Product Details

Modern design locking bridge and tailpiece! A unique Tune-o-matic style bridge and matching "stop" tailpiece combo for solidbody guitar.

Lightweight bridge for distinctive tone. Both mount on Allen height-adjustable studs in threaded bushings.

Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the bridge and tailpiece set.

The Gotoh 510 Tune-o-matic Bridge is designed for absolute stability. Allen screws lock the individually adjustable saddles, height adjustment studs (this bridge uses no thumbscrews) and the overall bridge intonation angle. The result is better sustain, rock-solid intonation and improved string energy transfer. The saddles have helpful starter grooves to guide your notching files. Made of zinc. M8 x 1.25 thread.

The Gotoh 510 "Stop" Tailpiece pivots on unique ball-end threaded locking studs, for straight string pull. Spring retainer clips prevent the tailpiece from falling off when the strings are removed, to save your guitar's finish from accidental dings. Made of lightweight aluminum for distinctive tone. M8 x 1.25 thread.

 /><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.

Nice bridge

I have not yet installed this on my current build, however on inspection this bridge is clearly very solid. I really like that the overall intonation is adjustable and that nearly everything locks (it would be nice if the tailpiece locked to the studs, but it does clip in quite solidly, and that's the only thing that doesn't lock). The chrome finish is also nearly flawless, and the look of the bridge piece is unique, clean and classic. The only concern I have is explaining to the customer what all the hex keys do! It would be good if the bridge came with instructions to pass on to the not so technically inclined.

an upgrade that works!

Hi everyone!
I installed this Gotoh510 with the tail-piece in my Qingdao Epiphone Les Paul Custom.I used the original studs (because I suspect they are well glued to the guitar-body),But the the metric stud-screws and the rest of the kit is perfect fit..With the hex-screws on the bridge tightened well to the stud-screws,I could actually hear the improvement on the sustain and the tone as well,Really cool stuff this,I would certaintly recommend this product as an good/useful upgrade to all the Epiphone Les Paul-owners around!

The absolute best T.O.M. design to date!

I've used this Gotoh 510 locking bridge on quite a few guitars thus far. Most recently on a '05 Ibanez IC400 Iceman. You simply cannot beat the solid tonal response you get from the strings with one of these. The improvement in sustain is also very dramatic. I've never used the tailpiece though, so I cannot say anything about that.
