 /><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.

Replaced my stock Epiphone LP bridge and got rid of the buzz from retaining wire. The bridge also helped with intonation and tone. Solid product

Great improvement in tone and sustain for my Epiphone '56 Reissue Les Paul Gold Top! And when I added the Nickel Gotoh 'Stop' Tailpiece, I got even better. Both pieces swapped out easily.

I bought this bridge as drop in replacement on my Ephiphone Dot....Worked flawlessly. Unfortunately I didn't keep it very long. Within a month I'd purchased a different system and now am satisfied with what I have. This bridge is a MUCH needed change to stock and works great.

I like it a lot, no more metal twangling while plucking strings, better material than my stock Epiphone, better intonation, better sounding open chords with distortion. It's a must have upgrade!

I was worried about the loose fit on the posts but it's not really a problem. It doesn't move after you put the strings on.

The sound definitely improved. Do not rattle anything thicker sound. Nests under the bridge put the old ones. New little small. I was ready for it and I have no complaints. Very pleased larger than the original course of the saddles. Impressions only positive. Thanks to Stewart-MacDonald's.

I read a ton of reviews and forums about bridges before I ordered this one. This bridge is a huge improvement over the stock one. The bridge fit perfectly with the included posts and stock bushings. I am going to order another one for my Epiphone Les Paul. A great investment!

Gotoh TOM on Sheraton II

I bought the gold one to replace the oem on the Sheraton II. The Epi bridge is garbage. The screws don't stay where you put them and the range is insufficient. The factory-placed bass stud was not placed back far enough on the guitar, so even on the new one, I had to reverse some of the sliders. To do that, you need to remove the nut and screw from the slider. Before you do this, put some isopropyl alcohol on the nut to dissolve the threadlocker. The screw will then come out easily. After you reverse the slider, you don't need to reapply threadlocker. I used the original studs. This bridge is a big improvement over the factory one -- the range, adjustment precision, and overall quality make this a wise upgrade. Another note about the Sheraton II: if it doesn't stay in tune, you need to tighten the screws on the Grover tuner heads a bit more than you would on other tuners. I noticed that even when mine were tight, you could still touch a key and it would detune. Mine are a little harder to turn, but now they stay where I put them. This might be a common problem with all Epiphone instruments.
