Gotoh Bridges

By Tex from Perth West Australia

I can rest assure anyone who buys a Gotoh Bridge from Stew Mac`s wont be disappointed with it, especially if they are using it as a replacement on a NoN Fender Strat copy. I have just put one on a 1979 U.S made Fender Strat, that I have just repaired after a badly fitted Floyd Rose bridge damaged the bridge area. What got me noticing its quality was its weight. Several replacements weighed in at around 240 grms, and not only felt "tinny" but sounded even worse. The Gotoh bridge weighed in at 359.3grms and had the gat screeming with restored depth of tone and sustain. The extra weight makes the whole thing quality again.

I wont ever use any other Brand again when repairing a Strat. There is no substitute for quality and this bridge supplies it. Five stars outta five in my book.

Good bridge

I play the guitar for 17 years and I know Gotoh for a long time but I never had a guitar with Gotoh pieces. This is my first Gotoh and I am very pleased with the quality. The color that I¦ve choosen (black) is a good contrast with the wood. I am very happy with my purchase.

Excellent Squire upgrade

By Vlaho from Dubrovnik, Croatia

If you're looking for sound upgrade of your Squire this will make a huge difference. Steel block (much larger than in old tremolo) was crucial for sustain, which is now longer, tone is clearer and brighter.

Installment can be tricky if the top plate screws holes are not in the same position like the old ones, but you can easily fix this thing up.

Easy Strat Upgrade

By 50SGUY60 from Arizona

I purchased this kit a month or so ago and installed it on my MIM Classic 50's maple neck Strat. Working slowly and carefully, I did it myself. All kit parts looked good however I used the original and longer Fender top plate screws for a stronger attachment point. I only used two, one at each end with the 4 center holes left open to make sure there was no friction in the middle of the plate. These hold fine and this is a common practice. In conclusion, the mod looks nearly identical, sounds better due to the steel block probably and stays in tune better. It also eliminated the sloppy trem arm problem that plagues Fender zinc block units which was my prime objective. I think sound wise, sustain is slightly better, tone a little brighter, note to note clarity a little clearer. I like the improvement and would do it again.

Worked great on my Classic 60's strat. Much better than the original.
