Saddles for Original ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge

About This Item

From the manufacturer who makes the originals
Accurate replacement parts for many Gibson and US made ABR-1's with or without retainer wire. Fits the Original ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge.

We recommend ordering the matching Saddle Screws for Original ABR-1 to ensure the correct 4-40 thread fit.

Nickel and gold-plated brass. Set of 6.

These saddles are supplied without notches, for custom string spacing in your shop.

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.

Workable but tolerances are under par

So, while these fit my Gibson ABR, they are not height-compensated like the originals and two were off-center horizontally. I couldn't even use one, it was so off-center (luckily I didn't need them all).
