 /><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.

Wish I had done this long ago

I swapped out the stock bridge on my Epiphone Sheraton II for this Gotoh bridge and what an absolute difference it made. More adjustment with the Gotoh unit made intonation a breeze. Saw mention of others using the supplied posts/bushings given the better quality; I had to swap them out on mine as the stock Epiphone posts were smaller than those that came with the Gotoh, and one of the stock bushings had some bad threads that would not allow full insertion of the Gotoh post. Change out was relatively simple and straight forward, popped the old bushings out and pressed the new Gotoh bushings in their place. The entire process took me a little more than 30 minutes:removal of stock components, installation of the Gotoh components, intonation, re-tune the guitar and play. Without question the easiest intonation I have ever attempted and the new tone is fantastic. A few very minor adjustments this morning and she is ripping like never before. I would definitely recommend this product as an upgrade to Epiphone Sheraton guitars; this is definitely a "must-do" upgrade if you want to get the most from your Epiphone instrument.

Took my Epiphone to a new level

I ordered this for my Epiphone Les Paul Classic-T. Tunes to pitch faster than before. Intonation is amazing. Something I didn't anticipate is that the sustain is now longer. The only other adjustment I had to do was raise the tailpiece, as the strings now touched it. Used the pins that came with it and my existing mounting. Seems a little loose so I will be replacing those with the ones that came with this bridge. This is a must have if you have one of those crappy bridges that has the wire retaining the intonation adjustment screws.

Perfect replacement for Epiphone G400 Bridge

By

This bridge was an exact drop-in replacement for the OEM bridge that came on a G400 that I was doing some upgrades to. The OEM bridges have a problem with intonation and even string height closer to the body. This Gotoh replacement was the perfect solution, I was able to set the individual string bridges to approximate what I had on the original, drop it in re-tune and the intonation was perfect. Plus now the guitar setup for slide plays perfectly because the srings are even (don't have to have individual bridge sets turned 180 deg). Thank you StewMac.
