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.

Fantastic!

Needed to replace a very worn tune-o-matic on my 89 Gibson SG Special which has unusual large bridge posts and bushings. Worked like magic and the bridge is very high quality - similar to the Gotoh bridge / tailpiece sets also on Stewmac for a lot more! Thanks again Stewmac

I installed this in a 2009 gibson. The stud inserts dont fit gibsons, but the bridge quality is amazing.

I bought this to replace the original bridge on my MIK Epi 56 Gold Top, WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Incredible sustain, and acoustic volume increase. Thank you Stew mac.

Perfect upgrade for what was kind of a crappy Chinese LP SG Special copy. The bushings were slightly too small for the holes that had been drilled on this particular guitar , but I just put the old ones back in as the threads were the same. I had the old cheapo bridge's intonation screws maxed out on a couple of strings, but with the new one, there's a lot more room for adjustment so the intonation is now great. Improves the tone, sustain, pretty much everything feels 100% better. Well-worth the upgrade any budget/mid-range guitar.

Very high quality. Fitted my Epi G-400 without any hassles at all. Sorted out the fret buzz I had on the 21st fret. More sustain, chunckier. What else can I say? Amazing product. Very happy.

Couldn't stand the wire and this 1511-G fit perfectly on my Dot. Color doesn't quite match but the intonation is dead on now. I appreciate my friends at Vanderbilly for sending me here. Reasonable $ and it works. Works for me!

Gotoh TOMatic Bridge

Installed on Ibanez ART100. HUGE improvement over the Gibraltar III bridge (they should discontinue those as they shift sideways by about 2mm if you bend a string too hard). I had to dowel the holes and drill new ones for this bridge. Nerve wracking, but turned out well worth the effort. I LOVE this bridge now. One interesting note is that while cutting string slots is recommended, it's not absolutely necessary. The slots just behind each saddle will hold the string in place if you screw your tailpiece all the way down. I don't have problems with the strings popping out on bends either! The sustain and tone are a massive improvement. Now my $300 import sounds like a Les Paul Jr. or a Melody maker but with good intonation! The price is just too good to be true.

Excellent product, it was only installed on my Les Paul and the result was really surprising. I have a Les Paul is Asian and I know, suspicious timber, construction questionable, but finally solved my problem with the pitch and quality of octaves that were horrible so far. Neither had to go to a luthier. Thanks for the great relief StewMac.
