The only replacement option

Look no further, this archtop bridge is better than you will find on other vendors sites. The quality of the hardware is great, but the quality of the wood is noticeably better than the competitions. They even just feel more sturdy in your hand.

Great for an Ibanez AG95

By

I bought this for my Ibanez AG95. I felt the metal bridge it came with sounded harsh and a wood one would have a better tone. I order the Ebony one and am very happy with it. I had to sand the bottom of it to make a better fit but it sounds and fits great. I only wish that it came with a Gold Thumbwheel option so it would match the rest of the guitar's hardware.

A truly accurate compound bridge.It made my Super 400 C very articulate at every fret.Improved the tone to a very woody quality.

Quality Component

This ebony bridge and saddle perfectly filled my expectation. The height adjustment works smoothly, and the ebony components are crafted with quality and precision. The change from metal tunomatic to ebony has literally transformed the sound of my archtop.

Perfect Intonation!

Bought ebony version to replace the original bridge on my Ibanez AF151F. Required sanding to match the arch of the top, but Stew-Mac offers an ingenious jig that greatly simplifies the task.

good replacement

I used this to replace the plastic bridge on a Godin guitar. I got the ebony one & like it a lot. Looks & sounds better.Very minor sanding of the feet to fit the contour of the arch top was all it needed.

Does the job

Base is noticeably light-weight and needed a final clean-up sanding. Otherwise, acceptable. A gold or brass post/thumbwheel option would be appreciated, as would the option for an unwound G.

Very good product, worth the effort to install properly

The bridge I ordered was the rosewood version for my Epiphone ES-175. Was encouraged by the previous reviews that installed it on the same guitar although I took the plunge and got the rosewood instead. The bridge itself came with a healthy gloss and the quality shows. However the one that I got had one corner slightly rough and jagged, nothing some sandpaper couldn't fix. Took me 3 seconds. I tested the difference between sanding the feet to fit the contour of the body and not and the tone was much fuller when properly sanded. Otherwise it might sound slightly nasally. Very acoustic like tones from this rosewood model. Brings out a lot of interesting woody harmonics when playing chords not unlike an acoustic guitar. Playing single notes produces full tones and turning down the tone knob can still give a warm tone peppered with bright acoustic flavour which would be hard to get with the metal tune-o-matic. Like a previous review mentioned however there is a slight loss in sustain. For me it's a trade off I'm willing to accept for the complex tones you can coax from this bridge but it does make the guitar feel quite different. I wish I had the ebony one for comparison but this is the most apt description I could do. Bridge comes unslotted, but this is by no means a flaw. You can adapt this to your preference or to fit your guitar. Generally this bridge is good to go with minimal work out of the box. I finished my purchase with some gold top hat knobs just to compliment the 1960s ES-175 aesthetic. Great products from stewmac, will be ordering more stuff from them in future.
