 /><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.

This becomes miraculous tailpiece

Excellent product, it was only installed on my Les Paul and the result was really surprising. I have a Les Paul is Asian and I know, suspicious timber, construction questionable, but finally solved my problem with the pitch and quality of octaves that were horrible so far. Neither had to go to a luthier. Thanks for the great relief StewMac.

Great product! I got this "Nashville" version with the larger studs to complement the Gotoh aluminium stop tailpiece for my "Greeny" LP build. Well made, well priced and does what it's supposed to do.

Clean up your Sound

Epiphone makes a very nice guitar for the money, however they fail at doing the small details that really cause the guitar to have issues. One is the bridge; they continue to put cheap bridges on their guitars that make a rattling noise from the metal spring they use and this translates into poor sound. I have replaced the bridges that come on all my Epiphone's with the 1511-n Gotoh Tune-O-Matic and you can't believe how much better the guitar sets up (the action), sounds and how well you can intonate the guitar. I highly recommend this replacement on all Epiphone's that come with the standard spring loaded bridge. The set-up is easy and the pay-off is well worth the time.

The Right way to go!!!

Thank you!!!

Great replacement for epi bridge.

This was a great replacement for the cheap pot metal bridge that came on my 1988 Epiphone LP Custom. There are a couple of negatives. The posts don't screw into the original bushings tightly, leaving some room for play. Secondly, the posts that came with the bridge aren't a tight fit, meaning there's about 3/100ths of an inch play in the bridge post join, leaving wiggle room that isn't good for a TOM bridge. This issue could easily be resolved by putting some set screws into the bridge, similar to another replacement bridge. (I won't mention the brand) That would completely solve the issue though. With these shortcomings in mind, I'll say that it was a 100% improvement in tone over the original hardware. The guitar plays and sounds soooo much better. Thanks Stew-mac!

Excellent replacement I waited for

I have long time sought for right bridge over the Internet that would fit my guitar. The difficulty is created by the fact that I could not accurately measure with ruler or caliper my bridge. I scanned the old bridge together with a ruler and compare it in the drawing program. I asked for an opinion on StewMac and received confirmation that the Gotoh 1511-G could be the right choice. Indeed, everything was consistent, right dimension, even thread of the studs, and for some 15 minutes I replaced the bridge and adjust the guitar! Now no one buzzing, rattling, bridge height is easily adjusted, and saddles too. Gold color match the color of the tuners. The sound is fuller, more massive, better sustain and sound of treble and bass strings is now articulated, more natural and better. Gotoh is the right choice, the bridge is worth every coin, and now I regret that I did not order and stop-tail too in the same color. But I will, probably in the next order.
