Golden Age Roller Bridge

About This Item

The only roller bridge that matches the 12" radius of the Nashville Tune-O-Matic. Low-friction brass roller saddles let the strings move freely and return to accurate pitch.

We designed this bridge to work with Bigsby vibratos, in place of the Nashville Tune-o-matic. This is the only roller bridge that matches the 12" radius of the Nashville, so you maintain the string action you're used to. We gave it a low profile to keep the strings clear of the bridge body too, eliminating a frequent source of vibrato problems.

Thumbwheel height-adjustment studs and knurled bushings are included.

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.

Perfect replacement

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I put this bridge on a 2012 Gibson SG Standard to make my Bigsby work smoother. Installation could not have been easier. I basically just removed the old bridge and threaded height risers, screwed in the new height risers (correct American thread as it's going in an American made instrument), and snapped on the new bridge. I noticed the width between the posts is ever so slightly off so I had to lay the bridge on top of 1 post and then gently push the bridge towards the other post until it snapped into pace. I'm thinking that this is by design so the bridge clamps on nice and tight and doesn't require set screws to lock it in. The rollers are nice and smooth and this looks great on my SG with Bigsby as it looks a lot like the old wider style harmonica bridges that Gibson used in the 70's. And of course, being the correct 12" radius certainly helps as well. I couldn't be happier with this bridge.

Perfect Replacement on Core PRS Starla

(Customer's Reviews)


My recently acquired 2010 PRS Starla (Core, not Starla 2) had terrible tuning stability. I researched and looked and fretted over what might be a good roller bridge replacement. Never found the specs on the existing bridge, but went ahead and bought a Golden Age. It was perfect in terms of radius, post spacing, string spacing and thread size. Didn't have to replace the bushings in the body, just put in the new posts, adjusted the height to the new bridge and intonated the guitar. Tremendous improvement. (To be complete, I also installed a grooved Callaham front roller, but I bet the majority of the improvement is because of the bridge).

A great value.

I used this bridge on a guild guitar and placed it in the right position,instead of the old one. My customer is very satisfied for the choice of this bridge because the guitar is really in tune.
