Schaller Roller Bridge

About This Item

Schaller's unique variation of the Tune-o-matic bridge features low-friction roller saddles for smoother tuning and tremolo action.

These intonation-adjustable brass saddles allow adjustable string spread, and are angled slightly for correct alignment with the offset mounting studs and threaded bushings. The bridge can be used with standard Gibson® guitar tailpieces.

Use a 1/4" drill bit to install 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.

Great upgrade for Bigsby-equipped guitars

This bridge replaced a Tune-o-matic bridge that came installed on an Epiphone Casino. The bridge posts are incompatible with the stock inserts; however, I was able to re-use the original bridge posts with a few shims rather than trying to replace the inserts. Works great! Much better tuning stability.

Schaller Roller bridge with Gibson Les Paul Studio

i bought this because the stock bridge had the strings lined up well off center of the pickups and the high E was totally off and there was some buzzing with that set up and stay staying in tune during a set was a problem. It was a direct fit with out any modifications. During the install I was very surprised to find that the stock bridge posts were somewhat loose in the holes which may have caused the tuning problems. The Schaller fit perfect. The improvement in tone was an awesome surprise and the sustain is also improved. The install took only about 15 minutes plus the setup time.

I bought this as a replacement for my SG Tone Pro bridge and man am I glad I did ! No mods necessary as it was a 10 second drop in replacement. I immediately noticed and increase in sustain and my intonation as as near to perfect as I can get it !
