2"14"2-29/32"M8 x 1.25

This unique post-mounted brass bridge has low-friction grooved roller saddles for smooth string return, plus advanced features for improved intonation stability. The holes for the bridge posts are elongated to allow overall intonation adjustment, and allen screws lock the bridge to the posts. The reversible roller saddles are individually adjustable for precise string intonation, and also lock to the bridge with allen screws. Allen wrench and thumbwheel mounting posts with bushings are included.

 /><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.

What should have been

By Terry B from Louisville, Oh

Put this on a guitar that I just couldn't get the intonation right. After installing everything went smooth.

Great Product and Service

I originally ordered this product along with a few other things. Lo and behold, it was missing from the order when it came. A quick call to StewMac and they shipped another one out right away, which got here two days later. To boot, the bridge dropped right into my Penco Japanese SG clone with a Bigsby, and really does a great job keeping it in tune.

I use this bridge on all my Gibson's. I even suggest them for my customers. Stew Mac doesn't price it way up there either. This bridge locks to the posts. The rollers save on string breakage and help keep you in tune. Teamed up with a good slippery nut and locking tuners, ya can't go wrong.

Good for Bigsbys

By Flintkid from Clarksville, TN

I've used this with both a Gretch Baritone and an Epiphone Les Paul. With these bridges a decent teflon nut and locking tuners the guitars hold tune wonderfully. My only two complaints would be that the rollers cannot be removed from the chassis they sit in (if you notice on the les paul I didn't paint them). I would like to see some type of replacement roller I could buy in the future kind of like what Kahler tremolos have, though barring that I would buy again. The second complaint is color which I also wish there were more variety. Though, I can say firsthand (and from the image of my les paul) it is possible to paint these as long as you use car paint a number of coats, with a clear coat on top. But only if you're okay leaving the part with the roller in it chrome and not painting it. This means painting the posts and the metal base only (I reiterate do not paint the rollers). As far as maintenance goes it's recommend you oil the rollers on occasion.

This bridge works!

I have an Epiphone Riviera P93 that would refuse to stay in tune and this bridge made the instrument much more dependable and it stays in tune.

Fixed a Near-Fatal Production Line Mistake

By Dave Miller from Smithfield, VA
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, February 10, 2012

Purchased a Left-Hand Hagstrom Ultra Swede, which was equipped with a Gotoh Tune-O-Matic. Problem was not with the bridge, but the stud placement, which had the slight angle of a production RIGHT-hand model. The bridge did not have the travel required for .09-.046 custom light strings, as well as the odd look of the bridge angle.

After much research, the roller bridge had the required spacing, stud size and the fully adjustable stud adjustments, just what I needed. Item arrived quickly, and with minimal effort, I had the roller bridge installed and adjusted perfectly. Fit and finish is great for this price, and stud adjusters fit standard M8 threads.

This beautiful guitar was saved from functional disappointment by Stew Mac.


Rock N' Lock Roller Bridge

By In Orbit Studios from Hawthorne, CA
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, February 09, 2012

I had a Bigsby B7 professionally installed along with Stewart Mac's Locking Roller Bridge on my Epiphone Dot. I recommend you do the same. I was told the bridge didn't quite fit and further modifications were required, but all in all I'm more than fully satisfied with the functionality of the bridge... It was well worth the extra money and effort!

Roll In My Sweet Baby's Saddles

By Steven B from Covington, GA, USA
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, January 05, 2012

Excellent excellent excellent. Put on my Epi Dot (tight fit) and may pair it with a Lyre Vibrato in the future. This upgrade made sense for me and turned out to be better than convenient: it is the perfect match for my current and future setup (lightweight stopbar) Buy em up..

I am using this bridge in the guitars I build; first I used it in combination with a bigsby vibrato, excellent results, and now in combination with a stop tailpiece, the roller piece has more surface of contact with the string than a normal tune o matic bridge, also friction between string and wheel is less, distance between strings is given, lots of liberty in movements when adjusting length of scale of each string. GOOD VERY GOOD
