Joe Pass model. The metal part fit right over the existing base, so I did not have to use the supplied base (which was not carved to fit nor finished to match the guitar's other trim). I had to deepen the notch for the low E string with a small file, but other than that there were no installation problems and no playability problems. Tip: Be sure to mark the position of your current bridge on the guitar top before replacement, since you'll have to remove all strings (and the bridge will fall off).

Hi!

First, I'd like to say thanks for the quick and safe delivery. I have played quite a lot gigs with my previous rosewood bridge, but somehow it was always out of tune a little bit.I have even tried to get a T-O-M in London, Denmark street last year, but they couldn't help me.

Now I'm fine at last! Anytime I will need something in the future, I'll turn to You, I promise.

Thanx a lot

I got this bridge in order to breathe some new life into a Mid Fifties Kay K-152 B Archtop guitar that I found in the garbage some time ago. The bridge was missing and the tuners were very brittle so I started with the bridge and this was fine for the project. I will be buying a set of tuners for it soon. Here is a picture of it prior to rescue.

I used this bridge for a hollow body electric arch-top. Great quality and easy set up. I ended up ordering a second one for one of the home arch-top acoustic instruments using it as research bridge. A very happy surprise

I purchased this bridge for a restoration of a mid '60s Harmony thin-line archtop electric guitar. A Gotoh Tune-O-Matic bridge and base for this price is a real bargain. Thanks for another top quality product from my friends at Stew-Mac.
