Love almost everything..

By Jim_H from Bothell, USA

Works great, easy to install, excellent quality, adjustments all work very well. My only complaint is the saddle height screws are too long. They stick up above the saddle way too far to be comfortable. I've tried to find shorter ones, but the threads don't match on any of the replacements I've tried.

Works great, looks great!

I got a gold one for a custom guitar I was building. Worked beautifully and was super easy to install. I only give it 4 stars because I didn't use the saddles, but replaced them with Ghost saddles. Made it a bit expensive for a metal plate...

Very Good Bridge

Excellent quality and very precise. A bit expensive but does the job.

Gotoh Hardtail Bridge

These bridges are always true. Eazy to adjust intonation and string height. And if you follow Stew-Mac's guide to placement you can't go wrong. I've used these bridges on many of the guitars I've built and never had a problem with them.

Works great!

Easy to put on, easy to adjust, everything is deburred so it doesn't cut into your hand like some of the Fender bridges.

Great Bridge

Excellent bridge, very good quality!

Nice Bridge!

Installed one of the chrome bridges on my newest build, great quality and looks good too. It's comfortable to rest your hand on, no sharp or irritating edges and all the intonation screws operate smoothly as well as the saddle height screws. It's heavy and solid and has great sustain, especially on my neck through guitar. I've used the cheaper hardtail bridges from another company and the quality difference is very obvious. I will use these again!

Great pcs!

I used this bridge in place of a Callaham unit and am very happy with it. The customer loved it too.

A Good Quality Hard-Tail Bridge

By FNH from Massachusetts
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, May 26, 2012

The title says it all... This is a good quality hard-tail bridge that intonates nicely and adds just a little bit of mass. I put it on almost every FnH Guitar we produce.
