Adjustable Wraparound Bridge

About This Item

A modern reproduction of the first combo bridge/tailpiece to feature individually adjustable saddles.

The wraparound design brought accurate intonation to Les Paul Junior®, SG Junior® and similar solidbody guitars, and has been popular since the 1970s.

String spread
2-3/64"
(51.82mm)
Saddle radius
12"
(304.80mm)
Stud spacing
3-1/4"
(82.55mm)
Stud threads
M8 x 1.25mm

Two alignment screws adjust the overall intonation. The height-adjustable mounting studs include knurled bushings. The strings load from the front of the die-cast base, wrap over the back of the bridge, and over the notched saddles. Drill 7/16" (11mm) holes for the bushings.

About bridge & tailpiece measurements

Bridge and Tailpiece reference image

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.

Tip: Slotting Tune-o-matic style saddles
Nut slotting files work great for metal saddles. Choose your file size as you would when slotting a nut: use the same gauge as the string, or a few thousandths larger. After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

Good Deal!

The StewMac Adjustable Wraparound bridge is the perfect solution to the standard wraparound bridges that come with Les Paul Jr, Epiphone SL guitars (and others). They allow for perfect intonation over the standard model. But there is a warning: The bridge sits higher than the standard bridge, and even when lowering the mounting bolts all the way down, it is still tall. But StewMac offers a solution: the StewMac tapered Shims. On my Epiphone SL, the .5-degree shim was the perfect solution to raise the neck angle to lower the action.

Overall, a great couple of accessories that make the Epiphone SL a very playable guitar.

A review in practicality

Beautiful piece for the money! Reliable, high performance, boosted tone and sustain beyond expected. However, be sure of whether or not the dimensions will fit your guitar, as this bridge is significantly thicker than the standard epiphone wraparound bridge for the les paul junior. As a result, i had to lower the bridge to its absolute minimum height yet the action is still a wee bit too high. In conclusion: very high quality product.

Fixed my problem.

I put this on my Orange Danelectro DC-59 reissue that I bought used and soon (after about 10 months) realized the bridge on the guitar was bent and I couldn't take it off making string changes a time consuming nightmare. The new bridge sounds way better, I didn't even need to adjust anything at all, and it slips right off for string changes. I haven't popped the high e string yet, it's only been a week, but it kept happening with the old bridge. It's a seemingly good value too.

Very Adjustsble Bridge

Added this bridge to my Epiphone junior. It had an unadjustable wrap around bridge and the guitars intonation was off. This bridge slipped right into place. Didn't even need to change the posts. Was able to get perfect intonation on every string. I'm impressed with the quality and how much better the guitar plays and sounds.

Good bridge at a good price

It's not a Gotoh or anything. But for the price it's great. The metal seems a bit soft, the slots for the screws marre somewhat easily, but fit & finish are good and intonation is easy to set, and stable so far. It's well worth the price.

I replaced the bridge for a Prince Cloud guitar with this bridge and I was pleasantly surprised. The intonation was easy and my guitar plays like a charm! Love it!

Great sounding bridge

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this bridge to replace a fixed intonation-compensated hardtail bridge on my Epiphone SG. This bridge fit perfectly on the existing mounting posts, which was a huge plus, and I was finally able to get great intonation on all 6 strings. It sounds so much better.

Two drawbacks:
1) This bridge has a longer wraparound length than my old bridge, which meant that my old strings (which were flatwounds and still with plenty of life left) weren't long enough to reach the tuning pins - so I had to make an unexpected purchase of a new set of strings. Not a huge deal, but I was trying to keep costs down, so it was a little bit of a bummer.
2) This bridge is thicker, vertically, than the old bridge, so even with the action screws all the way down against the guitar body, the action is still higher than I had it with the previous bridge. Again, not the end of the world as the action was a little too low previously, and I got more than occasional fret-buzz, but I don't love that my action is higher than it was even though I'm at the absolute minimum that I can go without adjusting my neck relief.
