A direct replacement for most Tune-o-matic style bridges!
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.
Schaller's unique variation of the Tune-o-matic bridge features low-friction roller saddles for smoother tuning and tremolo action.
1-29/32" to 2-1/4"
(48.42mm to 57.15mm)
M5 x .8 and
M8 x 1.25
Two sizes of studs included:
The M5 x .8 studs and bushings allow for an easy retrofit from a Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge, as used on many Gibson guitars. A set of M8 x 1.25 studs is also included for installation on most imported guitars with Tune-o-matic style bridges including Epiphone, Ibanez, BC Rich, and Samick. These will screw right into the existing bushings.
Use a 1/4" drill bit to install the bushings.
About bridge & tailpiece measurements
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.
