Schaller Roller Bridge

About This Item

A direct replacement for most Tune-o-matic style bridges!
Schaller's unique variation of the Tune-o-matic bridge features low-friction roller saddles for smoother tuning and tremolo action.

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.

Adjustable
string spread

1-29/32" to 2-1/4"
(48.42mm to 57.15mm)
Saddle radius
14"
(355.60mm)
Post spacing
2-29/32"
(73.82mm)
Stud threads
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

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.

This blows the original bridge away!

The tune-o-matic is famous, but seriously, it binds more and has no side-to-side adjustment. This bridge is a little tougher to intonate because of the fact the rollers turn a little too easy. I used lock-tite and simply don't care, its not that difficult.

Compare to other roller bridges that need screws turned in awkward ways and then you do feel pain.. They are very difficult to intonate. I got better playability (easier to bend strings) and better placement... the high-E was slightly too close to the edge for me. Enough that I found bending the high-E very hard. Now I don't. Love my choice, won't go back. I used this on a Epiphone Les Paul Standard Pro and the changes are stunningly better.

I will never build another guitar without one of the beauties. Aside from the easily adjustable intonation, the Schaller Roller Bridge also allows string spread adjustment. User's of Bigsby and similar type tremolo systems will also benefit from the rollers as they allow the strings to move freely without binding and dragging across the saddles. As far as looks go, it has a very contemporary, refreshing look. It also works great with string -through- body installations. Colors: Chrome and Gold. I would like to see a Black versions as well. A+ all the way!

This bridge is ideal for any guitar that has a Bigsby tremolo. I have this bridge on four of my guitars and it works great. My instruments stay in tune better and the strings last longer because the strings don't scrape the bridge where they usually break. Also, the rollers can be adjusted left or right to get your string positioning exactly where you want it and the quality is high and they look better than other roller bridges I have seen.

So I have a Gibson Flying V that has the slanted studs for a bridge, I am installing a Gibson Maestro Vibrola on it and this bridge does the trick with the rollers and.. slanted!!! Stays in tune perfectly!!

Les Paul Schaller Roller Bridge

I fitted a Schaller Roller Bridge to my Les Paul, together with a Bigsby Tremolo rig. After carefully checking the set up before I pulled it apart I found it easy to fit and then with some careful adjustments I managed to get it set up exactly as it was before. There was no loss in tone and I now have a tremolo set up that doesn't break strings or rock the bridge back and forth in the mountings!

I got mine when they were first offered. So I have mine on several guitars including my Gibson ES 339 and Epiphone ES 339 Ultra. You could go cheap but you won't get the same quality. I tried others and first thing that went was the finish on all gold ones. Best bet you have a good guitar, make it better with this bridge.
