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.

Good upgrade for a Chinese LP

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Got a Chinese LP style guitar as a gift and tore it apart. I replaced everything and this was a drop in fit, which is great. It has better mass and it adjusts smoothly. One note is that it WILL need the slots cut deeper. They come with barely a scratch for a slot and its not useable that way. It doesnt need much, and fortunately I have the files to do it, but if I didn't it would have been a pain. Other than that, its a solid upgrade and did make a significant difference in the guitar.

I got a couple of the Gold plated bridges for special projects and the number 1511-G with studs was PERFECT and rock solid.

Great replacement part for Epiphone

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The retainer wire on my Epiphone '58 Explorer was rattling like crazy so I ordered one of these (part # 1511-G). The screws that came with it fit the Epiphone bushings perfectly (glad I don't have to fiddle with replacing those). I haven't done any side-by-side testing, so I can't speak for any major tone improvements, but the rattle is gone!

Terrific tune a matic bridge and give your guitar a better tone..smooth adjustments and replace the original ibanez bridge nicely. This was installed on my ibanez AF85 VLS and it's great.

Cost-Effective Upgrade

This was money well-spent. I was finally able to intonate my Epi '56 Gold Top, and in combination with the Gotoh lightweight tailpiece, got a boatload more sustain and a clearer, bell-like tone in the bargain!

I liked the first bridge so much that I bought a second one for another guitar of mine. Excellent build quality that adds sustain! Best of all - no more retaining wire buzzing!(It was driving me nuts). Highly recommended. Thanks

Awesome bridge even more awesome price!

By

Awesome bridge, get rid of the retainer wire rattle from my Epiphone Les Paul Standard factory bridge. A lot more easier to intonate the guitar. It does sound a tad brighter than the stock bridge. The bushing that came with it is a bit smaller than the original one in the guitar. No big deal, the stud will screw right into the stock bushing just fine.

Great Bridge

I installed the Gotoh Tune-o-matic Bridge on a guitar kit I was building to help get intonation perfect. while the Gotoh did that it also stepped up sustain and perhaps overall volume somehow, it seems louder anyway. Gone is the annoying buzz of the wire retainer on my previous bridge! Now, if StewMac would sell the screws and nuts for the Gotoh separately.......I may need some in the future
