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 on Core PRS Starla

By
(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.

A must buy as far as i'm concerned. Easier to set intonation, stays in tune better, and I was able to get a nicer setup than with the stock bridge. Gibson should have switched to these as standard a long time ago. Oh, and it looks cool as well.

Lived it / hated it

I bought a epiphone wildkat guitar some years back. I never liked playing it because using the bigsby would cause tuning issues so it just sat in the corner collecting dust. I look for a roller bridge that would work with my guitar and thought this look like a winner. I read all the reviews and seem like a solid bridge. I didn't realize that I had to drill out the bushings treads that we're in my wildkat to make this work. I almost didn't install the bridge because of that, but I did drill it out anyway. I figured I wasn't really hurting the resale value because it wasn't a whole lot to start with. Anyway I tapped the new York farrell's in place and set in the bridge. Restrung the bigsby and set the bridge height, all this was great an ez enuff. Tuning was a lot of fun ( something no one tells you about) then I set the intonation and I was done and man does it make all the difference in the world. Very happy I did this upgrade. Well then why did I love it / hate it, I never like moding a guitar in a way that I can never change it back. As for the Nashville style bridge that was on the wildkat well that found a home on a guitar I was having trouble keeping intonation on. So now I'm happy with two of guitars.

I purchase this bridge for my 1995 Gibson Studio. This was a direct bolt-on. I did not use the studs. This was the easies mod. I ever did.

This bridge replaced the original with no effort at all. It fit exactly as described in the ad, and is a big improvment over the non roller bridge that came with my Epiphone.

I bought this for my Gibson '61' re-issue SG with Lyre trem, Not only do the rollers work as they should, This bridge is so precision it allowed me to lower my action to a height I never thought possible with ZERO fret buzz (Even un-plugged!) Very solid and well made, It also improved the already insane sustain!

The thing I didn't know

The roller bridge itself is a very nicely well crafted piece. However, it is not a plug and play piece. Or at least not for an epiphone wildkat Royale. The (studs) are different diameter and spacing than the tunomatic bridge.

Great upgrade for the heavy hitting guitarist! Super smooth intonation process, and no sharp edges to worry about

I found a 2007 Unsung facory Korea) built Casino which is the far best post US &Japan made Epi...I have installed a Bigsby vibrato,so the Roller Bridge was the best way to go.But the original thumbwheel studs height adjusment are larger with smaller shaft in diameter,An easy way to avoid pulling out the original thumbwheel kit is to simply force down the original posts slightly an let the bridge sit on the thumwheels (even though they are too large.It took 2 minutes and the Bridge woorks perfectly while all strings clear the bridge.Perfect !!!!
