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.

Tip: Slotting Tune-o-matic style saddles
Nut slotting files work great for metal saddles. Choose your file size as you would when slotting a nut: use the same gauge as the string, or a few thousandths larger. After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

New build

(Customer's Reviews)

I installed this bridge on a new t-style build. It sounds as good as it looks. Installation was a breeze.


Very Nice

(Customer's Reviews)

This bridge made this guitar so much better. Everyone that has seen it is crazy about the way it looks as well.


Great Product!

(Customer's Reviews)

I used this on an original design guitar. It gave me the flexibility I needed to place the electronics control cavity to my liking. The fact that its a bridge/saddle/tailpiece together saved some space. It looks and feels super high quality. And the design allows for less string tension on the high e and b strings for comfortable bending. The sound is fantastic and it intonated very easily. I love it and it will be the standard bridge I put on this style guitar. Jam Guitars USA


Excellent Product, but...

(Customer's Reviews)

This bridge worked well on my Gibson Les Paul Goddess, but does not work with my 1954 Les Paul Goldtop reissue (R4) since the Goldtop bridge studs are slightly shifted to the bass side rather than symmetrical. The string symmetry ends up being too shifted towards the bass side.


Great Upgrade

(Customer's Reviews)

I shoppedaround alot looking at $100 bridges then got one of these. I stuck it on a Gibson Melody Maker I was hotrodding so I could set my intonation and was very happy I did. Installation and setup was FUN ! It's got locking stud mount too. If you're replacing a wrap around so it can be intonated, GET THIS MODEL !! SWEEEET !


Good looking bridge

(Customer's Reviews)

Overall, I really like this bridge. My only complaint is that the post washer is practically the same size as the insert, and for a newbie like me, that doesn't give you a lot of room for any error around where the insert meets the body (i.e. the post washer won't hide any errors). In the end, it turned out great though.

I love the aesthetics of this bridge but I am really pleased with the quality of construction, too. A really great product.
