 /><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.

Gotoh Bridge

By Eleanor Lim from Australia

Terrific tune a matic bridge and give your guitar a better tone..smooth adjustments and replace the original ibanez bridge nicely. This was installed on my ibanez AF85 VLS and it's great.

This allows for better intonation that the stock bridge on my Epi Dot and I am not breaking strings anymore.....great choice, cheap and easy to install.

This was money well-spent. I was finally able to intonate my Epi '56 Gold Top, and in combination with the Gotoh lightweight tailpiece, got a boatload more sustain and a clearer, bell-like tone in the bargain!

I liked the first bridge so much that I bought a second one for another guitar of mine. Excellent build quality that adds sustain! Best of all - no more retaining wire buzzing!(It was driving me nuts). Highly recommended. Thanks

Awesome bridge even more awesome price!

Awesome bridge, get rid of the retainer wire rattle from my Epiphone Les Paul Standard factory bridge. A lot more easier to intonate the guitar. It does sound a tad brighter than the stock bridge. The bushing that came with it is a bit smaller than the original one in the guitar. No big deal, the stud will screw right into the stock bushing just fine.

Great Bridge

I installed the Gotoh Tune-o-matic Bridge on a guitar kit I was building to help get intonation perfect. while the Gotoh did that it also stepped up sustain and perhaps overall volume somehow, it seems louder anyway. Gone is the annoying buzz of the wire retainer on my previous bridge! Now, if StewMac would sell the screws and nuts for the Gotoh separately.......I may need some in the future

Great Product, Great Price

I bought this as a replacement for an Epiphone Les Paul stock bridge that had a horrible buzz from the retaining wire. No buzz with this bridge and it vastly improved sustain as well. Highly recommend this as a replacement to the stock Epi bridge and the posts fit the stock bushings.

Here is an example of excellent Japanese quality! I use Gotoh bridges and tuners on all my guitars, and I am totally satisfied with the quality.

Improved Tone

By Chicago Matt from Woodstock, GA

I was not unhappy with the bridge on my limited edition Epiphone Dot, but was intrigued by the many reviews that reported better tone with the Gotoh. At this price, why not give it a try? So I had a buddy notch it out better and was going to install it but was put off by the fact that the bridge did not fit as tightly as the original, even on its own studs. It was a little wobbly with no strings on. So I packed it back up and let it sit for a half year. Finally decided to give it a try last week. DANG! Doesn't wobble at all with the strings on. But more important, this bridge has definitely improved the tone of this guitar! Louder with more clarity and less muddiness. Great upgrade for little money.
