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.

A good,well made,reliable component that "drops straight in" on relevant Gibson instrument (Les Paul).
Will definitely use again.

Just what this old 335 needed. Replaced the bent and corroded abr-1 and now the guitar looks beautiful, sustains for days and plays in tune.


Top Quality Bridge!

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a top quality, well built, and great looking bridge. The saddles aren't notched, and the material they are made from is very hard, so just be prepared. I replaced a roller bridge with this Nashville Tune-o-matic, (I also made a new bone nut at the same time), and between the two, it really made my guitar wake up. Highly recommended.
