 /><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.

Sloppy fitting posts/post-holes

By elRon from AB, Canada

First of all, Stewmac is a great place to shop. Excellent service, speedy delivery, friendly, patient, expert advice. I purchased this bridge (#1511-N) as a replacement/upgrade for a 2010 Epiphone Les Paul Standard. 1) The Gotoh bushings do not match the existing holes (too narrow), but, as a consolation, the Gotoh studs work with existing bushings. 2) The Gotoh posts do not fit snugly into the Gotoh post holes. Specs indicate this is deliberate: Post-hole diameter 6.35mm, post diameter 5.94mm. I might have thought a bridge ought to be perfectly stationary, like the one I removed from the guitar, but Larry, a mild-mannered Stewmac Technical Advisor, says this is not uncommon, even with stock bridges on Gibson USA made instruments. He says the bridge will remain stationary under string tension. Time will tell.

pros: longer saddle travel for better intonation. nice nickel finish. cons: sloppy tolerance on studs, makes rattling noise while playing. it's not bad for 20 bucks, but next time i'll spend more money for a better one.

Money well spent!

BIG improvement for my Chinese Les Paul copy. Very well made, and the extra few mils of adjustment room guarantee good intonation. I will certainly buy this bridge again when I need another.

Needed to replace a very worn tune-o-matic on my 89 Gibson SG Special which has unusual large bridge posts and bushings. Worked like magic and the bridge is very high quality - similar to the Gotoh bridge / tailpiece sets also on Stewmac for a lot more! Thanks again Stewmac

I installed this in a 2009 gibson. The stud inserts dont fit gibsons, but the bridge quality is amazing.

I bought this to replace the original bridge on my MIK Epi 56 Gold Top, WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Incredible sustain, and acoustic volume increase. Thank you Stew mac.

Excellent quality.. especially for this price!

Perfect upgrade for what was kind of a crappy Chinese LP SG Special copy. The bushings were slightly too small for the holes that had been drilled on this particular guitar , but I just put the old ones back in as the threads were the same. I had the old cheapo bridge's intonation screws maxed out on a couple of strings, but with the new one, there's a lot more room for adjustment so the intonation is now great. Improves the tone, sustain, pretty much everything feels 100% better. Well-worth the upgrade any budget/mid-range guitar.

Really Great!

Very high quality. Fitted my Epi G-400 without any hassles at all. Sorted out the fret buzz I had on the 21st fret. More sustain, chunckier. What else can I say? Amazing product. Very happy.

Great replacement for the original

Couldn't stand the wire and this 1511-G fit perfectly on my Dot. Color doesn't quite match but the intonation is dead on now. I appreciate my friends at Vanderbilly for sending me here. Reasonable $ and it works. Works for me!
