Golden Age Roller Bridge

About This Item

The only roller bridge that matches the 12" radius of the Nashville Tune-O-Matic. Low-friction brass roller saddles let the strings move freely and return to accurate pitch.

We designed this bridge to work with Bigsby vibratos, in place of the Nashville Tune-o-matic. This is the only roller bridge that matches the 12" radius of the Nashville, so you maintain the string action you're used to. We gave it a low profile to keep the strings clear of the bridge body too, eliminating a frequent source of vibrato problems.

Thumbwheel height-adjustment studs and knurled bushings are included.

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.

I used this bridge on a guild guitar and placed it in the right position,instead of the old one. My customer is very satisfied for the choice of this bridge because the guitar is really in tune.

A must buy as far as i'm concerned. Easier to set intonation, stays in tune better, and I was able to get a nicer setup than with the stock bridge. Gibson should have switched to these as standard a long time ago. Oh, and it looks cool as well.

I bought a epiphone wildkat guitar some years back. I never liked playing it because using the bigsby would cause tuning issues so it just sat in the corner collecting dust. I look for a roller bridge that would work with my guitar and thought this look like a winner. I read all the reviews and seem like a solid bridge. I didn't realize that I had to drill out the bushings treads that we're in my wildkat to make this work. I almost didn't install the bridge because of that, but I did drill it out anyway. I figured I wasn't really hurting the resale value because it wasn't a whole lot to start with. Anyway I tapped the new York farrell's in place and set in the bridge. Restrung the bigsby and set the bridge height, all this was great an ez enuff. Tuning was a lot of fun ( something no one tells you about) then I set the intonation and I was done and man does it make all the difference in the world. Very happy I did this upgrade. Well then why did I love it / hate it, I never like moding a guitar in a way that I can never change it back. As for the Nashville style bridge that was on the wildkat well that found a home on a guitar I was having trouble keeping intonation on. So now I'm happy with two of guitars.
