Really nice bridge - 52.5mm strings spacing.
Thanks to Stewmac for very efficient service. It was perfect and they were very helpful!

This went in an old MAKO guitar. it was a bit larger than the original, so I made a new pickguard. I am impressed by how it improved the tone so much. I am happy.

A GOOD FIT

When I put some new humbuckers in my MIM '72 Tele Deluxe RI, the pole pieces didn't line up with the strings very well. Then I measured the string spread at the saddles from E to E on the Fender stock bridge... 57mm, WAY to wide to use with anything! The Gotoh has a string spread near 53mm, much more usable. Just a little precision drill skill, and everything lined up well for easy installation. This bridge sounds and feels amazing, looks great, and is easily adjustable. Now my Telecaster is the monster it should be! Excellent product.

Works great, easy to install, excellent quality, adjustments all work very well. My only complaint is the saddle height screws are too long. They stick up above the saddle way too far to be comfortable. I've tried to find shorter ones, but the threads don't match on any of the replacements I've tried.

I got a gold one for a custom guitar I was building. Worked beautifully and was super easy to install. I only give it 4 stars because I didn't use the saddles, but replaced them with Ghost saddles. Made it a bit expensive for a metal plate...

These bridges are always true. Eazy to adjust intonation and string height. And if you follow Stew-Mac's guide to placement you can't go wrong. I've used these bridges on many of the guitars I've built and never had a problem with them.

Easy to put on, easy to adjust, everything is deburred so it doesn't cut into your hand like some of the Fender bridges.
